Note that these instructions are preliminary and work in progress...

These instructions assume that you have a Symbian development set up and that you have the source code checked out.


  • QtWebKit is best built with Sbsv2 (aka Raptor). This setup assumes the availability of it.
  • Please install the Bison, Flex, ActiveState Perl etc. tools from GnuWin32. See the instructions for building on Windows where to get these.
  • Make sure that the GnuWin32 tools are installed in a path without spaces, i.e. not Program Files\GnuWin32 but for example c:\GnuWin32.
  • You need to have \GnuWin32\bin and \Perl64\bin (if that's where your Perl is installed) in your %PATH%.
  • In addition you need to have a native Windows compiler in your PATH, i.e. MSVC or MingW.

Building Qt

If you haven't done so already, try these instructions:

  • Clone Qt: git clone git:// qt-4.6
  • Set up the 4.6 Branch:
    • cd qt-4.6
    • git checkout -b 4.6 origin/4.6
    • git branch -D master
  • Configure: configure -xplatform symbian-sbsv2
  • Build for arm with 8 cores: sbs -c armv6_urel -j8
  • Get a cup of tea/coffee.
  • Put the qt-4.6\bin directory in your %PATH%.

Building WebKit

  • Build the generated files and set up the build system:
    • cd where-your-webkit-sources-are
    • perl WebKitTools\Scripts\build-webkit --qt --symbian
    • cd WebCore
    • Build for hardware: sbs -c armv6_urel -j8
    • Patch capabilities: perl %QTDIR%\bin\ QtWebKit_template.pkg release-armv6
    • Create the sis file: make sis
    • Drag'n'drop the resulting .sis file onto Nokia PC Suite to install it on the phone
