These are my notes for compiling Qt 5.3.0 release using the fsl-community-bsp and the meta-qt5 layer graciously provided by the much lauded Otavio and Martin Jansa.  My test board is the wandboard solo.  My original procedure was based on this document: Compiling Qt5.3.0-beta1 on Yocto which was in turn based on this tutorial: Building Qt5 using yocto on Wandboard - Wandboard Wiki


Steps to build:


repo init -u https://github.com/Freescale/fsl-community-bsp-platform -b daisy; repo sync


cd sources; git clone https://github.com/cetola/meta-qt5.git


**as of this commit:


the meta-qt5 official repo is now using qt 5.3.  I won't be updating my layer, and I suggesting using theirs.


add to bblayers.conf:

  ${BSPDIR}/sources/meta-openembedded/meta-ruby \

  ${BSPDIR}/sources/meta-qt5 \


add to local.conf:

DISTRO_FEATURES_remove = "x11 wayland"

PACKAGECONFIG_append_pn-qtmultimedia = " gstreamer010 "


bitbake wandboard-image-qt5


I will do my best to keep this working with the latest in daisy. Current functionality includes playing hardware accellerated video in QML.  However, examples such as multimediawidgets/player,  multimediawidgets/videowidget do not play video. Also qtwebkit/browser, qtwebkit/youtubeview qtwebkit/fanicybrowser do not support HTML5 video.


Comments welcome.
