Qt 4.7.0 error on make (invalid pointer to bit-field)

  • I'm trying to compile and install Qt 4.7.0 on AIX 5.3 with gcc 4.2.0 (tried gcc 3.3.2 as well). The make fails on line 181 of qstatemachine.cpp and I'm a little out of my depth:

    179 QStateMachinePrivate::QStateMachinePrivate()
    180 {
    181 QAbstractStatePrivate::isMachine = true;

    The make error:

    @g++ -c -mpowerpc -fpermissive -mminimal-toc -O2 -Wall -W -D_THREAD_SAFE -DQT_SHARED -DQT_BUILD_CORE_LIB -DQT_NO_USING_NAMESPACE -DQT_NO_CAST_TO_ASCII -DQT_ASCII_CAST_WARNINGS -DQT3_SUPPORT -DQT_MOC_COMPAT -DQT_USE_FAST_OPERATOR_PLUS -DQT_USE_FAST_CONCATENATION -DHB_EXPORT=Q_CORE_EXPORT -DQT_NO_DEBUG -D_LARGEFILE64_SOURCE -D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE -I../../mkspecs/aix-g++ -I. -I../../include -I../../include/QtCore -I.rcc/release-shared -Iglobal -I../3rdparty/harfbuzz/src -I../3rdparty/md5 -I../3rdparty/md4 -I.moc/release-shared -o .obj/release-shared/qstatemachine.o statemachine/qstatemachine.cpp

    If you need additional information, let me know. I've searched and only found references to this same error, so I'd appreciate places to look as well as things to try. Thanks for any and all help.

  • Are you following the build "tips":http://doc.qt.nokia.com/4.7/compiler-notes.html#ibm-xlc-aix for AIX?

    If yes, file a bug on Qt's bug tracker.

  • Thanks for the reply. I'll file a bug report on it.
