Help with ./configure



  • Hello there I am trying to create the correct ./configure for compiling
    qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.8.7
    using Ubuntu 16.04 64bit

    My wish is to include in the ./configure
    mkspecs/linux-arm-gnueabi-g++
    so that I have a qmake option

    I will be very greatful if I could find help from a forum member as it is the first time I have attempted this.

    My configure idea so far:
    ./configure -opensource -confirm-license
    but then do i use -xplatform or -device before linux-arm-gnueabi-g++
    I get confused with understanding all the configuration options.

    Thanks

    Mostly, I am getting errors:
    make: arm-linux-gnueabi-g++: Command not found

    Makefile:190: recipe for target 'xlib.o' failed
    make: *** [xlib.o] Error 127
    XLib disabled.
    Basic XLib functionality test failed!
    You might need to modify the include and library search paths by editing
    QMAKE_INCDIR_X11 and QMAKE_LIBDIR_X11 in linux-arm-gnueabi-g++.

    That's very, very, very old.

    Don't hold your breath. Can't you update to something that's more recent than the bronze age?

    Could you provide more details on your goals?

    1. Why compile from source instead of using a pre-compiled version?
    2. Why use Qt 4.8 (which reached end-of-life in 2015) instead of Qt 5?
    3. What device (and what OS) are you targetting?

    In case it helps, here is a very detailed step-by-step tutorial that shows you how to build Qt 5.12.7 on different models of Raspberry Pi: https://www.tal.org/tutorials/building-qt-512-raspberry-pi
