I'm trying to run apgluxe on my Raspberry pi, but it doesn't work because it's not x86. what should I do?

Use the Golly Python version instead. Lifelib (upon which apgluxe is based) derives its speed from being able to write its own assembly code. (The fastest linear algebra packages, ATLAS and OpenBLAS, are similar in this respect.) Unfortunately, that means it only works with the instruction sets that it directly supports, which in the case of lifelib are all x86_64-based.
