Important: Please read the Qt Code of Conduct -

Compiling qt4.7.3, make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.

  • i follow the instruction of installation for x11 platform, no error report when i run ./configure, but make print the msg: "make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop."

    i can compile the apache, php successfully on the ubuntu 10.x

  • You should probably post the commands with the complete parameter list as you use.

  • I don't remember what the manual said about compiling instructions, but... have you executed qmake before running make? I think that command will generate the Makefile that is not being found...

  • i have installed, x11 dev package should be installed before run ./configure. i recommand to check the items on

    qmake is for the qt application, not for the qt installation.

  • I have to admit that I do not remember either :-(
    I have just followed the instruction as given. There was nothing special about it.

    I guess it is make under linux. But by checking I saw that the last version I bothered to compile was 4.7.2.

  • I'd try the following:

    • Unzip to new folder
    • Enter folder
    • run ./configure
    • run qmake
    • run make
    • wait
    • bneq $finished, wait //this one is just the freaky joke of the day :)


  • Hi myfeing

    out of curiosity did you use the .zip or the .tar.gz archive for installation?
