"configure" "-no-neon" Option for Building Qt 4.8.3 with BBNDK 2.1. Required?

  • Quick question.

    Playbook is running dual-core A9's right? SO why do we need to specifiy "-no-neon" for configure? Is this something to do with the BBNDK compilers (4.4.3 of GCC I think) or a work around for some other bug.
    I suppose I'm asking "Has anybody tried compiling without -no-neon for Playbook?"


  • We received some reports that NEON support has some issues on the PlayBook so the recommendation is to disable NEON support when building for this device. Please feel free to enable it and provide feedback as to your experiences. Other BB devices should work fine with NEON.
