Problem with building QT 5 Windows 7 x64 and MinGW

  • Hello.
    This is my first post, and i want to say sorry for my English.

    I starded to build QT 5 for MinGW x32 (and the x64 if it will work) a few days ago. I always got some errors, and now I almost give up.

    I used these tutorials:
    "Building from GIT":

    Compilation of ICU4c-50.1 and OpenSSL 1.0.1c work fine. The problem is with QtWebKit and ANGLE i think. I try to configured with -opengl desktop -no-webkit but the second is not recognised (

    I have installed:

    bison 2.4.1

    .netFx 3 and 4 version

    DXSDK June 2010

    Flex 2.5.4a-1


    git 1.8.0

    gperf 3.0.1

    grep 2.5.4

    libiconv 1.9.2-1

    MSYS 1.0.11

    Python 3.3.0

    Ruby 1.9.3-p327

    Strawberry perl

    Windows SDK 7

    I compiled in Windows Command Line. The environment is:

    The same plus full config and set variable view in files:
    "Config file":
    "Set all variable":

    "Include variable":
    "Lib variable":

    Is any chance for me ?

    Try MSVC. It's free (as in beer) and it works. You can grab it from Windows SDK or Visual Studio.

    To prevent webkit from compiling, simply delete or rename qtwebkit folder. Remember no to use source code taken from Qt SDK or .tar.gz package on Windows. Use .zip or clone the git repo. -opengl desktop should be correct and should work. Remember you need to have OpenGL drivers installed.

  • Well, I try to compile myself, because I never doing that before, so I wanted learn it.
    I know that in Qt download site is pre-compiled library for MSVC with QtCreator.

    I'm searching for OpenGL drivers, but in home site it redirected me to AMD driver download with OpenCL ...

    But, I was downloaded Qt 5 from Git and try to configure them and the problem is that I getting the error ( can't find any files with *.o). Well I think it no make qmake (nothing is copied) ...

    Do you mean about symlinks ??

    I work little on this, and now i got no rule to make ioutils.o ...

  • Sorry, for post above.

    I downloaded MinGW with POSIX sjlj rev.5 and the compilation is working. With the previous compilator was something wrong with him.

    I found a topic: "This topic": and I was changed my Python to version 2.7.3 and now compilation goes further. But now the problem is with unresolve reference to procedures in objects file. I don’t know, maybe is the fault in that half project were compiled in Python 3.3.0 and other in 2.7.3 version ? But I was cleaned the QtWebKit module and I am builded it again.

    BTW I was compiled Qt 5 without QtWebKit, build new, empty project with MinGW32, and it works.
