5.11.3 static build problem (win10, MinGW730)

  • It's my first static build for qt.

    What is happend?

    OS: Win10 Pro X64 1803 17134.523
    1. QT 5.11.3 MinGW530_32
    2. QT 5.11.3 Source
    3. MinGW730_32 and 64 tools
    Note: Install from Qt installer.

    Prebuild env setup:

    set PATH=C:/Qt/Tools/mingw730_32/bin
    set PATH=%PATH%;C:/Qt/Tools/mingw730_32/opt/bin;C:\Qt\5.11.3\Src\gnuwin32\bin;C:\WINDOWS\System32;C:\WINDOWS
    set LANG=en
    cd C:\Qt\5.11.3\Src

    My configure cmd:

    configure.bat -static -release -platform win32-g++ -prefix  "C:\Qt\5.11.3\mingw73_32_static" -qt-zlib -qt-pcre -qt-libpng -qt-libjpeg -qt-freetype -opengl desktop -no-openssl -opensource -confirm-license -make libs -nomake tools -nomake examples -nomake tests -skip webengine -skip webview -skip qt3d

    All fine.

    But failed when I run mingw32-make -j9 .

    ..\..\..\..\include\QtFontDatabaseSupport\5.11.3/QtFontDatabaseSupport/private/qwindowsfontdatabase_ft_p.h:1:10: fatal error: ../../../../../src/platformsupport/fontdatabases/windows/qwindowsfontdatabase_ft_p.h: No such file or directory
     #include "../../../../../src/platformsupport/fontdatabases/windows/qwindowsfontdatabase_ft_p.h"

    Hi and welcome to devnet forum

    AFAIK it is still the case that the sources delivered with the pre-built versions cannot be used for new compilations. You would need to pull the sources from git or from the archives.

  • @koahnig Thanks for reply.

    I was tried build source from http://download.qt.io/official_releases/qt/5.11/5.11.3/single/qt-everywhere-src-5.11.3.tar.xz, the error still happened.

    I ready add under code to qtbase/mkspecs/win32-g++/qmake.conf

    QMAKE_LFLAGS += -static -static-libgcc
    QMAKE_CFLAGS_RELEASE += -Os -momit-leaf-frame-pointer

  • @kendling

    You need to use the zip archives on windows. tar.xz are for other OSes only.

    Furthermore, IIRC there is a problem with static compilations lately. There was an email lately concerning more testing and ensuring the compatibility for static bilds as well. You need to check with Qt Jira for a bug report there.

    Also beware of license implications when using static builds.

  • @koahnig
    Thanks again.

    I was tried the .zip source package. The problem still.

    Which version can build with static for now?

  • @koahnig

    I was solved this problem.

    The solution is call configure script and mingw32-make in other directory.


      - Qt
        - 5.11.3
          - src  (extract full source from zip package)
          - build  (run ..\src\configure.bat -static ... and then mingw32-make)
