    What version of gcc are you using to build Qt ?

  • Hi,

    We are using gcc-4.6.2 version.

  • Moderators

    @DivyaMuthyala It looks like you have a dirty Qt environment. Some objects were compiled with a different gcc.

    I would do a make clean and then reconfigure and remake.

  • Hi,

    I have done what you have said, still I am facing same issue.

  • Moderators

    @DivyaMuthyala Can you post the full build log or at least the part with the errors... That mangling thing is usually just a warning.

  • Hi,

    Now I am facing with following error:

    /u01/rootfs/usr/lib/libxcb-xkb.a: could not read symbols: File format not recognized

    I am configuring by using following:

  • @DivyaMuthyala

    what arm device do u use?

  • Hi,

    We are using linux based IMx6 SoloLite board.

  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    @DivyaMuthyala What does "file /u01/rootfs/usr/lib/libxcb-xkb.a" say?

  • Moderators

    @DivyaMuthyala You are definitely mixing binaries. I was suspicious before but I'm positive now with that last error.

    I'll wait and see what your response with the output of the file command is.

  • Hi,

    Thanks for your support.

    Now I am able to configure successfully,but now I am facing issue during compilation.
    When I am trying to compile sample application its throwing a following error.

    "fatal error: QApplication: No such file or directory"

    I am adding in .pro file QT +=widgets, but still I am facing issue.
    Can you please help me.
    Thanks in advance.

    Did you re-run qmake after adding that ?

  • Yes,I have run qmake and make

  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    Are you sure you did install your custom Qt properly ?

  • Hi,

    I have missed some library soft linking .
    I Configured it again and its working fine now.

    Thankyou for your support.
