Raspberry Pi 3 Bullseye arm64 Noetic install

Trying to get off the ground with a Noetic first time install on Raspberry Pi 3 Model B running RPi OS Bullseye 64-bit. Here are the different attempts that manifested roadblocks for which my limited knowledge had no workarounds:

  • Couldn't install a Debian package because the documented URL was pointing to Ubuntu and my hunt-n-peck search revealed a completely different URL which I dutifully used but ran afoul of the UBUNTU_CODENAME because my replacement string Bullseye didn't work
  • Many of prerequisite Python packages couldn't be installed
  • In the Build from source script, I don't know the recommended vcs that I should use

This particular platform is intended for learning purposes only (crash-and-burn in due course). I really don't need Docker but is the Docker route my only option for the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B arm64 platform? Thanks.

Kind regards.

Bullseye is not an officially supported distribution for ROS Noetic, this is why there are no debian packages available for it. More details can be found on similar questions: The reference to know which distribution / architectures are supported by a given ROS Distribution is REP-003.

The approach I usually favor for RaspberryPis is to install an Ubuntu 64bits (20.04 Focal for ROS Noetic) on them and install ROS following the official installation instructions.
