Studio code server: not compatible?

I have 2 raspberry 4, both running

  • DietPi
  • docker
  • home assistant supervised in docker

On one of them (rpi-87), I could install the studio code server addon.
On the other (rpi-86), I received the message “This add-on is not compatible with the processor of your device or the operating system you have installed on your device.”

Weird thing: I noticed following: both devices seems to be “Raspberry Pi 4 Model B Rev 1.1”, but there is a difference in hardware:

Anybody else experienced the same problem?
Is there so much difference in the both devices? First time I noticed this problem…


There’s something wrong there. According to this your second pi is not a pi4 (it’s not even a pi2 or pi3).

Only the first gen models shipped with the BCM2835:


That makes it even more weird.
The second one ( RPI-87) can run visual studio code server. The other ( RPI-86) not…
At that time, I pre-ordered the RPI-86 (24/07/2019), so maybe this was one of the first rpi’s on the market and that explains the difference???

Why my second (RPI-87) is not a rpi4, I can’t understand. It has the same formfactor, has 1000MB/s network, 4GB, etc… and ordered on, a trustworthy webshop…

Ah, you should be using this command instead:

This gives

root@rpi-86:~# cat /proc/device-tree/model
Raspberry Pi 4 Model B Rev 1.1


root@rpi-87:~# cat /proc/device-tree/model
Raspberry Pi 4 Model B Rev 1.1


This is the only difference I can see:

back to the original question…
According to your info, the RPI-86 has the correct CPU for an rpi4.
Any idea why it can’t run Studio code server?

Same problem here. Did you get any solution.
Best regards
