Will Roon Bridge run on a Pi 1? [Answered, No]

I was going to post the same query about the Raspberry Pi 1 B+ this morning, before I saw this thread. I realize I’m talking about an even lower level of Pi, but has anyone used this model as an Roon end point with an ethernet connection and USB to a DAC? I have one hanging around and was thinking about trying it. I’m in Brasil, so I don’t have quick or cheap access to better models.

I’m afraid the Pi1 uses the older ARMv6 architecture, whereas Roon Bridge is compiled for ARMv7 (ARMv8 is coming), so it’s not compatible.

Thanks for the info about the old Pi. I’m glad I asked before I started tinkering. I’ll pick up a newer one on my next visit to Canada.
