[SOLVED] Qt Creator 2.4.1 and gdb compile errors



  • Hi guys,

    I've looked all over for this and can't find an answer. Hope you can help.

    A hard drive failure forced me to do a couple of upgrades. I was using Qt Creator 2.3 and my compile errors and warnings were being displayed in the "Issues Tab", which is really convenient. However, when I upgraded to 2.4.1 this feature stopped working. I can't find a reference for what I need to do to get this working again. Can someone give me a hint as to what I need to reset. I've looked at the options and don't see anything obvious that I missed.

    Can someone point me in the right direction?

    Thank you,

    The tool chain decides how the output is parsed, so you need to make sure to have selected the correct tool chain for your project.



  • I double checked my Tool Chain and the correct compiler is there and being called however the compile errors are still not going to the Issues Tab. I tried splitting std::err and std::out on the General tab on the Build&Run Options dialog and this had no effect.



  • Discovered that my company has switched to ninja which does not send its out put to stderr. The guy who sets up our build system had added a wrapper to pipe the output back to stderr but forgot to re-install the wrapper after my system had to be rebuilt. (He also forgot to mention the wrapper at all.)

    Thanks to all who tried to help.
