can qt works in sles11?



  • Hi,

    I am using an application in which i am getting the following error :

    "examples/qtforexamples/plugins/platforms/../../lib/libQt5XcbQpa.so.5: undefined symbol: XIQueryVersion"

    I am working in "Suse Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 11" Operating System.

    So i want to ask that , qt can work in this OS or not?

    Yes it can.
    But you need to provide more information:

    • How did you install Qt?
    • Which Qt version did you install?
    • How and where was this app built?
    • What this app built using same Qt version as the one you installed?

    I tried below command to install downloaded qt file:

    -> "tar -xf qt-everywhere-src-5.11.1.tar"
    but i am unable to install it
    -> i am trying to install qt5 version
    -> i was trying to launch a qt application using squish tool

    qt-everywhere-src-5.11.1.tar

    This is Qt source code, you don't need it to run Qt apps.
    You can simply install Qt provided by your Linux distribution.
    If that version is too old for this Qt app then use Qt online installer (https://www.qt.io/download) to install newer Qt version.

    I tried for linux 32 bit and downloaded the concerned file, but actually the problem is that in sles11 OS ,there is no internet access provided by sles11, so it is asking for credentials to install qt and then it is failing to access the internet.

    You can download offline Qt installer on another machine and copy it to your SLES.
    "there is no internet access provided by sles11, so it is asking for credentials to install qt and then it is failing to access the internet" - I'm not sure what you mean? Is it asking for root password? Why does your machine not have internet access?



  • @jsulm

    ->I have downloaded the qt installer in different machine and then copied the file in sles and then tried to install the ".run" file.
    It opened the qt UI and then asked for the email-id and password of my qt account, at this point it failed.
    -> SLES11 operating system does not support internet, so we can't connect to internet.

    There is Skip button to skip the log-in step.

    "-> SLES11 operating system does not support internet, so we can't connect to internet." - this is completely wrong. SLES11, like any other Linux, supports networking and Internet, don't know why you think it doesn't.

    We are not getting any "skip" option.

    May be it is possible to access internet, but we have tried alot, and unable to connect.

    @yashi What version of Qt Online Installer did you download?
    Also, did you select Qt Open Source when downloading the installer?
    Also, why don't you try to install Qt provided by SLES11?

    "May be it is possible to access internet, but we have tried alot, and unable to connect." - then there is an issue with your Internet connection or configuration of your machine, firewall or what ever...



  • @jsulm

    ->"What version of Qt Online Installer did you download?"-qt-unified-linux-x86-2.0.5-2-online.run
    ->"Also, did you select Qt Open Source when downloading?"- yes , i have selected open source
    ->"Also, why don't you try to install Qt provided by SLES11?"- i was trying to download some qt based applications for sles11, but i am unable to find such application.
    There are application available for sles12, 15, but not for sles11.



  • @jsulm

    There is no issue with internet connection or configuration in my machine , because i am able to access internet in windows. But there is problem with suse11 linux in providing internet access

    @yashi Current online installer is 3.0.6 not 2.0.5.
    "i was trying to download some qt based applications for sles11, but i am unable to find such application" - you should learn how your OS is working. SLES has a packet manager to install packages. See for example https://forums.suse.com/archive/index.php/t-7307.html And I'm not talking about installing Qt applications. I'm talking about installing Qt provided by SLES11...

    Also, you wrote before "SLES11 operating system does not support internet" which sounds like the operating system itself has no support for accessing Internet. This is for sure wrong. SLES is an enterprise grade Linux distribution mainly used on workstations and servers - how do you think such an operating system could be used on a server machine without support for networking/Internet? The fact that you have some issues accessing Internet doesn't mean that the operating system does not support it.

    Your interface is not configured. Try to follow your distro's instructions on how to do that.

    We are not getting any "skip" option.

    Remove the username, password and everything else you filled in and the Next button will morph into Skip.
