Qt 5.3.0 Source Install Fails, OS X 10.10

  • This is pretty much expected given the stage of the betas, and given that Xcode no longer contains the 10.8 SDK that a lot of things build against but perhaps this readout will be useful to Qt. I have a feeling the issue is probably an upstream one and one that Apple will need to fix, but I could be wrong.

    type 'id<NSFileManagerDelegate>' with an lvalue of type

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    Since you are testing bleeding edge version of OS X and Xcode you'll also have to do the same with Qt i.e. build from git.

    You can also check the "bug report system": to see if it's something known.
