Qt Build Environment

We are using IMX6DL in our design (referenced from SabreSD board). I am trying to configure my build environment, in particular configuring QtCreator for my target setup.


1. There are different articles/forum postings describing this process. What is the best/recommended method? Is this the best set of guidelines to follow: Setting up Qt Creator to build for i.MX6 ?


2. I noticed that here ( ) are another set of instructions with one big difference: this one suggests adding the following line to "source /opt/poky/1.4.1/environment-setup-armv7a-vfp-neon-poky-linux-gnueabi"

Is this necessary?


3. In both the above steps, it creates and SDK with the build tools (compiler/linker etc) build into it and suggests that the compiler to use is in here: /opt/poky/1.4.1/sysroots/x86_64-pokysdk-linux/usr/bin/armv7a-vfp-neon-poky-linux-gnueabi/arm-poky-linux-gnueabi-g++


How is this compiler different from the linaro toolchain? Which one is the recommended toolchain to use?
