Qt 4.6 for Maemo 5 development, now also on Windows

Following the hacky Mac OS X MADDE support, we've finally managed to bring the Qt 4.6 beta for Maemo 5 also to Windows developers.

Usual disclaimer: Use at own risk. This is a temporary and unsupported measure until full Qt 4.6 support is added to MADDE and Qt Creator.

The following assumes that MADDE was installed to C:MADDE.6.14. If not, please adjust the paths in the instructions below.

  1. Install MADDE
  2. Download qt4-maemo5-windows-20100210.tar.gz to C:MADDE.6.14
  3. Open a MADDE shell and use the following commands to unpack Qt 4.6 Beta into the fremantle sysroot:

    cd /sysroots/fremantle-arm-sysroot-2.2009-51-1-qt453
    mkdir opt
    cd opt
    tar -xzvf /qt4-maemo5-windows-20100210.tar.gz

Now, go to your favorite project and type /sysroots/fremantle-arm-sysroot-2.2009-51-1-qt453/opt/qt4-maemo5/bin/qmake and make. Hint: If you use qmake a lot, you can copy qmake.exe to a more convenient location, or set your $PATH environment variable to save some typing.

Happy MADDE'ing :)
