Building Qt for Cloudgate

I am trying to build latest qt (5.13.2) for Cloudagte.

A former colleague of mine build Qt 5.4 years ago and the build guide is outdated for the latests Qt.  I only need Qt Base libraries.


I wonder if someone has built relative new version of Qt. I am getting this error in makefile configuration step:

/home/user/repos/qt5/qtbase/config.tests/arch/../../src/corelib/global/qprocessordetection.h:150:6: error: #error "ARM architecture too old"


We have an unofficial SDK which uses gcc 5.4.

This supports C++11, C++14, C++17, but requires you to use LD_PRELOAD for everything.


We are working on a kernel upstep, which will use gcc 7.3 most likely.

Dear Mikko,


We're currently planning to have this available in Q3 of 2021.

Hi Mikko,



Did you try the solution they suggested here?

OK, thank you. Is the compiler going to be updated to support C++11 some day?


Thank you for the link. I haven't seen it before.


It is said there that

"Qt 5.6 was the last Qt version that didn't need a C++11 compiler"


Is it so that compiler for Cloudgate build does not support C++11?



The sdk uses gcc 4.4.3 which does not support C++11 completely.

Great to hear, could you already tell if the kernel upstep is to be released in near future?
