Thank You Wizard, I am very pleased to hear this!  New information to me and many others I know.  In the early eighties there were tens of compiler systems for at least a dozen common eight bit processors, and “cross compiled” was unusual, and had a different meaning.  I was Not aware that the common use of the bcc compiler had so facilitated the use of a single line of script to produce code for an alternate chipset architecture!  :-)  Very pleased here!

Interesting. Looking at the package info in Debian, Krita is available for arm64 but not armhf (I've linked to the stretch package but it is true also for bullseye/sid):
https://packages.debian.org/stretch/krita

It would be interesting to see if you can use the dpkg --add-architecture trick to get krita for arm64 running in an armhf distro (in principle if should be fine... but I mostly run 64-bit distros on my PBP so I can't test). Something like:

dpkg --add-architecture arm64
apt update
apt install krita

PS If the later doesn't work try apt install krita:am64

The error you see looks non-fatal (and I think is due to a custom PPA added to your install).

However...

I dug out an SD card with the mrfixit image on it and it looks like krita's dependencies are too complex to allow it to be installed in a 32-bit OS (it looks to me like it ends up wanting to install packages that cannot be parallel installed).

It would still be possible to run krita in a container but this is *way* more complex to setup than it would have been using the add-architecture trick.

So, cute idea... but sadly it won't work.
