How can i make an image for iMX7 but with Qt5.4.1?

Hello,

ist it possible to make an image for Colbiri iMX7 with Qt5.4.1 ?

cheers

I’m afraid that you will have to make a full Yocto build, adding the Qt libraries to your image, which may or may not be the original Angstrom-LXDE image Toradex uses but with the Qt libraries added.

Please check the OpenEmbedded (core) documentation from Toradex first, and then more concretely the “Adding the Qt5 layer” part:
http://developer.toradex.com/knowledge-base/board-support-package/openembedded-(core)#Adding_the_Qt5_Layer

You will have to add the packages to the image

PREFERRED_PROVIDER_psplash-support = "psplash-angstrom"
IMAGE_INSTALL_append = " qtbase qtbase-fonts qtbase-plugins cinematicexperience"

and afterwards, build the SDK to cross-compile with QtCreator:
http://developer.toradex.com/knowledge-base/how-to-set-up-qt-creator-to-cross-compile-for-embedded-linux

Yocto/OpenEmbedded (core) is a huge world, where you can easily wander and get lost, so I hope this helps to get you on track :slight_smile:

@Zanam In addition to the above, you would need to use the fido branch of meta-qt5 layer, since Qt 5.4.2 was available in the fido branch. See here.
