Qt and VxWorks

  • Hello All,

    Currently I am looking into using Qt with VxWorks to use on an embedded platform (PPC).

    I followed the platform notes for VxWorks on how to configure and build Qt.

    ./configure -xplatform unsupported/vxworks-simpentium-g++ -embedded vxworks -exceptions -no-gfx-linuxfb -no-mouse-linuxtp -no-mouse-pc -no-kbd-tty
    and then make.

    First tried the simpentium target so that I know it works in my environment. Only I am getting some compilation errors which I can not trace back to something. It reports an error about missing mBlkHdr and other stuff not correct.

    Errors with Qt version 4.6.3:
    Compiling file /src/gui/image/qpixmapfilter.cpp
    ../../include/QtGui/private/../../../src/gui/text/qfontengineglyphcache_p.h:91: error: expected ';' before '.' token
    ../../include/QtGui/private/../../../src/gui/text/qfontengineglyphcache_p.h: In constructor 'QFontEngineGlyphCache::QFontEngineGlyphCache(const QTransform&, QFontEngineGlyphCache::Type)':
    ../../include/QtGui/private/../../../src/gui/text/qfontengineglyphcache_p.h:84: error: class 'QFontEngineGlyphCache' does not have any field named 'mBlkHdr'
    ../../include/QtGui/private/../../../src/gui/text/qfontengineglyphcache_p.h:84: error: expected (' before '.' token ../../include/QtGui/private/../../../src/gui/text/qfontengineglyphcache_p.h:84: error: expected{' before '.' token
    ../../include/QtGui/private/../../../src/gui/text/qfontengineglyphcache_p.h: At global scope:
    ../../include/QtGui/private/../../../src/gui/text/qfontengineglyphcache_p.h:84: warning: unused parameter 'type'
    ../../include/QtGui/private/../../../src/gui/text/qfontengineglyphcache_p.h: In member function 'QFontEngineGlyphCache::Type QFontEngineGlyphCache::cacheType() const':
    ../../include/QtGui/private/../../../src/gui/text/qfontengineglyphcache_p.h:88: error: 'mBlkHdr' was not declared in this scope
    I am using VxWorks 6.8 on Linux (Ubuntu 10.10). And as source files qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.6.3.tar.gz downloaded from the ftp archive.

    So my questions are:

    • Did I miss something to configure?
    • Does someone know on with version of Qt (or branch) this VxWorks port was done?
    • Does the mBlkHdr error say something to someone?
    • Are there other people who did managed to configure and build Qt for VxWorks?

    Thanks for your time and help!

    Best regards,

  • Hi,

    could be that the definition of m_data in \target\h\net\mbuf.h is causing the error width mBlkHdr


  • Hi,

    The existing VxWorks port is not complete. We are working with Wind River to bring a greatly improved port available soon.

  • Hi Antoine,

    As per the below link, QT 4.8.3 has the full support for VxWorks.
    But I could not find from where we can get it downloaded?

    Hi Tuukka,
    Can you please let me know from where I can get QT 4.8.3(for VxWorks) libraries or SDK downloaded? The QT website does not mention about the VxWorks. I would be working soon on QT with VxWorks.

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks and Regards,
    Parag Rudrawar
