[SOLVED]qmake :: error when used for target i.MX
Having built Qt for Embedded [Qt_Everywhere_Opensource] on i.MX5X successfully, an Application has been tried on Qt Creator IDE [from Qt_SDK_4.8.0] on Host-PC, with the build, qmake being done well.
The application binary has been generated with a makefile, that uses the native-gcc as the work is being done on Host. The binary has been successfully run on the Qt_Simulator.
Now that, I wanted to try this on Target, I did this
Cross-Compile [ Using arm-none-linux-gnueabi- YYY ] the Project files with the qmake binary for i.MX5X
post4pavan@ubuntu:/usr/local/Trolltech/Qt-target-version/bin$ ./qmake /home/post4pavan/Work/hi/hi.pro
Failure to open file: /usr/local/Trolltech/Qt-target-version/bin/Makefile
Unable to generate makefile for: /home/post4pavan/Work/hi/hi.pro
You are trying to create your build system in /usr/local/Trolltech/Qt-target-version/bin. If you don't happen to be root (which would be stupid, root should not be used to build!), then this has to fail.
Try running "/usr/local/Trolltech/Qt-target-version/bin/qmake ../hi/hi.pro" in /home/post4pavan/Work/hi-build instead. Does that work?
Hi, Tobias Hunger, thank you!
Yeah! that solution worked! and I have solved it.
Foolish on my part to forget the basic that we should not build with in the /usr/local/....../Trolltech/.. root area.
Thank You once again...!
