Solved Qt Creator / CMake compile output showing 0.0/sec in compile output
I don't know for sure if Qt Creator is providing this value or not. I recently upgraded to a different Linux distro on my build machine and reinstalled Qt Creator and CMake. I used to get a real value for the files compiled per second, but now it's always 0.0/sec. Where should I be looking to solve this problem - is it Qt Creator? See the attached picture for reference.
Found the answer. It was Ninja itself. Version 1.7.1 had a regression. Qt Creator was not really involved. CMake has it's preferred way of setting NINJA_STATUS and it was setting it properly for what I'm used to seeing. Once I upgraded again to Ninja 1.8.2 everything worked as expected.
