Qt 5.4.0 iOS Code Signing Error while compiling (Qt Source)

  • Hi,

    I hope someone can help me with this issue I have. I am trying to compile the Qt 5.4.0 Beta Source on a Mac OS X 10.9.4 with XCode 5.1.1 installed and I always get the same Build Error.

    I used this configuration:

    @./configure -opensource -xplatform macx-ios-clang -release -sdk iphoneos -nomake tools -nomake examples -nomake tests@

    I always end up with this error message while trying to 'make':

    @Check dependencies
    Code Sign error: No matching provisioning profiles found: No provisioning profiles with a valid signing identity (i.e. certificate and private key pair) were found.


    The following build commands failed:
    Check dependencies
    (1 failure)
    make[4]: *** [iphoneos-release-install] Error 65
    make[3]: *** [iphoneos-install] Error 2
    make[2]: *** [sub-xmlpatterns-install_subtargets] Error 2
    make[1]: *** [sub-tools-install_subtargets] Error 2
    make: *** [module-qtxmlpatterns-install_subtargets] Error 2@

    After searching I tried a lot, but the only information that helped me finishing 'make' was:


    So I exported the developer identity and it successfully finished 'make'. Now I tried 'sudo make install' and it's stuck with the same error message you can see above. I also tried Qt 5.3.0 Source Release and Qt 5.4.0 Source Alpha but I always end up with the same error message.

    I appreciate any help.


  • Does someone has any idea why this error is showing up?

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    Good question, I can currently only offer a workaround: install your custom built Qt in a path where you have write access.

  • Thank you SGaist. I have write access to the folder where Qt is located. The message appears about 3 to 4 minutes after the start of 'sudo make install' so i think if it has no write access this message would show up earlier.

    Then why are you calling make install with sudo if you already have write access to the folder where you want to install Qt ?
