QT 5.15.0 cross-compile from source fails



  • Hello,

    I am hoping someone out there can help with getting QT to cross compile to RPI4. Here are the details:

    Host System: WIN10
    Target System: RPI4 (2020-05-27-raspios-buster-lite-armhf)
    Native Compiler: 8.1.0-1-202004170606i686-8.1.0-release-posix-dwarf-rt_v6-rev0 (downloaded from QT)
    Cross Compiler: raspberry-gcc8.3.0-r2 (downloaded from gnutoolchains.com)
    QT Source: qt-everywhere-src-5.15.0

    I'm building in a MSYS2 enviornment (msys2-x86_64-20200720) and following a tutorial from a post on this forum which is based on this tutorial with the only thing changed is updated versions of the tools.

    Thus far, I have been able to build qmake and configure (not sure if the config is exactly correct for the target system). The error occurs whenever make is trying to use qmltyperegistrar.exe for anything. Since I'm running make -j4, the build fails at different places but with the same error: "Bad Address"

    'C:\SysGCC\qt-build\qtdeclarative\bin\qmltyperegistrar.exe' --generate-qmltypes=plugins.qmltypes --import-name=Qt.test.qtestroot --major-version=1 --minor-version=0 --foreign-types=C:/SysGCC/Raspberry/arm-linux-gnueabihf/sysroot/SysGCC/mingw32/msys2/usr/local/qt5/lib/metatypes/qt5test_metatypes.json,C:/SysGCC/Raspberry/arm-linux-gnueabihf/sysroot/SysGCC/mingw32/msys2/usr/local/qt5/lib/metatypes/qt5widgets_metatypes.json,C:/SysGCC/qt-build/qtdeclarative/lib/metatypes/qt5quick_metatypes.json,C:/SysGCC/Raspberry/arm-linux-gnueabihf/sysroot/SysGCC/mingw32/msys2/usr/local/qt5/lib/metatypes/qt5gui_metatypes.json,C:/SysGCC/qt-build/qtdeclarative/lib/metatypes/qt5qmlmodels_metatypes.json,C:/SysGCC/qt-build/qtdeclarative/lib/metatypes/qt5qml_metatypes.json,C:/SysGCC/Raspberry/arm-linux-gnueabihf/sysroot/SysGCC/mingw32/msys2/usr/local/qt5/lib/metatypes/qt5network_metatypes.json,C:/SysGCC/Raspberry/arm-linux-gnueabihf/sysroot/SysGCC/mingw32/msys2/usr/local/qt5/lib/metatypes/qt5core_metatypes.json --private-includes -o qt5quicktest_qmltyperegistrations.cpp qt5quicktest_metatypes.json
    make[3]: execvp: C:\SysGCC\qt-build\qtdeclarative\bin\qmltyperegistrar.exe: Bad address
    make[3]: *** [Makefile:742: qt5quicktest_qmltyperegistrations.cpp] Error 127
    make[3]: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....
    make[3]: Leaving directory '/c/SysGCC/qt-build/qtdeclarative/src/qmltest'
    make[2]: *** [Makefile:317: sub-qmltest-make_first-ordered] Error 2

    make[1]: Leaving directory '/c/SysGCC/qt-build/qtdeclarative'
    make: *** [Makefile:340: module-qtdeclarative-make_first] Error 2
    

    This is a bit cryptic, of course. So I tried running the command make is trying to run on both the MSYS2 command line and the native Windows command line and the result is the same:

    PS C:\SysGCC\qt-build> C:\SysGCC\qt-build\qtdeclarative\bin\qmltyperegistrar.exe --generate-qmltypes=plugins.qmltypes --import-name=Qt.test.qtestroot --major-version=1 --minor-version=0 --foreign-types=C:/SysGCC/Raspberry/arm-linux-gnueabihf/sysroot/SysGCC/mingw32/msys2/usr/local/qt5/lib/metatypes/qt5test_metatypes.json,C:/SysGCC/Raspberry/arm-linux-gnueabihf/sysroot/SysGCC/mingw32/msys2/usr/local/qt5/lib/metatypes/qt5widgets_metatypes.json,C:/SysGCC/qt-build/qtdeclarative/lib/metatypes/qt5quick_metatypes.json,C:/SysGCC/Raspberry/arm-linux-gnueabihf/sysroot/SysGCC/mingw32/msys2/usr/local/qt5/lib/metatypes/qt5gui_metatypes.json,C:/SysGCC/qt-build/qtdeclarative/lib/metatypes/qt5qmlmodels_metatypes.json,C:/SysGCC/qt-build/qtdeclarative/lib/metatypes/qt5qml_metatypes.json,C:/SysGCC/Raspberry/arm-linux-gnueabihf/sysroot/SysGCC/mingw32/msys2/usr/local/qt5/lib/metatypes/qt5network_metatypes.json,C:/SysGCC/Raspberry/arm-linux-gnueabihf/sysroot/SysGCC/mingw32/msys2/usr/local/qt5/lib/metatypes/qt5core_metatypes.json --private-includes -o qt5quicktest_qmltyperegistrations.cpp qt5quicktest_metatypes.json
    Error opening qt5quicktest_metatypes.json for reading
    

    Again, this happens at different build steps but they always involve qmltyperegistrar.exe. This executable seems to run fine on its own:

    And the file in question seems to be ok: (partial copy of \qtdeclaritive\lib\metatypes\qt5quicktest_metatypes.json)

  • So, I tried again. I blew up the build folder and installed mingw64 (8.1.0-1-202004170606x86_64-8.1.0-release-posix-seh-rt_v6-rev0) and installed the same MSYS2 version into its folder and reran the configure and make and got a similar error:

    I almost missed but it looks as if the file name/path is getting messed up:

    C;C:\SysGCC\mingw64\msys2\SysGCC\raspberry\arm-linux-gnueabihf\sysroot\SysGCC\mingw64\msys2\usr\local\qt5\lib\metatypes\qt5core_metatypes.json
    

    Is this a bug in qmltyperegistrar ,or a Makefile issue, or something completely different?



  • Running the command again directly from the MSYS shell gives that 'bad address' failure:

  • After some research, I learned its much better to build Qt on Windows through a native Windows command prompt. After switching to PowerShell, I can progress much further into the build.

    I'm now having issues specifically with the QtLocation module. I'm currently getting the following error when trying to build QtLocation:

    cd location\ && ( if not exist Makefile C:\SysGCC\qt-build\qtbase\bin\qmake.exe -o Makefile C:\SysGCC\qt5\qtlocation\src\location\location.pro ) && C:/SysGCC/mingw32/bin/mingw32-make -f Makefile
    Project ERROR: Could not find feature location-labs-plugin.
    mingw32-make: *** [Makefile:181: sub-location-make_first] Error 3
    

    It appears that the source tree \qtlocation\src\imports folder contains a locationlabs folder but it isn't getting built as the shadow build folder \qtlocation\src has no imports subfolder and the Makefile makes no mention of it.

    Anyone able to help with this error?
