Qt on Arch Linux, and not found

  • Hi,

    I can't compile anything. This is an output, it seems that 6th and 7th lines are the most important:

    I use Arch Linux 64 bits with all updates, but I have glibc v. 2.16.0-1 instead 2.16.0-3 which is the newest one. I'm not able to install the newest one because of issue with my distribution (

    The version of Qt Creator:
    @Qt Creator 2.5.2
    Based on Qt 4.8.2 (64 bit)
    Built on Aug 10 2012 at 22:33:07@

    I don't know what else can I say. I have been searching for solution for 2 hours, but I'm not able to find anything. Can anyone give me an advice please? Thank you in advance and I apologize for my english.


    When I try do the same in console:

    ...the output is the same.

    I have both libs provided by glibc 2.16.0-4 in /usr/lib on 64bit arch (fully upgraded).

    Try running @g++ -Wl,-O1,--sort-common,--as-needed,-z,relro -Wl,-O1 -o HelloWorld main.o -L/lib -L/usr/lib -lQtGui -lQtCore -lpthread@ in /media/sda3/cplusplus/qt/hello_world/HelloWorld-build-desktop-Qt_4_8_2_in_PATH__System__Release and see if that links. if so you might want to upgrade glibc after all, as the new one puts the two missing libs into /usr/lib while the old one puts them into /lib. Of course you can also add -L/lib to your LD_FLAGS.
