Qt updates

From GeopsyWiki

Qt updates take place only when required for fixing bugs related to Qt. Else, we follow Ubuntu integration of Qt. Current status is available at http://packages.ubuntu.com.

New Qt release should compile and be tested successfully under development environment before switching to a new Qt release.

Note: source and windows must have the same reference Qt version.

Source

  • log to server
 cd /geopsy/build/qt
  • download source archive
wget http://download.qt.io/archive/qt/4.8/4.8.6/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.8.6.tar.gz
  • change version number in build script
cp build-4.7 build-4.8
vi build-4.8
  • compile and install in usr/local/Qt/4.8.6
nohup ./build-4.8 > build-4.8.log&
  • create symlinks src and win32 in usr/local/Qt/4.8.6
  • set reference version in admin/option.factory
  • keep changes in mkspecs/win32-x-g++/qmake.conf when installing Qt (probably no longer usefull, cross-compilation natively included in win32-g++)
    • check differences between win32-g++/qmake.conf
      diff -r old/mkspecs/win32-g++/qmake.conf new/mkspecs/win32-g++/qmake.conf
    • cp -r new/mkspecs/win32-g++ new/mkspecs/win32-x-g++
    • cp old/mkspecs/win32-x-g++/qmake.conf new/mkspecs/win32-x-g++
    • edit according to difference between old and new win32-g++/qmake.conf
    • set version number in mkspecs/win32-x-g++/qmake.conf (in QMAKE_INCDIR_QT and QMAKE_LIBDIR_QT)
  • run a make clean in devtools

Windows

  • download and unpack Qt archive under VirtualBox
  • move all from C:\Qt\x.x.x to a Y:\qt
  • copy all to compile server:
 scp -r qt/x.x.x geopsy:/build/usr/local/Qt/x.x.x/win32-bin
  • copy mingwm10.dll from a previous version into /usr/local/Qt/x.x.x/win32-bin/bin
  • set version number in mkspecs/win32-x-g++/qmake.conf (in QMAKE_INCDIR_QT and QMAKE_LIBDIR_QT)
  • set reference version in admin/option.factory
  • before publishing any release, copy Qt tar.gz files generated during package build in /build/windows/3rdparty/Qt
 scp * xxxx@geopsy.org:/var/www/download/htdocs/archives
  • run a make clean for devtools and all other projects
dpfacdo -f dpfacmake -m clean \$PLATFORM \$BRANCH

Mac

  • download source archive
  • copy it to qt
  • change version number in ./build
  • run nohup ./build > build.log&
  • set reference version in admin/option.factory
  • before publishing any release, copy Qt tar.gz files generated during package build in build/3rdparty/Qt
 scp * xxxx@geopsy.org:/var/www/download/htdocs/archives
  • run a make clean for devtools and
dpfacdo -f dpfacmake -m clean \$PLATFORM \$BRANCH
