WebKit building ANGLE on Linux?

  • I am trying to build Qt 5.2 on Linux (Debian 6) and it stopped when building QtWebKit:
    @flex --noline --nounistd --outfile=generated/glslang_lex.cpp /.../qt5/qtwebkit/Source/ThirdParty/ANGLE/src/compiler/glslang.l
    flex: unknown flag '-'. For usage, try
    flex --help

    Is normal to build ANGLE, which I thought is Windows-only, on Linux? If so, how can I fix this? Thanks.

    No, I don't think this should be happening.

  • I'm also having the same problem on Linux (ubuntu 14.04) compiling qt 5.1.1.

    The error is:

    generated/glslang_tab.cpp: In function ‘int yyparse(TParseContext*)’:
    generated/glslang_tab.cpp:1804:30: error: too few arguments to function ‘int yylex(YYSTYPE*, void*)’
    yychar = yylex (&yylval);
    generated/glslang_tab.cpp:279:12: note: declared here
    extern int yylex(YYSTYPE* yylval_param, void* yyscanner);

    If possible, please update to Qt 5.3.1.

  • At least on my project I can't. However I commented a few lines, and I'm back at compiling. I hope it will work OK.

    The diff is bellow:


    That didn't work well, because a bit further it needed the libANGLE.a .
    I will try to search a bit more and come up with a solution.
