    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    Did you reconfigure Qt the same way as the first time ?

  • Hi SGaist,

    Yes, i reconfigure Qt the same way as the first time follow AndrewTaneGlen's instruction in this forum https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/beagleboard/RYmfcZmIhbA.

    It worked well in the first time. May be I have mistake somewhere.

    Thank for your support

    Did you restart configure from a clean state ?

  • Hi SGaist,

    yes, i delete old source file, untar new source and install follow instruction. I also delete angstrom, reinstall ubuntu two times. But it still does not work.

    Thanks for your support

    What configure options did you use ?

  • Hi SGaist,

    I did
    @ ./configure -v -opensource -confirm-license -xplatform qws/linux-arm-gnueabi-g++ -embedded arm -little-endian -prefix /opt/qt-arm -no-cups -no-accessibility -reduce-relocations -no-nas-sound -no-sm -no-nis -qt-libjpeg -qt-libpng -qt-zlib -no-sql-ibase -no-sql-mysql -no-sql-odbc -no-sql-psql -no-sql-sqlite -no-sql-sqlite2 -no-pch -no-dbus -no-glib -no-phonon -no-phonon-backend -no-webkit -no-multimedia -no-audio-backend -no-qt3support -nomake docs -nomake translations -exceptions -no-fast@

    and i am sure that enviroment file has run already, when i type arm-angstrom- and tab press, the output is

    about error, it happens when i use ./configure command.

    can you run it with -v to see if you have some additional information about the failure ?

  • Hi SGaist,

    I have use configure with -v and detect that it configure to generate qmake with arm-linux-gnueabi-g++. The problem is here, it has compile with g++ beacause qmake has to run on linux PC enviroment.

    Enviroment-setup (in usr/angstrom/local/) caused this error when i run it first and then do ./configure command, may be some flag or parameter effect to build configure.

    It works well now. Thank you very much
    Best regard,

    You're welcome !

    Don't forget to keep that noted somewhere in case you have to do the reinstallation ;)

    Happy coding !

  • Hello expertises,

    I need help to install cross compile for QT on my host PC:

    Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 32bits, VMware workstation on Windows 8.1.

    Target-> Beaglebone Black angstrom kernel 3.8.

    Please any help...

  • Hi weza_hss,

    I did follow AndrewTaneGlen's instructions in this site https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/beagleboard/RYmfcZmIhbA

    You should try it. Everything will be fine.

    ps: It will be better if you say the problem you faced

    Happy codding!
