Headless build / without QT UI / without QT5 dependencies

Post by str77 » Tue Aug 25, 2020 10:46 am

Hello,

I want to create a package for synology NAS spk package system.
It would be ideal without QT5 dependencies.

I don't know if it's better to discuss here or if it's better to create a ticket...

However for the moment if I use the following configure flag:

Code: Select all

--disable-gui
Then the QT5 is still checked and configure step won't pass.

Code: Select all

checking for Qt5 qmake >= 5.9.0... not found
Should it be possible to build qbitorrent-nox without qmake ?

qBittorrent always depends on some Qt components. The nox version simply doesn't depend on the Qt Gui components.

In either case, qmake is actually completely optional, since you can also build with CMake (but note that CMake build support is still not very good, but improvements are in the works; it will eventually fully replace qmake as the buildsystem).
