5.3 attempts to compile stuff it shouldn't

  • When trying to build Qt 5.3 with VS 2012, it attempts (and fails) to build QOpenGLContext despite being configured with -no-opengl. This shouldn't happen.

    Any way one can possibly build this without a myriad of different errors, wasting hours upon hours without all the bloat that nobody really needs?

    [code]-debug-and-release -opensource -c++11 -shared -nomake examples -nomake tests -no-compile-examples -qt-sql-sqlite -no-opengl -no-openvg -no-neon -no-evdev -largefile -no-vcproj -plugin-manifests -no-qmake -dont-process -no-dbus -no-wmf-backend -no-qml-debug -no-directwrite -no-direct2d -no-style-windowsxp -qt-style-windowsvista -native-gestures -mp

    It also doesn't build at all:

    • without -no-directwrite
    • with qt-sql-sqlite (Fails with Linker errors about Symbols not being present for QSQLiteSomething)
    • with -no-opengl as mentioned above

    And I didn't even get started about OpenSSL or god-forbid Webkit (which, in it's Qt Implementation, is buggy and slow as hell in the first place)

    Also, any way to build without QtScript and QML Crap?

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    For that question you should rather write to the interest mailing list. You'll find Qt's developers/maintainers there (this forum is more user oriented) Don't forget to subscribe first.
