cleanup confusing sections and fix sections which contain a todo


cross compiling is still unstable

Tip
Note: This page is about KDE 4. It isn't applicable for KDE 3 development.

Contents

[edit] Basic tools

[edit] MinGw

Install mingw for linux

On debian the packages are called mingw32, mingw32-binutils, mingw32-runtime, you need to install mingw32 with gcc/g++ 3 and not 4 since that doesn't work with kdelibs, debian testing/unstable has gcc 4 so i've installed mingw32 package from ubuntu repository.

On gentoo, you need to do the following: "emerge crossdev; crossdev mingw32".

[edit] Qt4 Kdesupport and dependencies

You can install these dependencies(aspell, boost, dbus, qca etc..) from windows with the kdewin installer or manually download them from sourceforge mirrors

[edit] Qt4 and KDE4 for linux

You also need to have Qt4 and KDE4 already installed on linux, to use moc/uic/kde4automoc etc...

[edit] Cmake

To cross compile KDE you need CMake >= 2.5, you can get the last version from CVS

  • Create two files Toolchain-mingw32.cmake and mingw32-kdelibs.cmake with this contents and place them somewhere i.e. in your home

[edit] Toolchain-mingw32.cmake

set(KDE_PREFIX    /windows/kde4)

set(KDE4_AUTOMOC_EXECUTABLE ${KDE4_BIN_DIR}/kde4automoc CACHE PATH "")
set(KDE4_MEINPROC_EXECUTABLE ${KDE4_BIN_DIR}/meinproc4 CACHE PATH "")


adjust the values according to your setup

[edit] Build kdelibs

svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/KDE/kdelibs
cd kdelibs
mkdir build
cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_TOOLCHAIN_FILE=~/Toolchain-mingw32.cmake ..
  • you have to make a link to your kde4automoc and kconfig_compiler for linux in the bin directory
ln -s /path/to/kde4automoc bin/
ln -s /path/to/kconfig_compiler bin/
  • since linux is case sensitive you have to make symbolic links for some headers
cd /windows/kde4/include
ln -s soprano Soprano
  • You will get an error in klauncher.moc about slotKDEInitData so go into kinit and do something like this(you need wine)
rm *.moc
../bin/kde4automoc.exe /home/kdeuser/kde/src/KDE/kdelibs/build/kinit/klauncher_automoc.cpp /home/kdeuser/kde/src/KDE/kdelibs/kinit /home/kdeuser/kde/src/KDE/kdelibs/build/kinit /windows/kde4/bin/moc.exe

and then do make as usual

  • Another error in kdewidgets because wine doesn't find some dll to run makekdewidgets.exe so either run the linux version manually like this
makekdewidgets -o /home/kdeuser/kde/src/KDE/kdelibs/build/kdewidgets/kdewidgets.cpp /home/kdeuser/kde/src/KDE/kdelibs/kdewidgets/kde.widgets

or symlink those missing library in your wine system32 folder(i haven't tested it but it should work)

[edit] Build kdepimlibs

This is easy :)

svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/KDE/kdepimlibs
cd kdepimlibs
mkdir build
cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_TOOLCHAIN_FILE=~/Toolchain-mingw32.cmake -C ~/mingw32-kdelibs.cmake  ..
make
make install

[edit] Build kdebase

This is easy :)

svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/KDE/kdebase
cd kdebase
mkdir build
cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_TOOLCHAIN_FILE=~/Toolchain-mingw32.cmake -C ~/mingw32-kdelibs.cmake ..
make
make install

[edit] Icecream

One of the joys of cross-compiling is the possibility to use an icecream cluster to speed up compilation.

For Debian Etch, you can get an icecream environment from here:

ftp://ftp.kdab.com/gpg4win/devtools/debian-etch-mingw32-icecream-env.tar.gz

(If you want to create your own environment: icecc-create-env does a good job except that it packages the wrong as. /usr/bin/i586-mingw32msvc-as is needed)

The bin/ dir with symlinks from i586-mingw32msvc-* to /usr/bin/icecc:

ftp://ftp.kdab.com/gpg4win/devtools/icecc-mingw-bin.tar.bz2

Untar icecc-mingw-bin.tar.bz2 to icecc-mingw-bin

Then set the following environment variables:

export PATH=/path/to/icecc-mingw-bin/bin:$PATH
export ICECC_CC=i586-mingw32msvc-gcc
export ICECC_CXX=i586-mingw32msvc-g++
export ICECC_VERSION=i686:/path/to/debian-etch-mingw32-icecream-env.tar.gz,x86_64:/path/to/debian-etch-mingw32-icecream-env.tar.gz

(Re-)run cmake and have fun.
