Qt 5.9.1 cross compilation error

  • I am trying to cross compile Qt 5.9.1 with qtwebengine. But during the ninja build, this error is showing up and compilation is terminated. By default the build is using -std=gnu++11. I tried to force the build to use -std=c++11. But it is not working.
    To be honest, i am yet to understand the difference between -std=c++11 and -std=gnu++11. Can anyone point out what i am doing wrong here ?
    Thank you for looking into it.

    AFAIK, gnu++11 is the C++11 standard plus GNU extensions. Note that you don't need to modify that as Qt 5 requires support for C++11 since 5.7.

  • @SGaist Thanks for the information. I can't really figure out why this is an error. My arm toolchain is based on gcc version 4.8.3. I believe this version supports c++11.
    In some other forums, it says round is defined from c++11 standard.
    Can i avoid this error if i skip angle ?
    I am building Qt for linux and i have cross compiled mesa libraries.

    Just realised you are using uClibc, I don't know how much of the standard it implements.

  • @SGaist You mean uClibc doesn't implement all the c++11 standard ?
    Edit :
    I went through this link to understand the difference.
    So basically when you are trying to compile a huge source like Qt, uClibc may not give you all the standards.

  • As @SGaist have said uClibc doesn't support c++11 standard as a whole. I have switched to another arm compiler based on Glibc and this error doesn't show up.
