Qt Creator - how to create source package for maemo autobuilder?



  • Is there a way to create a source package (packagename_x.y.x_source.changes, packagename_x.y.x.dsc, packagename_x.y.x.tar.gz) using qt creator? is it possible on windows?

    So far I have used scratchbox on linux to create the source package that I can upload to the maemo autobuilder.



  • Can you generate binary packages for Maemo in your setup? If so, you can follow the instructions of the second post in "this thread":http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?t=57873 . Although they say it is not possible to do it inside Creator, you can try to add a build step for it in the project settings, inside Qt Creator.

    Right on target! Thanks!

    I have some information on the packaging here:
    http://tamss60.tamoggemon.com/2010/08/10/packaging-qt-applications-for-the-nokia-n900-the-smart-way/

    But: it never fully worked out for me![/quote]

    I finally figured out a simple way to make it work for my applications last week. Before I tried different processes and they all required more "work" than I think they should. As soon as I validate the process I plan to create a wiki... Once I have it done I will appreciate any feedback!

    p.s. I will make sure to check your instructions to see if I can use any to improve my process.

    Currently (version 2.1), there is no support for that. But 2.2 will have it, including the ability to optionally upload the generated files to the auto builder.

    This is really great news if it is true. Are you planning on meego support as well? building rpm packages and uploading to the meego obs?

    Obviously, Creator needs to support Meego at some point, and I think it's mostly a question of when the low-level packaging tools are ready. OBS is certainly a topic that belongs into this realm.

    I have to say that I liked you previous post much better :) It was much more decisive: we will have this on 2.2! Just kidding...

    I imagine that at this time in the game meego is probably a much higher priority than maemo... Not that I won't be glad to have the integration with maemo...
