Qt 5.11 for Beaglebone Black



  • I am using Beaglebone Black Rev C with BB-View CapeManager as follow:

    1/ Latest kernel version "Linux arm 4.15.0-bone2.1 #1 Tue Jan 30 11:48:09 GMT 2018 armv7l armv7l armv7l GNU/Linux"

    2/ BBB fire up correctly and screen work correctly

    3/ Build Qt-everywhere package 5.11 fro io.qtdownload site

    4/ The Qt for ARM build successfully and deployed across Beaglbone black

    5/ A small test program developed on x86_64bit development Machine, targeted for an ARM.

    6/ I am using cross-compiler toolchain "arm-linux-gnueabihf-gcc-7.2.1-*"

    7/ Binary program definitely generating executable for an ARM cpu

    8/ After deployment of the binary test program on BBB machine.An error!

    9/ "./test: /lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.25' not found (required by /usr/local/qt5.11/lib/libQt5Core.so.5)"

    0/ I ran on BBB "sudo ldconfig -v

    a/ The lib 'ib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/libc.so.6' exists in the given path

    b/ After executing command objdump -p test following result I get

    ubuntu@arm:~$ objdump -p test

    c/ On Beaglebonblack I am using rootfs UBUNTU 16.04

    model name  : ARMv7 Processor rev 2 (v7l)
    
    No LSB modules are available.
    Distributor ID: Ubuntu
    Description:    Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS
    Release:    16.04
    Codename:   xenial
    

    d/ I only have a barebone Kernel + rootfs on BB Black board.

    Your help, advise tip(s) or any info on this problem will be greatly appreciated. Thank you,


  • Moderators

    I'd say your sysroot is bad. It is building against a newer version of GLIBC than your target board contains.

    I recommend using the sysroot directly from your BBB. See, for example, how this wiki does it: https://wiki.qt.io/RaspberryPi2EGLFS



  • Hello Sierdzio,

    I was replicating I mean following the URL for BBB build procedure from following.
    https://wiki.qt.io/BeagleBone_Black_Beginners_Guide
    I replicated to its every line as advised.
    This simply reflects that the information furnished on this wiki page either incorrect or outdated.
    I am beginning to suspect that the compiler I used from Linaro i.e linux-arm-linaro-7.2.1-gnueabihf (hard float) is a culprit? As I have to modify least two files as follow:

    a) ..qtbase/mkspecs/devices/linux-beagleboard-g++/qmake/qmake.conf

    #COMPILER_FLAGS      = -march=armv7-a -mtune=cortex-a8 -mfpu=neon -mthumb
    COMPILER_FLAGS       = -mfloat-abi=hard
    

    AND ...
    b) qtbase/mkspecs/linux-arm-gnueabi-g++/qmake.conf

    # modifications to g++.conf
    QMAKE_CC                = arm-linux-gnueabihf-gcc
    QMAKE_CXX               = arm-linux-gnueabihf-g++
    QMAKE_LINK              = arm-linux-gnueabihf-g++
    QMAKE_LINK_SHLIB        = arm-linux-gnueabihf-g++
    # modifications to linux.conf
    QMAKE_AR                        = arm-linux-gnueabihf-ar cqs
    QMAKE_OBJCOPY           = arm-linux-gnueabihf-objcopy
    QMAKE_NM                     = arm-linux-gnueabihf-nm -P
    QMAKE_STRIP                = arm-linux-gnueabihf-strip
    

    for an inclusion of compiler correct syntax for make.

    I wonder what is your comment on this?
    You mentioned 'sysroot is bad it is building against a newer version of GLIBC that your target board contains.'

    I build target board BBB kernel with latest version 4.15.0-bone2.1 from
    git clone https://github.com/RobertCNelson/bb-kernel

    Thank you,

    Well, you can either downgrade the toolchain or upgrade the sysroot ;-) Your choice. Or indeed some config is off but I doubt it.

    I build target board BBB kernel with latest version 4.15.0-bone2.1 from

    This is irrelevant. You get the GLIBC error because your binary was compiled using higher GLIBC version than your BBB has - and thus the ABI does not match.

    This simply reflects that the information furnished on this wiki page either incorrect or outdated.

    It's outdated, yes. But also, you are not following it closely if you compile with GCC 7.2 while the wiki mentions 4.9 ;-) Once you resolve the problems you're having, please consider updating the wiki.

    I think the GCC is too new for given OS image (Debian Jessie is an old beast).



  • Hi Sierdzio,

    Since your last post, I changed the arm toolchain currently I am using gcc-linaro-4.9/bin/arm-linux-gnueabi-*
    to compile and my configure line read as follow:
    ./configure -v -opensource -confirm-license -prefix /usr/local/qt5.11 -device linux-beagleboard-g++ -device-option CROSS_COMPILE=$HOME/gcc-linaro-4.9/bin/arm-linux-gnueabi- -qt-libpng -qt-libjpeg -release -qpa eglfs -opengl es2 -no-gcc-sysroot

    But I am consistently getting following an error message:

  • Moderators

    You can disable the gold linker by passing -no-use-gold-linker to Qt's configure script.



