Building Qt 5.8 from git with prop codecs: Qmake unknown feature - mirclient



  • Hello,

    I want to build qt 5.8 with webengine proprietary codecs enabled. This is a follow-up to my problems with 5.7, which I could not yet to work on the target machine. Therefore I am going to switch directly over to 5.8 as it has gone final.

    This are my commands:

    git clone https://code.qt.io/qt/qt5.git  
    cd qt5
    git checkout 5.8
    perl init-repository
    ./configure -prefix "/opt/Qt/5.8/gcc_64" -opensource -nomake examples -nomake tests -release
    cd qtwebengine
     ../qtbase/bin/qmake WEBENGINE_CONFIG+=use_proprietary_codecs
    

    However, this is the error I get when calling qmake:
    Unknown feature: mirclient

    What is mirclient (I didnt get that with 5.7 which I`ve compiled in the same way) ?

    Is the order of commands correct ? What is the proper way of commands to build 5.8 from git, I am not coming behind :-/

    Thank you !
