Error compiling Qt app

Thanks!

Had to install a package called x11proto-core-dev to get past that error.

Solution was to install libxext-dev

I just got another error: 
| Qt QTGUI library not found.
| Qt QTCORE library not found.


Found I needed to install libqt4-dev. However that depended upon
libglu1-mesa-dev which could not be installed.

Trying to directly install libglu1-mesa-dev and got:
  Depends: libglu1-mesa (=7.4-0ubuntu3.2) but 7.4-0ubuntu3.3 is to be
installed

Basically, the file in the repos was older than the one I had. What
happened, I found, is that I had installed libglu1-mesa 7.4-0ubuntu3.3 from
the Jaunty's Proposed which was now, along with any other packages built
from the mesa 7.4-0ubuntu3.3 source, no longer there. The solution was to
manually download and install it from
https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/jaunty/i386/libglu1-mesa-dev/7.4-0ubuntu3.3

Sheesh!

AND after doing all that, I ran out of disk space. This project is taking
up over 28GB of space!!!

So now I moved all files to external drive, and had to change the
following:
In /external-drive/path/project/build/tmp/saved_tmpdir contents had to
point to new tempdir.

Also, after all the above, I forgot to actually install libqt4-dev.

After that, still with the QT errors. So I opened the package mananger and
searched for everything libqt3 and installed it all. Then searched for
libqt4 and installed it all. Still I get the following error:

Ah ha! Part of the error fixed! Here's what was wrong, thanks to
http://blog.cor-net.org/hello-world-in-qt-using-cmake-and-openembedded/3/

CMake is using a file called FindQt4.cmake to look for Qt4 libraries, while
it would work with the qt4◊11 of Qt, Qt4-embedded produce libraries that
end with an E, making it inefficient only because of that missing E.
Since the problem has been corrected in a more recent version of cmake,
another cleaner solution is to download the last version of the
FindQt4.cmake file here and to replace yours. This will also work if you
have a native cmake (as long as your version is recent enough to handle
stuff in that .cmake file).

Otherwise, you can change add the E manually (dirty). If you use a cmake
from OE (ie you didnít ASSUME cmake-native in your local.conf), just edit
the file
/path/to/your/build/tmp-folder/staging/i686-linux/usr/share/cmake-2.6/Modules/Fi
ndQt4.cmake

Line 696, add ${QT_MODULE}E, it should now look like this:

NAMES ${QT_MODULE} ${QT_MODULE}4 ${QT_MODULE}E

Now, it finds QT4! WHO HOO!

However I get a new error:

Not sure what that means.

El3ctroded
Don't know if this is related, but I found this in
/media/320gb-2/project/build/tmp/work/armv4t-angstrom-linux-gnueabi/lcdslider-1.

El3ctroded
No, I don't think it's related... I deleted the log and the error didn't
reappear upon trying bitbake lcdslider again.

El3ctroded
Can no-one help? I'm really stuck here.

El3ctroded
Still no-one help?

eddylau
A poor lonely guy talking to himself in this show!

Anyway, it's a good show!

Thank you.

El3ctroded
Yeah, and I'm sort of fed up with it :( I can't seem to make any progress,
and many of the guides are abysmal: loads of it is incomplete and little
written to explain what I need explained, or it's so fragmented I can't
seem to put it together. I know 0 about Linux programming, cross compiling,
etc., but I need to get this done so I can start developing a QT4 app I
need for a project I'm doing.

I guess I'm just going to have to start over, which _really_ sucks because
downloading all of the stuff that had to be downloaded during the bitbake
compile took me a WEEK! and I expect if I delete the whole folder I have to
start that all over, but I don't know because no-one will answer any of my
questions, so I've stopped asking...

There's often talk about how great the Linux community is, but every time I
get stuck on something that's really important for me, I rarely get any
help or answers to my questions. 

And that doesn't usually bother me much, except I've got a timeline on this
and I'm sitting at square 1 because I can't get a successful compilation.

Ger rid of idiotic build systems never finished, never documented and
extremely over-bloated.

Do it manually, is faster, is smarter, gives you full control.
