Qt World Summit: Register Today!


  • Ive installed the latest version, downloaded add ons libraries LOADS. When i compile and run, i get errors saying this os x version not support, ive looked at the code it runs up to 10.7.something and my version on my laptop is 10.8.1..... should this really be a problem?

    Also it cant find libraries either, when i havnt deleted anything or changed any of the installation paths, its installed by its self and i assume it would install wherever it has to go....

    Help? QT was recommended for writing a program for my small business idea, but however ive spent 2/3 days working hard and got no further then getting errors, ive tried uninstalling and reinstalling to no avail....

    Hope someone can help.

    The warning about 10.8 was removed in Qt4.8.3, make sure you install the newest version (4.8.3 was released last week).

    Please elaborate on "it can't find libraries either". If you want to be helped, give us enough information to start the investigation. Otherwise, people are not likely to guess what you mean.

  • based on Qt 4.7.4 (64 bit),

    this is the one i downloaded this morning again? the download started automatically from the download page.?

    i will find out about the lib's now

  • :-1: warning: directory not found for option '-L/usr/local/pgsql/lib'

    and also this

    :-1: warning: directory not found for option '-L/tmp/qt-stuff-85167/source/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.8.1/Desktop/Qt/4.8.1/gcc/lib'

    these come up on every program i try to run

  • So what am I downloading? The program again? The libraries? I'm new to this so need it all laid out as simple as possible. Sorry for asking silly questions.

    Mate, please, start reading with understanding. I know it might be frustrating, beginnings in a new environment, but to be honest - it is not my problem. I have given you enough information. You have to download the LIBRARIES (clear link at the top of the page, isn't there?), version 4.8.3 (there is only one 4.8.3 package for Mac on entire page).

    As for library problems, I have no idea, I haven't encountered that problem. Then again, I'm not too fluent on Mac, I use it only when I have to. Judging from this suspicious "tmp" folder, you've installed something wrongly. Get the libs, install them, maybe those warnings will go away.
