Qt World Summit: Submit your Presentation

MIPS64 + Debian + Qt 5.9.1

  • Hello!
    Ivegot Software wich I must launch on MIPS64+Debian
    But this Software was built by Qt5.9.1 and gcc 5.4.0
    I cant find the appropriate Qt, please help!
    Thanks in advance

  • Lifetime Qt Champion


    You can use the Debian provided Qt packages otherwise you’ll have to either build Qt natively on your MIPS device or cross-compile it.

  • Thank you for your support!
    I tried to do that but there is no compiler installed in creator, cannt build , creator says what desktop cant built...
    Please help, Fisrts ive installed qt5 defsult and afer that qtcreator from Debian for mips, 64bit

  • Moderators

    i don't know if everything is clear already. So let's make some things sure first.

    You can (cross-)compile for MIPS from Debian. But you cannot launch MIPS compiled binaries on (Desktop-)Debian.
    There is no prebuilt Qt version for MIPS available for download. So you will need to cross compile a Qt version from source first.
    This is done by using the cross compile toolchain for MIPS.
    Then you can think of building applications for MIPS in QtCreator.

    @another_one So, you want to work directly on your MIPS machine?
    If so, did you install C++ compiler (install build-essential package)?

  • Yes want , not unstall yet, may its because if that, can provide full comand please

  • Lifetime Qt Champion


    apt-get install build-essential

  • Ive done it, but creator still without gcc compiler under 64 bit MIPS Debian 64...
    Ive found gcc 4.8 on Debian but thats only for 32 bit
    Can somebody say how to compile gcc ownself inder 64 bit MIPS Debian 64 in details?, please
    What is necessary have and download from
    Thanks in advance

  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    Did you check that you can compile something from the command line ?

    Debian provides g++ for the MIPS64el architecture. See here.

  • Not yet, Ill try. Thanks!

  • I tried to check compilation in command line with your link
    but deb package wasnt installed
    The error says that arch of installed packet(mips64el) do not appropriate to arch of the system (mips)

  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    If you installed Debian for the mips architecture, then install packages for that architecture.

  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    You have a Debian installation, you should use apt-get to install the package you need.

  • Yes you right, I do it when the package is being
    In my case I didnt find qt for mips64 under Debian package with appropriate compiler

  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    @another_one What do you see if you execute

    apt list | grep qt5

  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    Do you realise that if you have installed Debian using the mips architecture it's for 32bit mips processors ? The debian-mips64el port is for 64bit mips processors.

    See here.

  • @SGaist thank you for this link, ive got 64 bit mips processor and mips64el package cannt be installed on my machine its fact
    Now Ive the following- installed creator, build essential ans so on, but when i open creator he isnt integrate any compiler. In usr/bin, i have g++, mips64 gcc, gcc-4.9, but qtreator dont see their, rather when i integrate these by myself...

  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    From what you wrote, you have installed Debian for the mips architecture. If you want 64bit support, you have to go with the mips64el from the start.

    How did you install Qt Creator ?

    Out of curiosity, why are you using the jessie rather than stretch ?

  • unfortunally Ive already got this OS from producer of HW and its unpossible to change it by ownself cause its very specialized

  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    In what way is specialized ?
