Intallling QT on BeagleBone Black, "apt-get update" problem

  • Hello to everyone,

    I am currently trying to show a QT application program on my BeagleBone Black using a LCD cape. The BBB runs with Debian and has an armv7l architecture. I have QT Creator 3.3.1 (open source) based on QT 5.4.1(MVSC 2010, 32 bit) installed in my Windows 7 64 bits Computer (I can also design the program in a Linux Ubuntu virtual machine moounted by VirtualBox if needed).

    I saw a couple of videos on how to install QT on the BeagleBone and most of them install the "qt4-embedded" update by typing "apt-get" on the command line. My problem here is that I am using a Network that has a Proxy (or something like that) that doesn't let me use the command "apt-get update". I suppose that, because of this Proxy, I can not connect with the server pages of the BeagleBone and therefore can not get the updates. Is there any other way of installing the QT on the BeagleBone apart from the mentioned method?

    Thanks a lot to anyone who can help me out with this problem, and I wish you a nice day.

    Thanks for the reply!

    Can I use a Angstrom toolchain, althought I have Debian running on my BeagleBone Black? in another publication, someone recommended me this toolchain: http://gnutoolchains.com/beaglebone/
    Should I just use that one instead of the angstrom one?
