QtWebEngine Illegal Instruction

  • Hi,

    I am developing a QT app for rpi 0 w. I have used buildroot to create my own image. I have a Qt app running on it, and now I need to add a web browser to my app. On a first approach I am using WebEngineView, but the app is not running, and I only have the import QtWebEngine 1.8, no more code related to WebEngine

    # ./cp4gui -platform eglfs
    Illegal instruction

    # You can also make your code fail to compile if it uses deprecated APIs.

    Any idea?
