Can't build 4.8.3 , Unable to generate makefile for: WebKit.pro
I am trying to build Qt from the qt-everywhere-opensource-4.8.3 download. I have tried to build it, but I keep getting the following error. I'm on Ubuntu 12.04, 64 bit if that helps.
/home/dallas/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.8.3/bin/qmake -spec ../../../../mkspecs/linux-g++-64 -o Makefile.WebKit WebKit.pro
Failure to open file: /home/dallas/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.8.3/src/3rdparty/webkit/Source/Makefile.WebKit
Unable to generate makefile for: WebKit.pro
make: *** [Makefile.WebKit] Error 5
Since this is a 3rd party source, should I be doing something else ? I'm a newb when it comes to Qt. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Turns out that the Makefile did exists, but was owned and under the group root:root. How this happened I don't know. Sorry to waste folks time.
