X-Plane and HiTL Simulation on TX2

Hi there,

We’re developing a Flight Management System using the TX2 as a flight controller.

I tried installing X-Plane 10 on the TX2 as part of a HiTL experiment.

It seems to me that X-Plane 10 is targeted at x86 platforms. I haven’t worked with ARM before. Is it possible to run x86 targeted binaries on ARM. I assume not without some kind of virtualisation. Alternatively, can one compile or build sources for ARM?

Please advise,

If you have access to the sources, typically it’s a straightforward recompilation process for ARM that “just works” (minus x86-specific SSE/AVX).

Since it’s a different architecture, not without emulation or a VM, which probably won’t lead to the greatest performance.
