Cross-Compilation Embedded Board



  • Hello guys.
    I am having a hard time understanding how to make a cross-compilation using QT for an embedded board.
    Most of the tutorials that I see require to have the board connected to the computer when performing the cross-compilation, and it does not add up to me.
    Is ti required to connect the board for a cross-compilation using QT?

    Another question, when I try to set up the kit em QT for cross-compilation I am not able to find the device that I want in the list available in QT. I can add the device, but it shows only two types (Generic Linux Device and QNX device) and my board is a pixhawk.
    Any comment is welcomed.

    Thanks in advance

    Definitely not. You need the cross toolchain, and a crosscompiled Qt - either provided or self compiled. You need the board to deploy and debug your app, though.

    Thats Ok, as long as it runs Linux ;)
