I am aware of that. However, it would be nice to have wheels for these 
architectures so that one could "pip install pyqt6" and get the latest 
wheels and be independent from the distribution. Ubuntu 22.04 as an 
example does not ship 'python3-pyqt6...' packages. That was the reason I 
installed Manjaro on my Raspberry Pi in order to have PyQt6 to run eric7.

I'll give it a try.
