How do I compile an app I made in Qt Creator to my Raspberry Pi?
Here's my current setup: Qt Creator 2.4.1 running on Windows 7. I'm using MinGW for windows development, and Yagarto is installed as the Linux cross-compiler. Under the Qt Creator options, under Linux Devices, I have set up the Pi (at this point, Qt Creator sees the Pi with no problems when I press Test).
Here's my problem: I don't know how to get the Pi as a build target. I believe I have to set up the cross-compiler under Build & Run -> Tools. I've manually added the Yagarto executable here, but that hasn't gotten me a build target, or allowed me to compile anything for the Pi.
The documentation for Qt hasn't helped me, and the majority of what I find online about compiling for the Pi, or about deploying to general Linux systems, deploying from Linux to Linux, or from Linux to Windows. What I need is Windows to Linux.
Notes: I'm not married to any particular compiler or tool-chain, so feel free to give me your recommendations. Also, I'm a complete beginner (and with Linux, I'm less than a beginner). Really I'm just hacking around, trying to familiarize myself with the Pi/Linux, and developing for it. One thing I've read is "set up a virtual machine and develop on Linux," but I'd like to avoid that if possible.
Thanks in advance.
EDIT: NEW INFORMATION
After doing some research, I now realize that I need to compile Qt from source for the Linux/ARM architecture before I do anything else.
I found this question on StackOverflow, which led me to this blog post. Following these instructions has enabled me to use 'configure' to create the makefile with no problems. However, when I use jom to build qt, it builds for about 5 minutes, and then exits with the following errors at the command line:
jom: C:\qt-pi\src\coreLib\Makefile [..\..\lib\libQtCore4.dll] Error 1 jom: C:\qt-pi\src\coreLib\Makefile [all] Error 2 jom: C:\qt-pi\Makefile [sub-sorelib-make_default-ordered] Error 2 jom: C:\qt-pi\Makefile [all] Error 2
Anybody have any ideas?
I'm using MSVC2010 as the host compiler, building for arm-none-linux-gnueabi-g++. Sourcery Codebench Lite is installed as the cross compiler. Perl is installed. Finally, I do run the vcvarsall.bat file from the MSVC2010 directory before I do anything.
I just realized that where I'm at now with this is probably more appropriate for StackOverflow than here, so I've posed this question on that side. If anyone reading this has any ideas, though, please post your answers here. Also, if I ever figure this out, I'll post the solution here, too.
