Is it possible to build Qt5 with QT_COORD_TYPE=double for Android ARM? (SOLVED)

  • Trying to build Qt5 from sources with qreal as double instead of float for ARM platform.

    I've got an error:

    Any ideas? Thanks.

  • I've tried to configure and build Qt with qreal as double. But got an compilation error.
    Is someone used QT_COORD_TYPE=double before?

  • welcome to devnet

    You need to wait probably a bit more time for answers. -"See your other post on basically the same topic."-
    Android version is already used, but the contributions are still a bit slow in the forum.

    [edit, decided to merge the posts later, koahnig]

  • The problem is solved.
    I don't know is it correct way, but I've made changes in qdrawhelper_p.h and it works for me now.

    Should I report this bug?

  • Looks like it is a good idea to search for a bug report on "JIRA":
    Especially when you have found a workaround you can add to existing bug reports. If there is no report filed, file a new one.

  • The bug was reported on JIRA. Hope that fix will be included in next release.
