Extension Development :: Freetype header problem

So, I take you built all the examples and demos? Did you use Qt 4.4 or an older one?
'Cause I'm interested in trying the Qt4 Webkit edition, which was included as a demo in 4.4.

As for the libs and headers, my recent build of 4.3 was only about 50mb, but I think including everything is nice.

It's the current Qt4.4 release, built everything.  It includes support for earlier Qt, but a lot has changed apparently.

No OpenGL support compiled in and I'm not sure about sound.

btw didn't know you did build it - where is that?

I spoke too soon.  Almost everything seems to have built, but not phonon and not the webkit browser demo :(

In both those cases it seems only static libs got built, so the corresponding demo does not compile.  

I will have to look more closely at what headers and libs are required at that point;  it must be finding only corresponding static libs and thus building a static lib for qtwebkit.

Most other demos appear to have compiled against shared libs aok.

I see there has been a lot of buzz about the qt webkit demo (or is it astroturf, since it doesn't have bells and whistles yet) so I'd quite like to get this working.

Some of these demos (which are working applications) are way cool.

Explicitly set the include path to freetype2 and then ran into the PATH_MAX error,  or so I realized after tracing back through the header errors.  I don't really know if it's kosher but I got around it by setting:

Code Sample
#define PATH_MAX        4096 /* # chars in a path name including nul */

at the top of the compiler.h header in the Qt4 sources.

That value is what I assume it is supposed to be from linux/limits.h, but I don't really know (or why Qt4 can't find that).
That's a problem with the compile-3.3.5 extension.
One way around it is to do the .../include workaround (see forum thread(s) or .info)

The .info has the wrong info, actually.  It has
$ cp -a /opt/compile-3.3.5/optional /opt
$ export CPPFLAGS=-I/opt/include
while the first line should be
$ cp -a /opt/compile-3.3.5/include /opt

EDIT:  might be ok to just put the QtCore and QtGui libs in a uci (that is the absolute minimum I think), but there is always going to be something that comes along that won't run.

Overly obsessing about the size of ucis is absolutely pointless anyway imho, it makes no difference whatsoever, except to the download size, and to all the things that won't run or to the lost functionality of the package because some key thing has been removed.
You could always make 2 extensions if there is a noticeable size difference (if you have time).

Thanks for that.  I didn't try that workaround.  There were no other missing system defines except PATH_MAX apparently.

I'll fool around and see if I can get the webkit demo built first.
