Cant Install SAMBA4

I am trying to install luci-app-samba4 for my Bananapi BPI-R3 router. I am getting the following error. I am currently running on the latest snapshot. Any Idea why there are no packages for architecture ARMv8 Processor rev 4 with a target of mediatek/filogic?

What do I need to do to get this installed?

# opkg install luci-app-samba4
Unknown package 'luci-app-samba4'.
Collected errors:
 * pkg_hash_check_unresolved: cannot find dependency samba4-server for luci-app-samba4
 * pkg_hash_fetch_best_installation_candidate: Packages for luci-app-samba4 found, but incompatible with the architectures configured
 * opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package luci-app-samba4.

What is the output of:

ubus call system board
cat /etc/opkg/distfeeds.conf
cat /etc/opkg/customfeeds.conf

Here is the requested data:

~# ubus call system board
        "kernel": "5.15.110",
        "hostname": "OpenWrt",

~# cat /etc/opkg/customfeeds.conf

What is the output of:

opkg update
opkg install samba4 luci-app-samba4

The samba build is failing as is gnutls on which it depends. This is with snapshot.

What can i do to fix this? I can only use snapshots because the Bananapi isn't supported on anything else yet.

Not a direct solution but why not use ksmbd instead of samba4?

A fix is being worked on related to this, I think:

A lot of compile issues have been related to this problem recently. You may have to wait a little bit if you want to use samba4, but it looks like it's almost resolved.

It looks like everything is back to normal with samba4 in snapshot.
