* CMake: Move QT_HOST_PATH check and computation into Qt6 packageAlexandru Croitor2022-07-251-71/+0
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Instead of trying to compute and validate the QT_HOST_PATH and QT_HOST_PATH_CMAKE_DIR variables in the generated toolchain file, do it in the Qt6 package. This provides better error messages when a project is configured without using the Qt generated toolchain file. Because it's not done in the toolchain anymore, remove the various host variables from __qt_toolchain_used_variables.

* CMake: Support overriding CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE per-repo or testJoerg Bornemann2022-01-211-0/+6
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | One might want to build qtbase in Release, but qtsvg or some test in Debug mode. Before if qtbase was configured as Release, there was no way to override that. Now we try to detect whether a custom build type was specified to qt-cmake / qt-configure-module / qt-cmake-standalone-test / qt-internal-configure-tests Note mixing won't work on Windows due to different C/C++ runtimes.

* CMake: Allow enabling/disabling QT_HOST_PATH checks via variableAlexandru Croitor2021-10-291-1/+7
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | One can now pass -DQT_REQUIRE_HOST_PATH_CHECK=OFF or -DQT_REQUIRE_HOST_PATH_CHECK=ON to force disable or enable the QT_HOST_PATH and QT_HOST_CMAKE_DIR_PATH validity checks. One potential use case is if a project wants to manually find QtFooTools packages by manipulating CMAKE_FIND_ROOT_PATH and such, in which case they might not want to pass a QT_HOST_PATH. Another potential use case is cross-building Qt with -DQT_BUILD_TOOLS_WHEN_CROSSCOMPILING=ON and allowing the same generated toolchain file to be used on the device image. By default the generated toolchain file would require a host path because it expects that it's still being used for cross-compiling. But once the toolchain file is deployed to the device there's no need to use the host tools anymore. Another use case is building a desktop Qt using the host tools of another desktop Qt. The new desktop Qt can use its newly built tools just fine and wouldn't need the original desktop Qt tools. QT_REQUIRE_HOST_PATH_CHECK needs to be added the list of vars to pass through to try_compile calls.

The condition always resolved to TRUE which means the env vars were constantly re-assigned inside each try_compile project.

The extra re-assigning had no visible effect, so this is just cleanup. As a drive-by, clarify one comment.

* CMake: Clean up and improve QT_HOST_PATH_CMAKE_DIR computationAlexandru Croitor2021-10-291-5/+60
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Previously when one wanted to use a cross-compiled Qt with a host Qt installed in a non-default location, they'd have to provide both QT_HOST_PATH and QT_HOST_PATH_CMAKE_DIR. This change will now try to first check if ${QT_HOST_PATH}/lib/cmake is a valid path on disk and use that. This is nicer to the user because they don't need to specify 2 paths anymore. Furthermore the path computation and sanity checks are now done after any extra toolchain cmake files are loaded, to give an opportunity to the files to set the paths first. Finally, both variables need to be added to __qt_toolchain_used_variables so they are passed along to try_compile calls if the variables are specified manually. Otherwise when the toolchain file is loaded by a try_compile project, it will error out saying no host path found (as long as the initial paths embedded in the toolchain are invalid).

* CMake: Ensure that UNIX is set for INTEGRITYJoerg Bornemann2021-10-051-0/+6
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Certain platform-related variables, in this case UNIX, must be set in a platform module, because they get cleared after the toolchain file is loaded. Such platform modules live in upstream CMake, but there is none yet for INTEGRITY. This manifests in an undefined UNIX variable and "System is unknown to CMake" warnings for the project and every configure test. Add the CMake module "Platform/Integrity" in the cmake/platforms directory. Add this directory to CMAKE_MODULE_PATH to let CMake load Platform/Integrity when the toolchain file set CMAKE_SYSTEM_NAME to "Integrity". CMake's module directory takes precedence, when loading platform modules. This is special for platform modules and different from the documented behavior of CMAKE_MODULE_PATH and include(). In case the user wants to provide their own platform modules via CMAKE_MODULE_PATH, they can instruct Qt to not add its path by setting QT_AVOID_CUSTOM_PLATFORM_MODULES to ON. Make sure that configure tests with project files also load the custom platform module.

