Compile to mingw x64 windows platform?
Which makespec do I use?
Where can I download qt everywhere 5.1.0? is it capable to compile to x64 windows + mingw platforms?
The source can be downloaded from "here":http://download.qt-project.org/official_releases/qt/5.1/5.1.0/single/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-5.1.0.zip
As platform you may have to use "win32-g++-4.6". Check out the different g++ versions there. Probably you neglect the compiler version spec "-4.6" by now. This would be "win32-g++" now.
This is the "closest wiki entry":http://qt-project.org/wiki/Building_Qt_Desktop_for_Windows_with_MinGW a bit dusty at the time. I used it for Qt 4.8.4 on Windows 7 64 bit and compiled also for 64 bits.
Yes, you have the capability to compile Qt 5.1.0 using 64-bit MinGW. If MinGW is the only compiler in your PATH, you don't need to specify a makespec. Qt will auto-detect it for you.
Or, you can download the pre-compiled packages here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/mingwbuilds/files/external-binary-packages/Qt-Builds/ (the maintainer of the MinGW-builds project already compiled it)
I see. Then I think I have to re-compile it because I also have VS2010 + QT on my computer.
Thanks both of you for your valuable information.
