qt4-devel: .qmake.cache missing
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:33 EST
In the devel packe the file .qmake.cache is missing. This file is needed for
apps that will use QSA!!
I don't see any reference to qmake.cache in qt4's build.log or in the usual
'make install' stage. (Which implies this may be an upstream problem).
When build Qt compte with the unmodifid buid script this file will be installed.
But you can simple copy it from the build dir to the QTDIR

AFAICT, this is the problem. It does not get installed during the normal build
Perhaps this begs the question, what makes you think that .qmake.cache really is
needed? How/Why is it used?
The QSA packed need the file to know how Qt was compiled.
Again, I ask, how/why does QSA require something that doesn't (normally) get
I don't kown but without the file you get warning about the missing file and
later bulding apps for QSA will fail. You can try it.
Not good enough. Upstream doesn't ship/install .qmake.cache, neither will we,
unless there is a *very* good reason.
Are you submitting QSA for FE review? If so, I can go take a closer look myself.
Yes I have. But without an correct and working Qt package I can not build any
At now I have my own perfect Qt package.
marked this as blocker for qsa submission, bug #191589
I have to say that after reviewing other distro's qt(4) pkgs, none of them ship
a .qmake.cache file either.
Frank, so what do you do to get .qmake.cache? Manually copy it to %qtdir?
Yes. I copy it from the Qt build place.
When you take a look in the precompiled package for windows an gcc from
trolltech you will find this file again.
AFAICT, qsa (now?) builds fine without the .qmake.cache file, can we close this
