in this case seems the arch are not the same.. please report the exact
hardware you are in use, i remenber that in debian theres a new floavor ofr
arm devices

this confirm that the arch are not same, a possible could be that you are
in multiarch mode and try to run a different arch, take in consideration
that now in debian we can mix different archs

this its a common qt4 vs qt5 dependency problem the qt installed are
incomplete, you must revise packages and disable qt5 modules in gambas,
install complete qt4 modules and then setupd with update-alternatives the
qt environment correctly

its a common guindows problems, your cup are full of win32 knowlegde..

seems the problem in your case its a very older arm class hardware,

please can you report exact model in use for that?
