[solved] Qt on Solaris10

  • Can someone provide me a link or a detailed explanation of installation procedure of Qt Creator and other libraries(if required) on Solaris system. And also the links from where I can download all the required files.

    Thank You.

  • I downloaded qt-x11-opensource-src-4.4.3.tar.gz2

    untared it and then ran the configure file using : ./configure -platform solaris-g++

    then ran 'gmake'

    it build for a long time but finally ended up with the following error msg:

    In file included from ../../../../src/3rdparty/clucene/src/CLucene/analysis/standard/StandardAnalyzer.h:18,
    from ../../../../src/3rdparty/clucene/src/CLucene/analysis/standard/StandardAnalyzer.cpp:8:

    Thank you.

  • How about trying with a recent Qt first? Which toolchain are you using? Remember also to disable webkit / javascriptcore.

  • how do i disable them? whats tool chain? sorry, i m beginner.

    What is the error that I m getting(the one tht is mentioned above)?? How can I fix it?? . My solaris version is SunOS 5.10

    Thank you.

  • I am referring to this :

    At the configuring stage I get this error: Basic XLib functionality test failed!
    You might need to modify the include and library search paths by editing
    QMAKE_INCDIR_X11 and QMAKE_LIBDIR_X11 in /export/home/sol/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.6.2/mkspecs/solaris-cc-stlport.

    How can I fix this problem.

    Please help.

    Thank you.

  • Seems like configure script can't found your X11 libs and headers (may be you forgot install devel package for X11?) try find paths to them manually and edit file /export/home/sol/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.6.2/mkspecs/solaris-cc-stlport with found paths

  • I am working on OpenSolaris. There is X11 installed on my system. I tried editing the 'solaris-cc-stlport' file, (where I added the path to Xlib.h and X11.so)
    But still I m having the same problem.

  • Hi..,

    I got Qt installed successfully(though I did not get any mgs , I assumed its installed)
    The error was giving the right path in the solaris-cc-stlport' file.

    But now how do I run the examples?

    Please help.


  • if you build Qt with this configure line

    ./configure -platform solaris-cc-stlport -webkit -nomake demos -nomake examples

    examples didn't build with it. you can try build some examples manually.
    Just open example dir and try


  • I got it running.. Thank you..!!

  • If you've got it working, please be kind and add [Solved] to the title of the original post. Thanks!
