Just to be clear when I said "arm" I really meant "aarch64", 32-bit version of qtwebengine is of not much interest to me. And at least qtwebengine 5.x builds just fine for aarch64 and using it daily as my primary web browsing engine. I don't expect qt6 to be much different but haven't tried to build it so far. _______________________________________________ pld-devel-en mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.pld-linux.org/mailman/listinfo/pld-devel-en
