Building a 32bit application on a 64bit machine.
I'm getting close.
I'm using mkspec linux-g++-32, and the CFLAGS, CXXFLAGS and LFLAGS all have -m32 in them and all of the object files are compiled into 32 bit.
But the linker is still using -L/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu and not -L/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu and I can not seem to find out how to fix it. Here is a copy of the linker line:
*g++ -m32 -o Test2 main.o -L/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu -L/usr/share/jps-audioproc-third-party/boost/lib -lboost_program_options -lboost_system -lboost_thread -L/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu -lQtCore -lpthread *
I have tried to remove the x86_64 directory by: LIBS -= -L/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu but that did not work.
I tried changing the Projects->Build Settings->Build Environment->LD_LIBRARY_PATH to /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu. But that did not help.
The error I get is a sequence of errors in the link process like this one:
/usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libpthread.so when searching for -lpthread
and here is a copy of my .pro file.

I got around the problem by installing a 32-bit virtual machine on my 64-bit machine. If you find a better way, I'm very interested :).
If I go into the make file and change:
in the LIBS line it all works!!
Of course next time qmake runs it is reverted.
But, I can't find out where qmake gets that variable.
This can't be the right way to fix this, but....
In Projects->Build Settings->Build Steps between the qmake and make steps I added a new step that does this:
sed -i 's|-L/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu|-L/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu|' Makefile
to change the location of the libraries. And it works now.
come-on-people...there must be a correct way.

May I ask how you got 32bit Qt libraries on your 64bit machine. And have you checke the makespec system?
I installed the 32 bit libraries in Ubuntu by running this:
@sudo apt-get install ia32-libs@
And yes I changed the makespec to 32 bit by putting this line in the *.pro file:
But I also changed Projects->Build Settings->Build Steps->qmake->Additional arguments to:
@ -spec linux-g++-32@
