Hi all,

We've built experimental debian packages with the Qt5 buildbot hashes.
These are very simple packages that can be used to get an initial
feedback of Qt5 on N9 and N950 devices plus easing the development of
QtWebKit on them. The plan is to update these packages as soon as the
weekly hashes are available.


Repository line for scratchbox/device, armel only: deb
http://qtlabs.org.br/~lmoura/qt5 unstable main xcb
Script to install on the device): http://qtlabs.org.br/~lmoura/install_qt5.sh

The script will add a qt5.list to the software sources, update the
package list and install all qt5 modules available and dependencies.
To become root use "devel-su" in the terminal application or through
ssh. A developer-mode enabled device is needed. Extra xcb-utils
packages were added to the repository under the xcb component as they
are available for the scratchbox target but not for in the devices'

All files are installed to /opt/qt5. To use qmlscene and friends just
point PATH to /opt/qt5/bin.


The debian patches and sources are hosted on gitorious clones, branch debianize.

Packages are named qt5-<module>, e. g. qt5-base, qt5-q3d.

qt3d: https://qt.gitorious.org/~lauromoura/qt/lauromoura-qt3d
qtsensors: https://qt.gitorious.org/~lauromoura/qt/lauromoura-qtsensors
qtlocation: https://qt.gitorious.org/~lauromoura/qt/lauromoura-qtlocation

Issues found when building the packages:

* uic crashes when building qtbase with -O2 on sbox armel. Using
DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS="noopt" to force build with -O0 while [1] is not
* qt3 shapes does not respect INSTALL_ROOT. Patched, to be reported upstream.
