Building Qt 5.3.0 ios with SSL

  • Hi everybody,

    I have a qt5.2.1 version compiled successfully with ssl support but because of the new features of 5.3 I need to compile this with support for SSL, I tried to with these commands:

    OPENSSL_LIBS='-L/Users/devUser/openssl_IOS/lib -lssl -lcrypto' ./configure -openssl-linked -developer-build -opensource -nomake examples -nomake tests -xplatform macx-ios-clang -confirm-license -platform macx-clang

    OPENSSL_LIBS='-L/Users/devUser/openssl_IOS/lib -lssl -lcrypto' ./configure -openssl-linked -developer-build -opensource -nomake examples -nomake tests -xplatform macx-ios-clang -confirm-license -debug-and-release -skip qtwebkit -skip qtserialport -skip qtwebkit-examples -no-warnings-are-errors

    always I get the error

    ndefined symbols for architecture armv7:
    "std::ios_base::Init::~Init()", referenced from:

    after this I tried to find out the reason and I believe that the problem is related to C++11 support. so I tried both command above adding "-c++11" this doesnt work.

    after this, I tried to install the precompiled packed. When I try to compile the project with this it complains as is expected about QSslSockets and QSslerror.

    I tried everything for 2 days and it did not works.

    So please if somebody has a clue I will be very gratefull

    Do you already have a statically built OpenSSL for ARM ?

  • yes, It is the same that I used to compiled the QT 5.2.1

  • I tried it again with these command, but this time from git:
    git clone git:// qt5
    cd qt5
    git checkout stable

    perl init-repository --no-webkit

    OPENSSL_LIBS='-L/Users/DevUser/openssl_IOS/lib -lssl -lcrypto' ./configure -openssl-linked -developer-build -opensource -nomake examples -nomake tests -xplatform macx-ios-clang -confirm-license -debug-and-release -skip qtwebkit -skip qtserialport -skip qtwebkit-examples -no-warnings-are-errors -c++11 -platform macx-clang

    make -j4

    It compiles succesfully but :

    The result when i compile the project:

    Undefined symbols for architecture armv7:

    , it still didnt work :(

  • just I want to highligh that in the version 5.2.1 it works with no problem

  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    It seems that it's you are missing a symbol from the stdc++ library

  • Thanks SGaist, that was also my guess, can you give me any suggestion or do you see any mistake?

  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    Wait, I may have missed something. Are you saying that your project fails to build with your custom version of Qt 5.3 ?

  • yes, exactly.

    When I try to compile my project with any of the many different customs versions I have built of 5.3.0 it fails as you can see above.

    But with a version 5.2.1 that I also built before it works.

  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    Just to rule out the obvious, did you rebuild your project from scratch ?

  • yes, after building I tried to make clean and recompile, also, erase the building folder of my project even try to compile from Xcode.

    Exact the same behavior

  • SGaist did you do this operation before?
    or do you know where should I start looking because at this moment I am really lost

  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    I've not yet built 5.3 completely from scratch (I've updated it regularly from git so it might be something subtle).

    What I'm wondering is where do you the wrong lib since AFAIK, the mkspecs haven't changed.

    I'll do a clean build later

  • SGaist. Any advance on this?

  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    The error you are getting is not a bug, you have c++11 activated, this means that you have to use libc++ and you can't mix it with libstdc++.

  • So. The answer should be -no-c++11.

  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    Or (if it is a possibility) rebuild your dependencies to also use libc++

  • Thanks very much SGaist. Sadly recompile the libraries is not in the menu. So I will disable the c++11. And i will try it on monday.
