[edit] Cross-building QtMoko on Debian

It is possible to cross-build QtMoko on a Debian box using only (em)debian tools.

On my Zotac ZBox (amd64) the whole build takes just less than five hours.

[edit] Tools needed

The builds are done the Debian way, using pbuilder on a Debian Wheezy box. Most of the magic is handled by the pdebuild-cross package:

$ sudo apt-get install pdebuild-cross

The toolchain comes from the Emdebian project and is set up via the multistrap package (pulled in by pdebuild-cross).

[edit] Building QtMoko v35

QtMoko v35 is the trickiest case since it requires a Debian Squeeze pbuilder chroot which misses the xapt tool. Hopefully an official backport will be available soon. For now I use a backport sitting in my own repository.

Cross-building QtMoko on Debian

It is possible to cross-build QtMoko on a Debian box using only (em)debian tools.

The builds are done the Debian way, using pbuilder on a Debian Wheezy box. Most of the magic is handled by the pdebuild-cross package:

Building QtMoko v35

QtMoko v35 is the trickiest case since it requires a Debian Squeeze pbuilder chroot which misses the xapt tool. Hopefully a backport will be available soon.

Configuration

The toolchain comes from the Emdebian project and is set up via the multistrap package (pulled in by pdebuild-cross).

First clone the QtMoko repo:

Patch the debian files

$ wget -O - -c http://wiki.openmoko.org/images/f/f6/QtMoko-v35-pdebuild-cross-patch.txt | patch -p1

Building the QtMoko package

$ tar czf ../qtmoko_35.orig.tar.gz -C .. --exclude .git --exclude .pc --exclude qtmoko/debian --transform 's:\./qtmoko:qtmoko-35:' ./qtmoko

Build:

$ pdebuild-cross -aarmel

On my Zotac ZBox (amd64) the whole build takes just less than five hours.
