Cross-platform cross-compile Qt library for ARM Linux



  • Hello,

    I've installed Qt Creator and the Qt SDK and want to target ARM Linux from Windows, but have run into a snag I think. The built-in tool chains and Qt Versions do not seem to include ARM for Linux.

    I've done some reading, and am vaguely familiar with Mentor Graphics CodeSourcery CodeBench as a way of building a cross-compiled version of Qt library. Only vaguely familiar. I'd like to ascertain just how to go about this process.

    Anyone with some insight there just what is involved with that process? Once the Qt Versions are available, it sounds straightforward enough to hook up the rest of the process, projects, targets, build configurations, and so on.

    Regards,

    Michael

    In short: you have to install the cross-compiler and then compile Qt with it (I know it seems a bit lightweight but essentially that's that, unless you need some things like MySql).

    However, I would recommend a linux environment for that kind of development (Even a virtual machine is good for that).

    Hope it helps
