Qt 5.7 compilation looping forever



  • Hi:

    I had been using Qt 5.6 for a bit, cross compiling it for arm-gnueabi. I just tried to switch to 5.7 with identical configure options. The configuration seems to complete just fine and I am invited to run make to start compilation.

    When I do this, it seems I get a screen full of this:
    ...
    ~/qt/build/qtbase/bin/qmake -qtconf ~/qt/build/qtbase/bin/qt.conf -o Makefile ../src.pro
    ~/qt/build/qtbase/bin/qmake -qtconf ~/qt/build/qtbase/bin/qt.conf -o Makefile ../src.pro
    ~/qt/build/qtbase/bin/qmake -qtconf ~/qt/build/qtbase/bin/qt.conf -o Makefile ../src.pro
    ~/qt/build/qtbase/bin/qmake -qtconf ~/qt/build/qtbase/bin/qt.conf -o Makefile ../src.pro
    ~/qt/build/qtbase/bin/qmake -qtconf ~/qt/build/qtbase/bin/qt.conf -o Makefile ../src.pro
    ...

    I am invoking the configure and the make from a build folder separate from the source. This has worked in the past. I have also tried configuring and invoking make directly from the source folder but I get the same result.

    It seems something is silently failing and it is stuck in a loop, invoking the same line over and over.

    Any suggestion on what could cause this?

  • Well I got this fixed. the clock on my computer was off and so it got make to loop forever.
    Fixed the issue by resetting the code, and updating the creation date of all the source files...
