Error while building Phonon plugins for QT4.8.4 for arm embedded platform

  • Hey there,

    I am trying to build QT 4.8.4 for my embedded arm platform , iMX6Q. I have an audio device connected to it.

    In order to run the Audio device i need the Phonon plugins.

    ./configure -embedded arm -xplatform /home/nishad/Experiment_1/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.8.4/mkspecs/qws/linux-arm-g++ -no-largefile -no-accessibility -verbose -little-endian -no-webkit -prefix /home/nishad/Experiment_1/new -no-qt3support -phonon -phonon-backend -glib -no-openssl -nomake examples -nomake demos

    Without glib and phonon it builds quite fine however
    It gives me an error saying it cannot find glib.h and cannot install glib due to functionality tests.

    Can someone suggest a solution to this. I need to play audio on my device. The drivers are working fine as i have tested them in Kernel Space.

    Can anyone also suggest an alternative?

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    You need to provide the arm version of the missing libraries. Adding -v to your configure line will show you more in details what fails.

    Hope it helps

  • ok,

    I will try it .

    Thanks for the reply.
