Cannot build: Qt 4.8.1, Linux, error in qdrawhelper_sse2.cpp



  • Hi All,
    Perhaps someone can see the obvious problem with my attempt to build Qt 4.8.1 (or 4.8.0) on Linux using GCC.

    @
    $ make confclean
    $ ./configure --prefix=/mnt/data/qt/qt-4.8.1 -plugin-sql-sqlite -opensource
    --- 8< -- snip --
    Qt is now configured for building. Just run 'gmake'.
    Once everything is built, you must run 'gmake install'.
    Qt will be installed into /mnt/data/qt/qt-4.8.1

    To reconfigure, run 'gmake confclean' and 'configure'.
    $ make
    --- 8< -- snip --

  • You could try hacking it by using the configure option -no-sse2

    Hard to say what's going wrong, you've got a type 'Operator' that has not been defined, as to why, that may be a little tricky finding why.



  • Im out of topic, but yeah, another gentoo user here XD



  • Using -no-sse2 gets the process to a different failure point that seems related to ssse3. Adding -no-ssse3 gets me to more errors implying there might be some undesirable crossover with the system-wide Qt install (4.7.4).

    I also found https://bugreports.qt-project.org/browse/QTBUG-14443 with an almost identical symptom caused by some private headers being installed system wide. Gentoo does this:
    @
    private-headers : Install Qt declarative private headers required by Qt-creator
    QmlDesigner and QmlInspector plugins
    @

    painting/qdrawhelper_sse2.cpp does this:
    @
    include <private/qdrawhelper_x86_p.h>
    @

    so it could be picking up the unrelated
    @
    /usr/include/qt4/QtGui/private/qdrawhelper_x86_p.h
    @

    from the existing 4.7.4 install.

    I'll keep chipping away at this and also look at how this is avoided in the Gentoo supplied builds for Qt.
