Is there any future plans to release Raspberry Pi/ARMv6K versions of the Linux FMOD Ex libraries?

At this stage I cannot promise anything, but personally I’d really like to get FMOD running on the platform. We have been hoping to get an ARM version of FMOD supported for Linux for a while now (developers generally need source to do this) so perhaps Raspberry Pi would be a good vehicle for providing a public ARM Linux version.

I’m interested in a library build for linux-ARM (i.e. raspberry pi) too.
A cool starter project with this would be a sound simulator of another engine in your car, maybe even exterior speakers involved… (who wouldn’t like their eco hybrid/etc to sound like a v8 muscle car?)
I’ve seen the android lib which contains arm compiled libs, so it shouldn’t really be too hard to port them to linux arm, would it? 8)
Also, there are tons of projects going on with this cheap and tiny platform. FMOD Ex libs would make a lot of sense today…
Think about it, wouldn’t it be awesome that FMOD Ex will be the engine of choice for projects on these devices?

I’ve found these:
http://de2.mirror.archlinuxarm.org/arm/ … pkg.tar.xz

and

http://de2.mirror.archlinuxarm.org/armv … pkg.tar.xz

Does anyone know if these would work on the PI?
I’ll try when I get my PI back.

UPDATE:
I’ve installed the latest arch linux on my PI, upgraded everything with pacman -Syu and then….

[root@alarmpi ~]# pacman -S fmodex
resolving dependencies…
looking for inter-conflicts…

Packages (1): fmodex-4.44.21-1

Total Installed Size: 9.80 MiB

It seems that it installs fine.
Let’s see if it works. (The problem is I’ve just found out about fmod and this may take some time)

:(

[root@alarmpi generatetone]# make
g++ -O2 -o example main.cpp /usr/lib/libfmodex.so
/usr/lib/libfmodex.so: could not read symbols: File in wrong format

All my hopes are gone.
I think the included libs in arch linux distro are for x86.
That’s sad.

Well as it seems I’m talking on my own here, and BASS libs are compiled for armv6 even with support for hardfp as raspberry has, this is the way to go.
Too bad. I kind of liked fmod for a second or two.

Unfortunately we do not have an ARM version available for Linux, this is still reserved as an option for source licensees only.
The main reason for this is due to the many variants of ARM, i.e. armv6, armv7, armv8 (64bit), hardfp, softfp, VFP, NEON, we are reluctant to do builds for all options.

Well, just build for raspberrry pi then, you know. THAT VERY FAMOUS little armv6hf pcb.
There is even an official toolchain for cross compiling for it. https://github.com/raspberrypi/tools

Anyway, I had to try.. I’m not expecting it to happen. It seems you’re doing great on the platforms you have already. Why work extra.. right? 😳
Thank you!
