Getting started building hifi on my desktop box, which is running opensuse 13.1.
Oftentimes, getting a piece if software like hifi running is very much about getting the dependencies right from the outset. Indeed, its everything.
This case is not different
Firstly, there is something that isn’t quite right about 'suse 13.1’s Qt5. Specifically, there seems to be something missing with respect to webkit and the webkit widgets. This prevents the dist Qt5 being used for the hifi build.
Fortunately, Thanks to BeyBar on good old IRC, I got Qt working by following these instructions:
Subsequently, I point the hifi build to the userspace Qt installation according to the instructions in the hifi BUILD.md file.
Protip: Use all your cores (gmake -j[#cores]) when you build Qt5. With firstname.lastname@example.orgGHz building Qt5 took me 5.5 Hrs.
I’m now on to a new error, which looks like this:
Anyone have any ideas? maybe a fully full-on clue?
Thanks for all the fish
