Qmake creating makefile with wrong libraries/include

  • Hello,

    I try to compile a qt project for embedded system.
    But when running qmake, I get wrong include directories and wrong libraries.
    If I set them manually in makefile, it compiles OK.

    Does anyone knows what should be done in order that qmake will create the Makefile with the correct include/libs ?

    Thank you,

    Are you running the qmake version that corresponds to the Qt framework built for your embedded system ?

  • Hi,

    Yes, I do.
    But I probably missed something in the process.
    This is the contents of qmake.conf, where/how should the lib and include directories should be configured ? Thx, Ran

    linux-TIarmv7-g++$ cat qmake.conf

    qmake configuration for building with arm-linux-g++


    modifications to g++.conf

    QMAKE_CFLAGS_RELEASE = -O3 -march=armv7-a -mtune=cortex-a8 -mfpu=neon -mfloat-abi=softfp
    QMAKE_CXXFLAGS_RELEASE = -O3 -march=armv7-a -mtune=cortex-a8 -mfpu=neon -mfloat-abi=softfp

    QMAKE_CC = arm-none-linux-gnueabi-gcc
    QMAKE_CXX = arm-none-linux-gnueabi-g++
    QMAKE_LINK = arm-none-linux-gnueabi-g++
    QMAKE_LINK_SHLIB = arm-none-linux-gnueabi-g++

    modifications to linux.conf

    QMAKE_AR = arm-none-linux-gnueabi-ar cqs

  • Hi,

    I also get a worning when executing qmake:
    ubuntu@ubuntu-laptop:/media/sdd/gui_app/sender$ /media/sdb/qt/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.8.1/bin/qmake -spec /media/sdb/qt/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.8.1/mkspecs/qws/linux-TIarmv7-g++
    Project WARNING: Your mkspec is including 'common/g++.conf', but the mkspecs have been refactored
    To fix this include 'common/gcc-base-.conf and 'common/g++-.conf' instead

    Do you think it might indicate why the include/libraries are wrong in makefile ?

    I would indeed correct that first.

    Also, unless you're locked to that version you should consider updating to the latest version of Qt
