How to set up Qt Creator to cross compile for embedded Linux
I believe having safely built a Qt5 target image based on 2.6.1 Openembedded.
I also followed advice from :
Help needed to get Qt5 app on Colibri Dev Board 3.1A
Change the “build/conf/local.conf” file to add the required packages:
PREFERRED_PROVIDER_psplash-support = "psplash-angstrom" + +IMAGE_INSTALL_append = " qtbase qtbase-fonts qtbase-plugins cinematicexperience"
and then build the angstrom-lxde-image.
MACHINE=colibri-t20 bitbake angstrom-lxde-image
This would give an angstrom-lxde image with Qt5 and X11. But where such “image” is located ? It is something like a File System that can be sent to EVM target by means of NFS ? A new kernel is also required , to be transferred to target ex by means of FTP ? I understood that once such new target will be available, it was the target to be interfaced to a PC running qtcreator, isn’t it ?
Thank you for your attention.
