Clock skew and Modification time in future issue in Qt App building

  • Hello Guys,

    I am new to Qt and start working on an app but get following error while building project for real device. Also on simulator app runs all the way fine it only gives error while building/running for real devices.
    Also it does not create any sis package in project folder directory. Please help me out on it.

    bq. make[1]: warning: Clock skew detected. Your build may be incomplete.
    C:\QtSDK\Symbian\SDKs\Symbian1Qt473\epoc32\tools\make.exe: warning: Clock skew detected. Your build may be incomplete.
    The process "C:\QtSDK\Symbian\SDKs\Symbian1Qt473\epoc32\tools\make.exe" exited normally.
    Error while building project umrahqml (target: Symbian Device)
    When executing build step 'Make'

    The error is all about clock skew problem and modification time issue. Any idea?
    My app is almost done but could not test as could not create sis package because of above error.

    Any idea/help will be highly appreciated.

    Thank You

  • The files has a future timestamp, check your computer clock and use a script to change his modified timestamp to current time.

  • Check the time on your computer. If that is not enough to get rid of the clock screw up, then do a clean rebuild.

  • I've also seen the clock skew if the build directory is hosted on a networked file system and the server's clock is off.
