Building the Qt port on MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan with Qt 5

See also Building QtWebKit on Linux

This page, as well as the attempt of achieving this build, is work in progress.

Assumptions

Installing Build Dependencies

Inside Scratchbox:

  • Basic build deps, shared between Qt 5/4 and WebKit stuff: fakeroot apt-get build-dep qt4-x11 libgrob-qtwebkit (Yes, the libgrob-qtwebkit part is intentional)
  • Dependencies needed for XCB back-end: fakeroot apt-get install libxcb1 libxcb1-dev libx11-xcb1 libx11-xcb-dev libxcb-keysyms1 libxcb-keysyms1-dev libxcb-image0 libxcb-image0-dev libxcb-shm0 libxcb-shm0-dev libxcb-icccm1 libxcb-icccm1-dev libxcb-sync0 libxcb-sync0-dev libxcb-xfixes0-dev
  • Ensure the render packages are gone: fakeroot apt-get remove --purge libxcb-render-util0 libxcb-render-util0-dev

Getting the Qt sources

Outside Scratchbox:

  • git clone git://gitorious.org/qt/qt5.git qt5
  • cd qt5
  • Check out the current qt5 revision used by the bot to run tests: git checkout 91f83fa33a1cc5a97b17d8e4d25e1bb952006061
  • Initialize & Clone the sub-modules needed: ./init-repository --module-subset=qtbase,qtxmlpatterns,qtscript,qtdeclarative

Note: Use the following commands to update from a previous check-out:

  • cd qt5
  • git fetch --recurse-submodules
  • git checkout 91f83fa33a1cc5a97b17d8e4d25e1bb952006061
  • git submodule update --recursive

If you'd like to clean out everything(!), you can use the following sequence of commands:

  • cd qt5
  • git submodule foreach --recursive git clean -fdx
  • git clean -fdx
  • ./configure ......

Build Instructions for Qt

Note: DO NOT USE SHADOW BUILDS OF QT (MODULES) AT THE MOMENT.

Inside Scratchbox in the qt5 directory:

export -n QTDIRTo unset QTDIR. Or make sure that QTDIR points to your qt5/qtbase directory.
./configure -developer-build -opensource -confirm-license -fast -force-pkg-config -nomake tests -nomake examples -nomake demos -platform linux-g++-maemo Note the use of the maemo mkspec
makeFrom the toplevel qt5 directory to build all modules in one shot.
export PATH=$PWD/qtbase/bin:$PATHEnsure your PATH is up-to-date to use the qt5 qmake instead of the default one.

Build WebKit

  • perl Tools/Scripts/build-webkit --qt --release --no-3d-canvas --qmakearg="CONFIG+=use_qt_mobile_theme"

Install dependencies on the device

  • Some packages are not in the device apt repositories and therefore need to be transfered from scratchbox.
    • Execute the following lines inside scratchbox:
      fakeroot apt-get -d install libxcb-image0 libxcb-keysyms1 libxcb-icccm1 libxcb-aux0 libxcb-event1 libxcb-property1
      mkdir ~/swork/packages && cd ~/swork/packages
      cp /var/cache/apt/archives/libxcb-image0_* . 
      cp /var/cache/apt/archives/libxcb-keysyms1_* .
      cp /var/cache/apt/archives/libxcb-icccm1_* .
      cp /var/cache/apt/archives/libxcb-aux0_* .
      cp /var/cache/apt/archives/libxcb-event1_* .
      cp /var/cache/apt/archives/libxcb-property1_* .
      
    • Now ssh to the device and change into your NFS mounted directory to install the previously downloaded packages
      cd /your_nfs_mount/swork/packages/
      dpkg -i *
