Hey guys, does anyone has any idea how to workaround this issue (except by upgrading kernel since it is not possible)?
We really want to buy Qt but we are struggling with this major blocker.
Ok good news!
I got Qt 5.8-beta compiled (didn't tried QtWebkit yet and previous versions don't compile, dunno why)! -> I'll post a complete step-by-step here once I got everything to work.
Sent to the device just the libQt5Core and a HelloWorld app that just write a line to the console I built with QtCreator and this is the output:
/data/opt/helloconsole $ ./HelloConsole A newer kernel is required to run this binary. (__kernel_cmpxchg64 helper)
Any idea on what can be? As the image I posted here, the kernel is 3.0.56...
@tomasz3dk Thanks for get back. We cannot create an image for the device. We can only create applications for it. And yes, we have a toolchain with sysroot here. Tutorials like that one is one of the multiple ones around the web that points to specific PI build. There is no docs or tutorial for general ARM devices.
I updated the post with basic information of the device processor.
@mrjj It is for a commercial project. At first we are aiming this PAX device since it is the more "flexible" device in the payment industry but we want to get other players supported as well (like Verifone, Ingenico, etc.).
Like I said, I tried to hire people just to build Qt for the device but no success. I found lots of people that know QML and development FOR Qt but none that actually cross compiled it for an embedded device.
@mrjj Qt 5.
Also, its not intended to run full blow websites and neither video or other multimedia content on our device.
The idea is that application developers can code the apps using modern web frameworks hence why we want a modern web engine. It is just "simple" payment applications with small screens, hence the small resource usage on those "sites".
Looks like your connection to Qt Forum was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
