[SOLVED] manual downloading arm64 packages

I made the mistake of purging network-manager and it's associated packages then discovered I couldn't figure out how to get the network configured again.
    Consequently I switched to a Debian bookworm install to replace the packages I had purged. I was unable to figure out how to tell the 'Devuan Package Information' system that I wanted arm64 rather than amd64 packages.
   The only way I found was to search for the package, select the appropriate version that matched up with daedalus, on the new page I then scrolled down to the download link for the amd64 version copied the link, pasted it into the browser address bar, changed 'amd64' to 'arm64' in the address and then downloaded the correct package.
    Needless to say that was rather a hassle and quite time consuming for 21 packages.
    I suspect there is an easier way and hope someone here will point it out to me.

Thanks,
Mike

Re: [SOLVED] manual downloading arm64 packages

There is the "Packages"-link in the upper-right-corner, https://pkginfo.devuan.org/ . The search pattern is: "PackageName":"Architecture".
Search for e.g.: "network-manager:arm64".
(next page) Select the link matching your devuan-version.
(next page) A bit down the page is a download link to the package.  ( https://pkginfo.devuan.org/cgi-bin/pack … 4-1devuan1 )

Hope this helps, but not sure whether this is understandable.
