Cross Compiling Qt for ARM with OpenGL
After searching the web and going through tutorials I tried configuring qt 4.8.4 with OpenGL options:
This is my command
./configure -embedded arm -xplatform
-prefix /usr/local/qt_install -little-endian -no-webkit -nomake demos
-nomake examples -no-largefile -optimized-qmake -nomake tools
The error which i get is
@ You have not explicitly asked to use pkg-config and are cross-compiling. pkg-config will not be used to automatically query cflag/lib parameters for dependencies All the OpenGL ES functionality tests failed! You might need to modify the include and library search paths by editing QMAKE_INCDIR_OPENGL, QMAKE_LIBDIR_OPENGL and QMAKE_LIBS_OPENGL in /usr/local/qt-source-cross/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.8.4/mkspecs/qws/linux-arm-g++.
My qmake.conf file looks like this

For opengl libraries I installed Mesa using yum.
I don't know where I'm missing :(
Since you are cross-compiling you also need to get the equivalent libraries for ARM otherwise you would be trying to link ARM generated code with x86 libraries.
Thankx for the reply.
So you saying me I'v to cross compile mesa libraries with arm compiler and then configure qt?
and lets say even if I configured this libraries using source with arm compiler, but I won't be able to install it in my Fedora system.
So how will i link these libraries while configuring qt-src.
and moreover configuring mesa is a headache i guess, coz Im too lazy.
What kind of linux distribution do you run on your target ? If it's for example a Debian derivative your could always get their precompiled package
It is Debian.
But what if it is not Debian distro. I've to do all the steps.. like compiling mesa then configuring qt?
In that case you would rather use something like OpenEmbedded or the Yocto project that provides most of the things ready to build.
Nothing forbids you to go from scratch but that takes time and you would have to configure everything including mesa qt the base libraries etc...

I'm also getting same error... you got any success?
