Pdf Renderer NOT for ARM64 . What else ?

Hi,

I'm testing ACS 6.2 on ARM64 hardware (Raspi 4, 8 Gb)

It works (!), but I cannot use the pdfrendere, beeing provided and licensed only for mac/win/linux on amd64.

May we remove the program and ANY referens in alfresco.globa.properties,  without ANY problems ?

Who will provide the pdf rendering in his place ?

Imagemagic ?

Any configuration CORRECTION needed ?

AFAIK this hardware is not supported. 

You can remove the following config: 

#PDF Renderer config, used for previewing pdf docs.
alfresco-pdf-renderer.root=/usr/local/alfresco-community62ga/alfresco-pdf-renderer
alfresco-pdf-renderer.exe=${alfresco-pdf-renderer.root}/alfresco-pdf-renderer

No imagemagick doesn't generate previews for PDFs. You may have to use custom extension and libraries such as itext to generate the previews on upload/create event.

You can try building pdfium for ARM:

Thanks Angelborray for the hint.

One more info:

considering that all the "office" document type are rendered in pdf by soffice.bin in headless mode, and image file are rendered in pdf by ImageMagick:

WHICH other file types are processed by PDFrenderer ?
