Well, I'm not the OP, but after several aborted attempts at building 
GNUradio from source on the ODroid C2, I'd like to ask if there is an 
equivalent for ARMv8 to this, or, for that matter, where EPEL on Aarch64 
stands.  And I know this is an EPEL question, but, honestly, CentOS' 
usefulness is really tied to the availability of the third-party repos, 
and EPEL is the biggest.

(GNUradio has some modules that require more than 2GB Virt to compile 
(verified with a CentOS 7 x86_64 machine with only 2GB of RAM that took 
4 hours to build from source, and half of that time was spent thrashing 
on two files with a load average > 25), and the install I currently am 
working with is swapless, and the C2 only has 2GB of RAM; I'm looking at 
the feasibility/advisability of swap on microSD or eMMC.  The build 
panics the kernel at the first of those files).
