Why Qt5 Beta has qmake that uses Qt 4.8?



  • Hi,
    I downloaded and installed qt-linux-opensource-5.0.0-beta1-x86-ubuntu1204-offline.run. After the installation my qmake -v informs me that qmake is using Qt version 4.8.1. I have clean ubuntu 12.04 without any earlier Qt versions.

    I am trying to build webkit but it can't be build with 4.x version of Qt.

    Any hints what to do? Could someone explain me why after Qt5 installation Qt 4.8.1 is the default Qt version?

    Thanks



  • Ok, got it working by setting PATH variable to point to the Qt5 tree..
