[solved] Installer certificate problem
need some help to install Qt from installer, please.
I do not know how to handle/ repair/ fix this problem.
Warning: QString::arg: Argument missing: SSL error: %s, The issuer certificate of a locally looked up certificate could not be found
Warning: QString::arg: Argument missing: SSL error: %s, The root CA certificate is not trusted for this purpose
seems only a Warning.
Is the Installer failing??
The setupwindow of the installer shows a a red message:
Network error while downloading target: '/tmp/qt_temp.XM5660'.
Error: SSL handshake failed:
now the quit option is the only possible.
some issue contacting the server.
I just ran the Maintenance Tool (on OS X) and it worked (but was slower than usual).
I used the Maintenance Tool for the last weeks without any problem.
Something changes and i have no idea what changed. So i removed all, downloaded a fresh online-installer and tried to get a fresh qt this way. Unfortunately i do not have any idea on certificates, SSL and similar stuff. Using OpenSuse 13.1 64

I have the same problem with online installer. Looks like issue with certificate on server.
How can I fix this.
thanks you for this info. I fear we can not do anything in this case and need to wait for attention of the Qt-team. Maybe we should consider to post this problem somewhere else (e.g. in "General and Desktop") , the attention here is rather poor. Anyway, good to know, that it is possible,
that I did not cause this problem myself, as usual :)
I also tried to download the offline installer "qt-opensource-linux-x64-5.4.1.run". This ends up with a empty repository list. After adding
"http://download.qt.io/online/qt5/linux/x64/online_repository/" in MaintenanceTool/ Settings i got the same error "ssl handshake failed"
You can try changing the mirror used with QtSdkRepoChooser
Hope it helps
i tried this already yesterday and it works nice to setup the alternative mirror. But the ssl handshake failure persists :(
Problem is, i do not even know how this certificate stuff works.
Do you understand the mechanismn ?
now it works again, but i do not really know why
As for OpenSuse 13.1 64, i installed additional packages (2nd and 3rd in the list below). 1st was on system already during the recent errors.
- ca-certificates - Utilities for system wide CA certificate installation
- ca-certificates-cacert - CAcert root certificates
- ca-certificates-mozilla - CA certificates for OpenSSL
Also used https://github.com/JKSH/QtSdkRepoChooser
and chose "qtmirror.ics.com". Then added the given path to
MaintenanceTool / Settings / User defined repositories and
started update. MaintenanceTool got updated and in a second run also qtcreator. Maybe it's not necessary to use the RepoChooser after installing the ca-certificates-cacert and ca-certificates-mozilla but I'm not sure. Hopel this helps
Another question: How to logout from this forum and how to enable email notifications on thread replies ?
Click on the profile icon (your avatar) and it's the last entry in the menu.
For the mail settings, go to your profile then settings
found the mail settings but not the logout (?)
click on the button with your avatar and the last entry in the menu is Logout
No, there is no "logout" or similar, I'm too stupid or too blind.
Yes, found it - not too blind but too stupid :)
