Qt 5.8 produces different Qt Version on Embedded platform

  • I am trying to compile Qt Creator for the Odroid XU4 using this tutorial
    I can follow it through to the building Qt-Creator however when I try to compile it, the following response is given from the terminal:

    odroid@odroid:~/Documents/qt-creator-build$ qmake -r ../qt-creator/
    Project MESSAGE: Cannot build Qt Creator with Qt version 5.5.1.
    Project ERROR: Use at least Qt 5.6.0.

    Checking the qmake -v gives:
    QMake version 3.0
    Using Qt version 5.5.1 in /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf

    I have installed qtchooser (and put QT_SELECT=5 in the /.bashrc), apt-get installed qt5-qmake however I am not sure what else to do?
    OS is Ubuntu MATE 16.04

    Thanks in advance!

    Where did you install your self-built Qt 5.8 ?

    If you want to ensure that you are using the exact version of you'd like, just call qmake with the full path.

  • I installed Qt to /mnt/Odroid/build/
    so would I just qmake to this location? -> qmake /mnt/Odroid/build/qt5/ (?)

    No call /mnt/Odroid/build/qt5/qtbase/bin/qmake or wherever your self-built qmake landed.
