Portable build



  • I built Qt sources statically as following but build path saved and not able to be portable!

    [code]configure -no-warnings-are-errors -qt-pcre -qt-libpng -ltcg -release -developer-build -static -qt-sql-sqlite -qt-zlib -qt-libjpeg -opengl desktop -nomake examples -nomake tests[/code]

    How can I get create a portable build of Qt?

    BTW,
    I'm using Windows 7
    I forced to add the following to each .pro:
    @QMAKE_LFLAGS += -static -static-libgcc -static-libstdc++ -lpthread@

    How can I get rid of that line?



  • I forgot to add error of building process:
    [code]mingw32-make[1]: *** No rule to make target 'C:/Qt/Qt5.1.0/5.1.0/Src/qtbase/lib/libQt5Widgets.a', needed by 'release\twst.exe'. Stop.
    makefile:34: recipe for target 'release' failed
    mingw32-make: *** [release] Error 2
    15:02:13: The process "C:\Qt\Qt5.1.0\Tools\mingw48_32\bin\mingw32-make.exe" exited with code 2.

    Hi,

    What do you mean by portable build ?



  • bq. What do you mean by portable build ?

    Doesn't related to specific path (absolute path). Note this line:

    @mingw32-make[1]: *** No rule to make target 'C:/Qt/Qt5.1.0/5.1.0/Src/qtbase/lib/libQt5Widgets.a', needed by 'release\twst.exe'. Stop.@

    it asks for C:/Qt/Qt5.1.0/5.1.0/Src/qtbase/lib/ where it should be relative path!

    BTW, The option -developer-build should fix this issue but it seems it doesn't


  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    Qt builds are not "portable" like that i.e. qmake has some paths hardcoded

    the -developer-build option does an "in-place" build that you can use, it means you don't need to "make install" after the build step and is generally used to develop Qt rather than when you use it.



  • bq. Qt builds are not “portable” like that i.e. qmake has some paths hardcoded

    Is there any way to configure a build with related paths?



  • BTW, the binary build of Qt itself is relative paths!


  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    Can you post an example of these relative paths ?

    Just tested the Qt 5.1 msvc binary install, it uses full path to the libraries and relative path to the includes



  • bq. Can you post an example of these relative paths ?

    Try to install Qt 5.1.1 through binary install of MinGW to specified path then move it to another place it will run perfectly!



  • Is there any progress guys?

    Why the official build of Qt works any where (portable) while when I build Qt by myself it needs absolute paths?

    UPDATE: I wonder do they use undocumented build options?



  • bump it once again hopeful someone find out how to Qt guys create portable builds!
