Hi, I use poudriere to build all my arm64 and armv7 on a rpi4/8GB. It's clocked to 2.1GHz, is v stable, runs stable/13. You need to make sure the cooling is very good. I use a FLIRC case. The case is the heatsink. I see 70-75 degC with a load of 5.00 at 29 degC ambient right now. It uses zfs and external usb3-connected-and-powered spinning rust. There is a swap partition here - 8GB. It's needed for the larger ports. You should configure poudriere to build using ccache. Builds will take ages otherwise. Right now it has USE_TMPFS="wrkdir data localbase" in poudriere.conf but I'm thinking of amending that to USE_TMPFS="wrkdir data" because sometimes it'll run out of swap building rust, for example. Either that or set PARALLEL_JOBS=2. -- J.
