Configure.exe does not support -qpa option in Qt 4.8 preview



  • I downloaded the Qt 4.8 preview to try the new platform abstraction (lighthouse) feature. I'm trying to build on Windows (and cross-compile for another platform) but configure.exe reports that -qpa is an "unknown option". If I build on Linux, the configure shell script recognizes -qpa as a valid option.

    Is this a known limitation of configure.exe or a bug? Does anyone know of a workaround so I can configure Qt 4.8 on Windows with qpa support?



  • Reported as "QTBUG-20819":https://bugreports.qt.nokia.com/browse/QTBUG-20819 in case anyone cares.

    We do care! Thanks for the bug report and helping making Qt even better!



  • The reason should be that
    qpa plugin for windows platform does not yet exist

    As indicated in the bug I created, I don't want to use a Windows qpa plugin. I want to cross-compile on Windows for another platform that does have a valid qpa plugin.

    Does anyone know where the source for configure.exe lives? I'd be interested to see if I could fix the problem myself using the configure shell script as a reference.
