Building 5.8 from git / ignore objs

  • Hi

    I'm building 5.8 from git. I've got it built which is great, but there are loads of object files and build fluff, is there a prebuilt .gitignore to save me rolling my own ?

    Or a trick to build in a seperate folder to keep the build fluff away from the source ?

    @conradjones The trick is: out of source build. Just go to another directory and call configure from there:

    mkdir ~/qt_build
    cd ~/qt_build
    PATH_TO_QT_SOURCE/configure ....
    make install

  • cool thanks.
