Qt 5.4.1 Minimal Build for PyQt4 - 32 bit on Mac 10.10???

  • I am trying to compile Qt 5.4.1 for 32-bit on Mac 10.10. I only need 32-bit Qt for PyQt4 for a GUI app I am writing in Python. Currently I only use QtGui and QtCore.

    My ./configure options are as follows:

    ./configure -release -platform macx-clang-32 -opensource -confirm-license

    I deleted the qtwebkit, qtwebengine, qtwebkit-examples and qtwebchannel directories from the src folder before running the configure script, however the install is over 2GB and still takes quite a while using make -j8 on a new Mac Pro (8-core, 64GB RAM).

    How can I speed this up? I bet I still don't need a lot of the libraries, but when deleting more of the larger directories, the make then fails...

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    If you are only using core and gui then just build qtbase.

    You can add

    -nomake tests -nomake examples

    to speed things up

    Hope it helps
