Like the subject line says, is it possible to compile Qt 4.7 for vanilla Puppy 4.3.1? I've been told before that it wasn't possible to compile it (at least 4.5 or higher) against the 4.3.1 kernel... but I haven't really seen any indication on the Qt project site that it has to be compiled against a certain kernel version or higher. glib/c versions, yes, and that'll probably be what disqualifies Puppy 4.3.1. Razz

(Yes, I know I can technically update glib/c and other critical libs on 4.3.1, or use Puppy 5. Mr. Green I'm mostly curious, though.)

Hi!

Yep! The compilation took about 36 hours on an ACER 31+ (yikes!), but it's possible. I did it 2-3 years ago for a mywolf puplet, if I remember correctly.
The mywolf series were based on the early Quirky's, so Puppy 4.31 is pretty close.

BFN.

I have an old Compaq laptop with 192megs of ram.
I am running Puppy 4.3.1 on it along with Qt and a disk image mounting program called aspeqt that requires it.
And I did not compile Qt for Puppy 4.3.1!
I used Qt4-4.8.0.sfs and Qt_DEV-4.8.0.sfs on it.
And it works!

By the way. aspeqt is for mounting Atari drive images for use with a serial port connected Atari PC.
I can access the mounted drives and even boot from the drive 1 image located on the Compaq PC.

Hmm... are those pemasu's builds?

If so... is there an easy way to tell if it works? I've only installed Qt4-4.8.0.sfs (I'm at my SFS limit, and haven't installed any other sfs-loading method, yet)...
(if they are pemasu's builds, and they work, I'll probably swap out the sfs for the .pet versions. Embarassed )

I grabbed and tried a few Qt programs from pemasu's archive, and they all wanted a higher glibc version. Razz
Also, I tried the latest version of Skype for Linux (aren't they supposed to offer a static version? All I could find other than the distro-specific versions was a 'dynamic' version... and that gives me the infamous

...error. Rolling Eyes )

It's not that old. Mr. Green

Actually, I'm using a specialized revision of 4.3.1, and everything I need more or less runs with no problems on it. Sure, there are programs I don't really need but wouldn't mind running, every once in a while, that'll gripe about the out-of-date glibc, but beyond that...

Also, I maintain builds of Pidgin for those still running 4.3.1. As for why they're still using it, you'd have to ask them. Very Happy

...and I don't have any real problems with the use of .pets. PPM could stand to be improved, sure, but it hasn't given me much problem. This is mostly off-topic, anyway, so...
