Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1012520
qt-creator shouldn't depend on specific qt development package
Last modified: 2015-02-17 12:21:52 EST
Description of problem:
qt-creator package depends on qt-devel which is the Qt 4.8 development package. For Qt 5 development qt-creator should be used but this dependency to qt-devel installs unwanted packages.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install qt-creator package
It tries to install qt-devel package as a dependency.
Since qt-creator package can be used for both qt4 and qt5 development, it shouldn't depend on any specific qt versions or a qt5-creator package is needed.
I'm trying to switch qt-creator to build Qt 5 version by default - Qt 4 version is missing a few features - so now it makes sense to get rid of this dependency on Qt 4 devel and let developer to set up it's preferred environment. Local Qt 4/Qt 5, other kits using redistributed Qt etc.
I'll make this change (for F20+) once I'll be happy with Qt Creator SPEC on top of Qt 5. There are still some blockers, not sure we want to fix all of them (Oxygen theming for example).

more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
