[Solved] Cross-compilation Issue



  • Hi everyone,

    I am trying to get up and running with Qt and have installed Creator 5.1.1 for Windows 8.1 and Ubuntu 12.04 so far (want to install on mac os x as well). I have decided to run Ubuntu as a VM on the Windows machine that I am developing on. So I have written a small HelloWorld app on Windows and tried to open the same project on Linux and build it. I am getting an error saying that the project has a modification time in the future and it refuses to build.

    Is this a common problem or is there something else I should be doing?

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    Check the clock of your virtual machine and ensure it's the same as your main machine



  • Hey,

    Thanks for replying. With great difficulty, I have manually synchronisd the clock on the host machine and the VM (kind of a ridiculous thing to have to do :P). It didn't make any difference at all. I restarted the host machine and VM a few times to see if it made a difference. The actual number that it is reporting is 2e+04s.

    I said before that it was an error but it is actually a warning but qmake gets in a loop and reports it over and over again which stops it from building.

    Are you sure both clock follow the same time zone ?

    Anyway you can try to "touch" all files once, then they should be in a better "time state"

    Hmmmm... touching them all seemed to work :) Now to deal with my other 50 million warnings. I will probably be a regular poster here :P

    Thanks for your help!
