Error when trying to compile Qt 5.0.2 from source with MinGW-32

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    What about using the 5.0.2 MinGW package here ?

    What's the problem with using a more recent version of Qt ?



  • I wanted to use Qt 5.0.2, because the application I am compiling seems to have some issues with newer Qt versions, but I want to have this bug fixed, so I want to compile Qt 5.0.2 from source and apply the fix on my own. Is it possible for me to compile Qt 5.0.2 from source so that it has the same funcionality as the 5.0.2 MinGW package?

    What issues do you have ? Even with the newly released 5.6.0 ?

    Yes you can.



  • The application is is also using QtQuick 1 and in the QML window somehow images aren't replaced appropiately, but they are overlapping. This only happens with post Qt 5.0.2 versions and works fine with Qt 5.0.2. I have almost no Qt experience, so I have no idea why this is happening, so I think that just building Qt from source and applying the mentioned bugfix on my own is the best way to fix all of the problems.



  • Because I didn't get another response after 3 weeks I am asking again:
    Can someone give me a step-by-step instruction of how to compile Qt 5.0.2 from source with MinGW-32 so that it has the same functionality as the official 5.0.2 MinGW package?
    Thanks in advance

    You can find instructions at https://wiki.qt.io/Building_Qt_5_from_Git

    Replace git checkout v5.5.0 with git checkout v5.0.2
