How to fix this problem?

Don't compile the whole thing, just compile geph4-client with --manifest-path=geph4-client/Cargo.toml

Thanks @匿名用户 @nullchinchilla ! Your responses point to the same thing and I'll try it.

However, what's the reason behind this?

For anyone who may compile geph directly on low-power devices, make sure you have enough ram or swap space.

On archlinuxarm @ rpi3, 1gb ram is not enough, another zram of 512MB is required.

More questions:

  1. Will there be pre-compiled binaries for every kind of devices like v2ray does?
  2. Is there any description for the usage of components other than Geph-client?

This is sweet. However,

  1. No linux-aarch64 build as far as I see. geph4-client-linux-armv7 build is okay to run on my rpi3.
  2. Will you provide manuals on other components like geph-binder and geph-exit?

Can you try geph4-client-android-aarch64 and see if it works?

Not working.

Maybe you can use GitHub Actions to create a custom CI workflow to cross-compiling it yourself.

cross build --release --locked --target aarch64-unknown-linux-gnu --manifest-path=geph4-client/Cargo.toml

Thanks, it works.
