Can't build 4.8.3 , Unable to generate makefile for:

  • Hello Everyone,
    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
    Failure to open file: /home/dallas/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.8.3/src/3rdparty/webkit/Source/Makefile.WebKit
    Unable to generate makefile for:
    make[1]: *** [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.
