Need help with Qt 5.4 and xcode 6.2 on OS X 0.10.2 Yosemite

  • Hi, I posted this to the General and Desktop forum but did not get any interest so I moved it to here. Can anyone here help me?

    I am using Qt 5.4 on OSX 10.10.2. When I build the release version I get the following error...

    /Applications/ No such file or directory.

    Xcode is in /Applications/ but the debug build works fine with that, How can I fix this and have both the debug and the release build work correctly?

    I am using Qt Creator 3.3.0 to build my apps.

    Any help would be very much appreciated.
    Thank you.

  • Make sure that 'xcode-select -p' return the right Xcode, or fix it with 'xcode-select -s'.

    I build the debug and release like this:

    export PATH=/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin
    ./configure -debug-and-release -prefix /usr/local/Qt-5.4.1 -nomake examples -sdk macosx10.9
    sudo make install

    worked like a charm on multiple machines.

  • Thank you very much for your reply,

    xcode-select -p returns /Applications/ which is correct.

    I am using qmake from Qt Creator to build my app the qmake call from QT Creator for the release version is...
    qmake /<my app pro file path> -r -spec macx-clang CONFIG+=x86_64

    This is the same as for the debug build (without CONFIG+=debug).

    The debug build does not throw the error mentioned in the first post. Any ideas as to what is going wrong here?

    Many thanks.

  • Hello again,

    I think the answer I need here is why does the wrong path get into my Release make file but not my Debug make file.?

    Does anyone have any ideas about this?

    Many thanks.

  • Sorry, I was under the impression that you were trying to build Qt itself.
    So the error is while building your code. All I can say is I never seen this and have no such error with Qt Creator 3.3.2.

  • Thanks anyway Sandy. This is a weird one to be sure.