  • @sierdzio said in Qt 5.11 for Beaglebone Black:

    -no-use-gold-linker

    Hi Serdzio,

    I used my configure script syntax as you prescribed, as follow

    ./configure -v -opensource -confirm-license -prefix /usr/local/qt5.11 -device linux-beagleboard-g++ -device-option CROSS_COMPILE=$HOME/gcc-linaro-4.9/bin/arm-linux-gnueabi- -qt-libpng -qt-libjpeg -qpa eglfs -opengl es2 -no-gcc-sysroot -release -no-use-gold-linker
    

    But error seems to be still creeping in I wonder why?

    You are mixing hard and soft float architecture somehow. Is your sysroot using softfp? Then you should use the same for Qt compilation (currently you are using armhf - hard float).

    @shylock said in Qt 5.11 for Beaglebone Black:

    This time ./configuration script succeeded, I hope this could be reference to someone who need solution.
    please advise who to update the QT website page for BBB.
    https://wiki.qt.io/BeagleBone_Black_Beginners_Guide

    Hey, wow, great news :-) Please also try the compilation itself, too - sometimes the configure tests do not pick all the issues up and compilation fails later (well, Qt is a big beast).

    You should be able to modify the wiki page yourself - after editing it will display some scary error message but it is OK - the page will be put up for moderation (probably by @tekojo , I'm not sure who accepts the wiki changes).



  • Thank 4 confidence,
    But I am still grappling with the following problem

    I manage to build the qt on my x86_64 server.
    after "sudo make install on my dev machine"
    I copied an entire directory of qt5.11 across the BBB and moved in /usr/local/qt5.11 directory structure.
    the directory /usr/local/qt5.11/lib has all the libs which were build on theserver.
    A quick small qt program developed and deployed to BBB to run ./qt-arm-test But
    I have following problem
    error while loading shared libraries: libQt5Widgets.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    I ran ldconfig -v and my environment variable for LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/qt5.11/lib

    echo $LD_LIBRARY_PATH 
    /usr/local/qt5.11/lib:/usr/local/lib:/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf:/lib
    

    while $PATH variable also points to qt5.11/lib directory.
    But still, the application failed to run. How can be remedied this problem? I have thrown almost everything lock, stock n barrel.

    Check where it is looking for libQt5Widgets with ldd:

    ldd qt-arm-test
    

    You can also run it on your Qt .so files to see if they look correct.



  • I am using BBB with kernel 4.15.1 without any graphical server.
    I understood that the QT provide graphical rendering on the screen. As I knew that
    graphic rendering done by X11 windowing system or Framebuffer or EGLs by qt but in true sense egls require sgfx_graphic rendering manager to which currently not installed in fact none of x11, xorg, fb or sgx driver currently exists with kernel.
    My requirements are minimum or no desktop graphical environment. The application program will render all the graphic through Qt's egls facility.
    Can you please shed a light on this to run minimum graphic or only Qt-application will render graphics during its session.
    How can be achieved.


  • Moderators

    Qt can run without windowing system when you run it with EGLFS plugin. Possibly also with LinuxFB, but that plugin is not actively maintained anymore. You need to have the drivers and OpenGL libs installed.

    To make sure EGLFS plugin is compiled, check your configure output.

    To run your application with EGLFS plugin, run it like this:

    ./your_app -platform eglfs
    


  • Hi
    I built Qt5 for Beaglebone Black, ON BeagleBone Black computer itsefl with 'arm-linux-gnueabihf-' compiler located in the BBB's /usr/bin/ directory an entire qt5 build succeeded
    cloning http://code.qt.io/cgit/qt/qt5.git/?h=5.11
    and configuring as follow:
    ./configure -v -opensource -confirm-license -prefix /usr/local/qt5.11 -device linux-beagleboard-g++ -device-option
    CROSS_COMPILE=/usr/arm-linux-gnueabihf- -qt-libpng -qt-libjpeg -no-opengl -qpa eglfs -no-gcc-sysroot -release -no-use-gold-linker -ico -gif -platform linux-clang

    when I run a test program on the BBB computer I am keep getting following message:
    This application failed to start because it could not find the Qt platform plugin "eglfs" in "".
    Application platform plugins are: linuxfb, minimal, offscreen, vnc
    Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.
    Aborted.

    Although I have install xdm, xorg on BBB and I can startx window which run perfectly but my own test program cannot????
    as you can see I included in my configure eglfs option.
    Some help will be truly grateful
    thank you,


  • Moderators

    Check configure output - does it say that EGLFS support will actually be compiled?

    xdm, xorg on BBB and I can startx

    That's unrelated to EGLFS.



  • Hello Sierdzio,
    I revisited my qt5 build as follow
    /home/username/qt5/qtbase/src/plugins/platforms
    Where Makefile resides. Runnings again 'make' that will build entire contents of platform directory including eglfs vnc and linuxfb ... etc.
    while 'sudo make install' will get installed in /usr/local/qt5.11/... directory I assume. So the rebuilding platforms directory will definitely build eglfs and install.
    Whats your thoughts ... pls let know.

    None, I don't know what your question is ;)
