With Qt-5.x version 5.14.0 qmake gives compile error
« on: July 17, 2020, 06:07:18 PM »
I'm getting the following error with Qt-5.14.0 on TCP-11.0:

Code: [Select]
Could not find qmake spec 'linux-g++'.
Error processing project file: /tmp/ostinato/source/ostinato-1.1/ost.pro
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found.  Stop.
make: *** No rule to make target 'install'.  Stop.

Compiling the same package on TCP-10.1 with Qt-5.11.2 goes fine.

From googling a bit I get that the "Could not find qmake spec 'linux-g++'" error is likely an Qt (environment) issue.

I hope someone can help with this..

The paths containing linux-g++ in qt-5.x-dev are consitant between the versions of qt-5.x-dev in tinycore 10.x and 11x, so you would think that something that worked with one would work with the other...

Hi Juanito,

I also tried to use Qt-5.11.2 with TCP 11.0 (e.g. wget http://www.tinycorelinux.net/10.x/x86/tcz/qt-5.x-<each needed component>.tcz[.dep|.md5.txt]), and with Qt-5.11.2 it start to compile.
(eventually it failed with a bunch of 'undefined reference' errors, likely due to changes in openssl. Which likely can be solved with using more packages from 10.x)

From that I would think the issue must be with Qt-5.14.0.

First few lines with Qt-5.11.2 on TCP 11.0:

Same lines with Qt-5.14.0 (on TCP 11.0):

Is qt-5.x-dev loaded in tc-11.x?

Hi @rhermsen and @Juanito and all.

After loading the entire Qt5-dev environment, I too am stuck right from the start with this same error "Could not find qmake spec 'linux-g++'." Wondering if you might have figured it out or have some suggestions. I've rattled around in StackOverflow and other sites where this error is discussed but I haven't been able to connect the dots and solve it.

Maybe.... can you suggest a current TC11 Qt5 application on the Tiny Core repository which I can use to study the ../src/compile_notes? 

My little compile project is for a simple github clone that has a normal qmake project file qView.pro  (please see below).  Nothing too ambitious to learn the Qt5 ropes... or so I thought. ;-)

Hi Billy,

I used TCL-10.x/Qt-5.11.2 to successfully compile my Qt5 program.

Unfortunately I have not found a workaround/solution to achieve the same with TCL-11.0/Qt-5.14.0.
(for me it is easy to spin up a TCL-10.x VM i.s.o. TCL-11...)

avidemux was compiled against qt-5.x-dev relatively recently: http://tinycorelinux.net/11.x/x86_64/tcz/src/avidemux/

Maybe your program is hardwired to look for qt dev files under /usr rather than /usr/local?

Hi Juanito
I don't know ho relevant this might be, but your example is using  cmake  while rhermsen and Rudock1 appear to be using  qmake.

It was more a proof that the current qt-5.x was able to be used to build something quite complex  :)

Thanks, everybody, I did finish the compile with Qt5 (v5.14.0) albeit with an interesting workaround.

The error "Could not find qmake spec 'linux-g++'." led me to https://stackoverflow.com/questions/27524680/i-have-this-error-in-qt-creator-could-not-find-qmake-configuration-file-linux-g/33782609  As instructed, I ran qmake -version to determine qmake's $QTDIR variable and mine said "Using Qt version 5.14.0 in /tmp/tcloop/qt-5.x-bin/usr/local/lib". ... don't usually see references to our tcloop directories.

So I rebooted and I did tce-load -i -c ./qt-5.x-bin.tcz (only this tcz, no other dependencies) to force one time copy to the file system for qmake and then got the appropriate result for $QTDIR:
Code: [Select]
[/mnt/sdc1/source_pkgs]{$?=0}Sat Aug 22 14:00:58 > qmake --version
QMake version 3.1
Using Qt version 5.14.0 in /usr/local/lib

After that the make compile was flawless.  First time I have used the tce-load -c option.  Came in handy!  I appreciate everybody's support;

thx

Hi Rudock1
Instead of copying  qt-5.x-bin.tcz  to the file system, does it work if you execute this first:
Code: [Select]
export QTDIR="/usr/local/lib"

Hi Rich,

That's a good suggestion.  I did now both ways, before and after loading qt-5.x-bin.tcz, but qmake -version still showed "Using Qt version 5.14.0 in /tmp/tcloop/qt-5.x-bin/usr/local/lib". while echo $QTDIR gives us /usr/local/lib

thx
Billy

Hi Billy,

With your workaround 'tce-load -i -c ./qt-5.x-bin.tcz' it also works for me.
Thanks!
