Problem building QT 4.8.4 for am335x (ARM Cortex A8)

  • Goodmorning to all,

    I hope to not start a new discussion with previous discussed matters but I've searched a lot wihtout answer.
    I'm trying to build qt:

    This is my qmake.conf

    #qmake configuration for building with arm-linux-gnueabihf-g++


    #modifications to g++.conf
    QMAKE_CC = arm-linux-gnueabihf-gcc
    QMAKE_CXX = arm-linux-gnueabihf-g++
    QMAKE_LINK = arm-linux-gnueabihf-g++
    QMAKE_LINK_SHLIB = arm-linux-gnueabihf-g++

    #modifications to linux.conf
    QMAKE_AR = arm-linux-gnueabihf-ar cqs
    QMAKE_OBJCOPY = arm-linux-gnueabihf-objcopy
    QMAKE_STRIP = arm-linux-gnueabihf-strip


    and I putted it in /qws/linux-arm-gnueabihf-g++

    my configure command is:

    ./configure -xplatform /qws/linux-arm-gnueabihf-g++ -opensource -confirm-license -static -little-endian -host-little-endian -fast -arch arm

    Configuration go fast and smooth, but when I run "make" I get

    make[1]: ingresso nella directory "/home/giuseppe/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.8.4/src/gui"
    /home/giuseppe/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.8.4/bin/uic dialogs/qprintsettingsoutput.ui -o .uic/release-shared/ui_qprintsettingsoutput.h
    make[1]: /home/giuseppe/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.8.4/bin/uic: comand not found
    make[1]: *** [.uic/release-shared/ui_qprintsettingsoutput.h] Error 127
    make[1]: uscita dalla directory "/home/giuseppe/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.8.4/src/gui"
    make: *** [sub-gui-make_default-ordered] Error 2

    I've tryed multiple ./configure combination but I get always this error.
    Any ideas?

    Thanks Giuseppe

    IIRC you do not set arch but embedded arm, and i think you also don't need to set the endian options in your case.

    Hope it helps

  • Thanks for the repy SGaist,

    When I run configure without the endian options, it give me an error and says "choose between little endian and bing endian".
    I try with -embedded arm (the reason why I'm rebuilding qt it is because the touchscreen don't work properly).

  • Hi
    I have the same problem. Did you get a solution?


  • Yes.. I ended using buildroot to build qt.. worked at the first time.
