Building QT from git



  • I'm using this link:

    https://wiki.qt.io/Building_Qt_5_from_Git#Building_Qt_WebKit

    When I run:

    ../qt5/configure -developer-build -opensource -nomake examples -nomake tests
    

    The terminal runs and spits out a lot of unreadable stuff, but it seems to work.
    The thing is that it stopped at these lines:

    Info: creating super cache file D:\Projects\plasmoqt\build\.qmake.super
    Info: creating cache file D:\Projects\plasmoqt\build\.qmake.cache
    Info: creating stash file D:\Projects\plasmoqt\build\.qmake.stash
    

    And I have no idea what to do, the process is still running for more than 40 minutes.

    What is going on?

    This does not mention any error. Try running configure with verbose flag to see more output.

    Kill it. Configure typically finishes in a few minutes, 40 is definitely too long.

    Compilation, later on - yea that step can take between 30 minutes and 2 days (depending on CPU).

    What is going on?

    No idea, I don't have enough information.
