As Im hoping you get what I was saying in the title but am having trouble trying to figure out which processor to select in Klipper FW's initial setup in Octopi at the point where I input "Make Menuconfig" after I have run "cd Klipper?" I have seen that Nero3dp has gotten the D3M5+ to run on Klipper so anyways I too want to get that up and running on my D3M5+? I have sort of given up on RepRap even though I got it all updated to 3.3.0 and got my SBC to update itself now that part was really easy getting the RPi 4b to update itself to all of the latest and greatest everything but when it goes to update the actual D3M5+ the RPi is never able to actually do any "talking" or rather, "communicating" with the Duet 3 Mini 5+ it just keeps saying "connecting" onto infinity and I have included the DSF at least on the SBC's part but every single time Im doing any uploading in Standalone mode I try to upload anything big into "System" via the Upload and Install process it will go through X number of files before it disconnects from the WiFi service and it fails to upload all of the "X" files. DSF has 1015 files and I was lucky to get through 20 last night before it cancels which was a record. Ive looked in the tutorials and have checked the "SBC / Duet not communicating" section to no avail so I am a bit frustrated so anyways I really wanted the SBC/Duet3Mini5+ thing to work cause I prefer Ethernet over WiFi for lots of reasons but cant get the Duet3Mini/SBC to communicate but again I can easily get the RPi/SBC to update itself to all of the latest everything but again as soon as it tries to connect to the SBC it says "connecting" onto infinity and I can see DWC in the background but can never get the two to talk to eachother its frustrating. I have also tried starting the DCS manually but it never stays connected so anyways its too late to say long story short but long story short I am trying to move to Klipper mainly because of the option to do Input Shaping so I can tune my Printer to reach its fastest potential speed so Klipper seems to be the winner in that dept though I find TAMV appealing on the RepRap side but cant seem to get my boards to talk and or get wifi to stay connected so Im frustrated.
So again what is the processor to select in the Klipper initial setup process from the Octopi SSH side of things. I have found the Duet 3 Mini 5+'s process but can not seem to find that same processor in the Make Menuconfig option of the Klipper FW's initial setiup????
Thanks in advance sorry for the long drawn out sob story I just want to get this project up and running so I can get this here Chiron sold so I can do somethings for my wife she deserves it! Thanks!
EDIT: I have ordered an Adafruit 40pin to 26pin downgrade ribbon cable to see if it is the fault of the Ribbon Cable even though I have been through 2 Duet 3 Mini 5+ boards with both of the 40p to 26p Ribbon Cable's not being able to talk to the Duet3 Mini 5+ / SBC so anyways there you go let me know thanks!

If you'd like to run Klipper you'll probably want to ask this sort of thing in the Klipper firmware Discord channel: https://discord.klipper3d.org/
And Klipper board configs are over on GitHub
Most of the detailed support for running Klipper on Duet hardware can be found there.
However if you still want to give RRF a chance start here by posting your config.g and the output of M122 inside code-blocks (the </> button at the top of the post entry window). And people here will help you dig into why your Pi and Duet hate each other.

@nurgelrot Thanks man I appreciate that just needed those links Im surprised that didnt show up on a Google search i knew I should have at least searched through Github lols. Yeah they seem to hate each other but I have an Adafruit 26p to 40p downgrade cable on order will be here next week so am hoping to eliminate some variables with that there ribbon cable anyways yeah I definitely want to give RRF another try I actually want to see about making my Anycubic Chiron a dual boot if not triple boot machine as in it can boot up into Marlin, RRF, and Klipper depending on which SD card you place into which board or it might even be possible to use the same SD card partitioned correctly but dont know how to properly boot all of those at which time or whatever so I am learning. I know Marlin pretty darn well and am new to this Klipper and RRF but all I know is I want more out of my printer and 3d printing in general. Again thanks that made my day!!!!!!!!

@Nurgelrot oh and the purpose of the triple or double boot thing is options for the customer as I wish to sell the machine after Ive commissioned it and tuned it right but my first priorities are RRF and Klipper anyways thats it thanks!

@pickett Hi - I wrote the Klipper config for the Mini 5+.
its literally in the first 3 lines.
# This file contains common pin mappings for the Duet3 Mini 5+. To use # this config, the firmware should be compiled for the ATSAMD51P20 # with a "25Mhz crystal", "16KiB bootloader", and USB communication.
