I’ve been trying to get Anki working on an ARM-based Jetson Nano running NVIDIA’s Linux4Tegra 32.6.1, which is built on Ubuntu 18.04.
I cloned ankitects/anki at commit a765ab95ec128cb8e46579509f73350c513e3232 and tried building wheels both ways, with
scripts/docker/build.sh arm64 using both Python 3.10 and Python 3.9. Both methods succeed and produce two wheels, named as follows:
pip install anki-2.1.49-cp39-abi3-manylinux_2_31_aarch64.whl aqt-2.1.49-py3-none-any.wh or just
pip install anki-2.1.49-cp39-abi3-manylinux_2_31_aarch64.whl fails with:
`ERROR: anki-2.1.49-cp39-abi3-manylinux_2_31_aarch64.whl is not a supported wheel on this platform.
I don’t understand why the wheel I built on directly this platform wouldn’t be supported by the platform it was built on. This is my main question.
pip install, I did upgrade
pip to the latest and have verified that it’s using Python 3.9:
$ pip --version pip 21.3.1 from /usr/local/lib/python3.9/site-packages/pip (python 3.9)
aqt-2.1.49-py3-none-any.whl seems to depend upon the
anki package, s it refuses to install with:
ERROR: Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement anki==2.1.49 (from aqt) (from versions: 2.1.24+359b9f5c, 2.1.25, 2.1.26, 2.1.28, 2.1.29, 2.1.30, 2.1.31, 2.1.32, 2.1.33, 2.1.34, 2.1.35) ERROR: No matching distribution found for anki==2.1.49
Interestingly, I am able to install
aqt directly from PyPI with
pip install aqt, but
import aqt fails with
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'anki'.
Perhaps it’s also worth mentioning as an aside that there is actually an
anki package (version 2.1.0+dfsg~b36-1) available via
apt from the repository
http://ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports bionic/universe arm64, but it is an out-of-date beta, which displays the following message on
stdout whenever run:
This is an BETA build - please do not package it up for Linux distributions
Well apparently someone disregarded that. But whatever. I would be happy to use it if only it worked, but although it does run, it fails to open any of my decks with the following error message:
Anki was unable to open your collection file. If problems persist after restarting your computer, please use the Open Backup button in the profile manager:

Various forum posts which reference this issue, such as this one, state that the solution is to upgrade. Since there is no more recent version available in the repositories, that’s why I’m trying to build my own.
Thanks in advance for any help.
