Qt 5 compiling on Windows for Raspberry PI



  • I'm trying to compile Qt 5 for the Raspberry PI on my windows machine. Unfortunately during the configuring of the qtbase module everything ends already. It says: "Unkown option: -device-option". According to the docs this option is needed to set the path to the toolchain (using codesourcery which is available under windows). Why I want to do this is using Qt Creator on Windows to deploy to my rpi, as some of you know Qt creator needs a qmake executable to compile for the rpi before it can be deployed.

    My question is, does someone know a workaround and should this be reported as a bug?



  • You can't compile linux binaries under windows. It is not a BUG.
