How can I compile and run my own Qt application on L3.14.52_1.1.0-ga_images_MX6QDLSOLO with fsl-image-qt5-fb-imx6qdlsolo file system? from where should i get the qmake for making my own Qt application?
Hello Shyamjith K V,
The qt5 toolchain is only available in the BSP Release. You may use the L3.14.52_1.1.0-ga BSP release if that suits your needs. You can find information on this release as well as instructions on how to build it in the link below, please look for Yocto User’s Guide. (Please note that you may need to login in order to download this file)
The repo you are using right now is for the Community BSP, which is part of the Yocto project so it get’s constantly updated. In your case you are using the Jethro (2.0) branch. However, the Community BSP does not have qt5 support.
For reference, the L3.14.52 BSP Release is based on the Fido (1.8) Yocto branch but it points towards a static commit.
You would need to extract the Qt Toolchain. There is more information on setting up the toolchain on the following document, which I think may help. Refer to requirement 3 and then after the toolchain is extracted and installed it would be on the path listed a bit below on the same document.
Setting up Qt Creator to build for i.MX6
Thanks for your time...
I just followed those steps with jethro branch of fsl-community-bsp-platform , and created tool chain for Qt4 successfully. L3.14.52_1.1.0-ga_images_MX6QDLSOLO is shipped with Qt5 support. How can i make the exact tool chain which can be used for that particular release that supports compilation of Qt application with QQuickView class?(When I tried to compile my Qt application using the newly created tool-chain, it did not support QQuickView class.)
Sorry i was using bitbake meta-toolchain-qt for making tool-chain.
Now , while I am running bitbake meta-toolchain-qt5 , I am getting following error.
ERROR: Nothing PROVIDES 'meta-toolchain-qt5'. Close matches:
What could be the reason?
The Qt5 toolchain is only available on the BSP release, not the Community BSP, so you would need to switch BSP in order to extract it. I'm not sure if QQuickView support is provided on that version but I would think it does.
I meant this..
(repo init -u https://github.com/Freescale/fsl-community-bsp-platform -b jethro)
Could you please give a link to the one that you have mentioned above..?
Thank you gusarambula,
Let me ask one more thing. What should i do if i need to build static version of qt ? Where should i add -static flag to build a tool chain which can make statically linked binaries.?
