Building Qt 5.4 beta for new board



  • I am building the Qt 5.4 beta for a new ARM board.

    I do not have any qmake.conf or qplatformdefs.h in ..../qtbase/mkspecs.devices/...
    The nearest board to our board is the beagleboard (our board is based on a new TI omap5 ARM soc). WE do have a TI GLSDK yocto which allows us to build the Qt 4.8, and 5.1 as well as another system which builds 5.2.1.

    I am thinking of making my own qmake.conf or qplatformdefs.h based on information from the 5.4 beaglebaord: ~/armqt5.4/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-5.4.0-beta/qtbase/mkspecs/devices/linux-beagleboard-g++ and information gleaned from TIs GLSDK for my board.

    Am I going about this the right way?

    Hi,

    The simplest is to copy linux-beagleboard-g++ to linux-yourboard-g++ and modify it until works with your device. Depending on how your board is public/used you could even consider submitting your device specs to the Qt project



  • It is not public yet - everything is under NDA. But thanks for the advice. Will do that.
