I just downloaded the brand new 64bit Image for the Raspberry Pi. Node red is not on board.
So i tried the bash ... command described on the website.
My raspi is now for longer than 90 min busy with the install, currently at 'Installing node-red core'.
Is there another method to install node-red on the 64bit image?
After starting the script a message appears, saying it may last 20 to 30 min on slowest machines.
I killed it after 90 min.
Restarted, 30 min later it finished, with success.
But hey, this IS a slow machine! Tried a bigger program, takes longer to load than on a 32bit system on the same pi.
Booting takes also much longer than with a 32 bit system.
When the pi4 with 4 GB are available again, i will try this combination.
So for the moment thank you all for the help,
I think maybe that text needs to be ammended.
I seem to remember seeing that a 64 bit OS is better if you have plenty of memory, but not so good if the amount of memory is limited. I can't find that now though.
