Hopefully just a small quick question that's easy to answer.
I wanted to ask it on the IRC, but libera apparently dislikes VPNs.
I'm trying to compile something that wants qtsystems5-dev.

I try to install it:

$ sudo apt-get install qt5-qmake qtsystems5-dev qtmultimedia5-dev qttools5-dev-tools libqt5opengl5-dev
E: Unable to locate package qtsystems5-dev

It doesn't work.
Debian has it: … stems5-dev

I have Devuan Beowulf. Even though it's oldstable, I hope this package is somehow available to me.

Please help me figure out how to get this package.
Thank you.

You link clearly shows that package is only available in bullseye/chimaera or later.

Debian haven't backported it. The OP may have luck doing it themselves but it looks like most of the dependencies would also have to be backported as well. Good luck with that.

To obtain a root shell use su -. Using just su will result in "command not found" messages.
