Unable to build qtdeclarative (cross-compiling Qt5 for Raspberry Pi zero W): Error ‘PATH_MAX’ was not declared in this scope
glamis last edited by
I have successfully cross-compiled qtbase for Raspberry Pi 0 W (by following https://wiki.qt.io/RaspberryPi2EGLFS) , but I'm unable to build the sub-module QtDeclarative for adding QML support. With Qt5.15.0 I'm getting the following error :
/qtdeclarative/src/3rdparty/masm/wtf/OSAllocatorPosix.cpp:86:14: error: ‘PATH_MAX’ was not declared in this scope char buf[PATH_MAX];
What am I doing wrong ?
@glamis I'm not sure why PATH_MAX isn't found in your source code, but this post should help you understand what it is: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/9449241/where-is-path-max-defined-in-linux

I ran into the same problem using GCC 8.3 as a cross compiler with the latest (as of 3-10-2020) raspbian. I guess that previously PATH_MAX was leaked by another header, hiding this bug. I fixed it by simply replacing the macro PATH_MAX with a constant (1024). That should be plenty of space to hold the 20 or so bytes that are copied into
buf, which isn't a real path anyway.

The actual fix is to either include linux/limits.h or fix memfdForUsage() to not allocate such a huge stack buffer for no reason at all.