* CMake: Fix QT_ADDITIONAL_PACKAGES_PREFIX_PATH for cross-buildsAlexandru Croitor2021-08-191-2/+47
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | The QT_ADDITIONAL_PACKAGES_PREFIX_PATH variable was introduced to allow specifying extra locations to find Qt packages. The reason it was introduced instead of just using CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH is because the Qt6 component find_package call uses NO_DEFAULT_PATH which means CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH is ignored. We use NO_DEFAULT_PATH to ensure we don't accidentally pick up system / distro Qt packages. The paths from QT_ADDITIONAL_PACKAGES_PREFIX_PATH are added to the find_package PATHS option in the Qt6 package, each ModuleDependencies.cmake file and some other places. Unfortunately that's not enough to make it work for cross-builds. Imagine the following scenario. host qtbase, qtdeclarative installed in /host_qt target qtbase installed in /target_qtbase target qtdeclarative installed in /target_qtdeclarative We want to cross-build qtlottie. We configure qtlottie as follows /target_qtbase/bin/qt-configure-module /qtlottie_src -- -DQT_ADDITIONAL_PACKAGES_PREFIX_PATH=/target_qtdeclarative We expect the target QtQuick package to be found, but it won't be. The reason is that QT_ADDITIONAL_PACKAGES_PREFIX_PATH is added to the PATHs option, but we don't adjust CMAKE_FIND_ROOT_PATH. Without adding the new paths in CMAKE_FIND_ROOT_PATH, CMake will re-root the passed PATHs under the existing CMAKE_FIND_ROOT_PATH, which is QT_TOOLCHAIN_RELOCATABLE_INSTALL_PREFIX, which evaluates to /target_qtbase. There is no QtQuick package there. To fix this, prepend the values of QT_ADDITIONAL_PACKAGES_PREFIX_PATH to CMAKE_FIND_ROOT_PATH. The location where we currently do CMAKE_FIND_ROOT_PATH manipulations is in the qt.toolchain.cmake file, so to be consistent, we prepend the new prefixes there as well. We need to adjust both CMAKE_FIND_ROOT_PATH and CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH, due the path re-rooting bug in CMake. See as well as the existing comment in qt.toolchain.cmake marked with REROOT_PATH_ISSUE_MARKER. We also need to do a few more things to make the setup work Because Qt6Config uses NO_DEFAULT_PATH, the CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH adjustments we do in the toolchain file are not enough, so we still need to add the same prefixes to the Qt6Config find_package PATHS option. One would ask why do we need to adjust CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH at all then. It's for find_package(Qt6Foo) calls to work which don't go through the Qt6Config umbrella package. To make the CMake re-rooting behavior happy, we need to ensure the provided paths are absolute. So we iterate over the values of QT_ADDITIONAL_PACKAGES_PREFIX_PATH, to make them absolute. We do the same for the environment variable. We need to append lib/cmake to the prefixes which are added to CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH, otherwise the CMake re-rooting bug is hit. We need to specify the Qt6 package location (${_qt_cmake_dir}) to the PATHS option in the various files, to ensure that dependency resolution can jump around between the Qt6 dir and the additional prefixes. Previously the dependency lookup code assumed that all dependencies would be within the same prefix. The same is needed for qt and qml plugin dependency lookup.

* CMake: Check that QT_HOST_PATH is set when using the Qt toolchainAlexandru Croitor2020-09-151-0/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | If a consumer wants to cross-compile a Qt app, they need to provide the host Qt path location. When building Qt in the CI we embed the Qt host path into the generated CMake toolchain file for convenient building of other Qt modules. But once Qt is built, packaged and installed on a user's machine, most likely the Qt host path will not be the same. In such a case, if the user wants to use the convenience toolchain, they should explicitly provide the Qt host path via the QT_HOST_PATH and QT_HOST_PATH_CMAKE_DIR variables. Show an error message if the values are not provided or don't exist on the file system. It's possible that in the future the Qt installer will patch the toolchain file, or provide additional info, to point to the host Qt installation so that the user doesn't have to do it manually. But until that's done, a friendly error message is a good way to inform the user what they should do.

Before the host artifact reuse change, the host tools were found successfully. The difference that caused the issue is that the target install prefix was a direct subfolder of the host prefix. host - /home/qt/work/qt/install target - /home/qt/work/qt/install/target Before the host reuse change the install prefixes were as follows host - /home/qt/work/qt/install/host target - /home/qt/work/qt/install/target While looking for the Qt6CoreTools package, we temporarily set CMAKE_FIND_ROOT_PATH and CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH to contain first '/home/qt/work/qt/install' and then '/home/qt/work/qt/install/target'. CMake then reroots the CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH values onto values in CMAKE_FIND_ROOT_PATH, making an MxN list of prefixes to search. Rerooting essentially means concatenating 2 paths, unless the considered prefix is a subfolder of the root path. What happened was that the first considered value was '/home/qt/work/qt/install/home/qt/work/qt/install', a non-existent location that gets discarded. The second considered value was '/home/qt/work/qt/install/target. The second value is the result of seeing that '/home/qt/work/qt/install/target' is a subfolder of '/home/qt/work/qt/install' and thus the root path is stripped. All of this is done in cmFindPackageCommand::FindConfig() -> cmFindCommon::RerootPaths. The behavior above caused the target tools be found instead of the host ones. Before the host reuse change, both of the initial constructed prefixes were discared due to them not existing, e.g. '/home/qt/work/qt/install/target/home/qt/work/qt/install/target' and '/home/qt/work/qt/install/host/home/qt/work/qt/install/host' One of the later prefixes combined CMAKE_FIND_ROOT_PATH == '/home/qt/work/qt/install/host' + CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH == '/' resulting in '/home/qt/work/qt/install/host/' and this accidentally found the host tools package. We actually stumbled upon this issue a while ago when implementing Qt 5.14 Android CMake support in 52c799ed4425076df4353c02950ea1444fe5f102 That commit message mentions the fix is to add a "lib/cmake" suffix to the PATHS option of find_package(). This would cause the subfolder => strip root behavior mentioned above. So finally the fix. First, make sure not to append QT_HOST_PATH in the toolchain file, there shouldn't be any need to do that, give that we temporarily set it when looking for Tools packages. Second, recreate the subdir scenario in the Qt toolchain file by setting CMAKE_FIND_ROOT_PATH to the current (relocated) install prefix as usual, but also setting CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH to a new value poining to the CMake directory. Aka '/home/alex/qt' and '/home/alex/qt/lib/cmake'. Third, when a QT_HOST_PATH is given, save 2 paths in the generated Qt toolchain: QT_HOST_PATH and QT_HOST_PATH_CMAKE_DIR. There are the host equivalents of the target ones above. Use these values when looking for host tools in Qt6CoreModuleDependencies.cmake, again facilitaing the subdir behavior. Note these are currently absolute paths and are not relocatable. We'll have to figure out if it's even possible to make the host path relocatable. Finally as a cleanup, look for the Qt6HostInfo package in QtSetup strictly in the given QT_HOST_PATH, so CMake doesn't accidentally find a system Qt package.

* CMake: Protect against Qt toolchain file recursive inclusionAlexandru Croitor2020-06-041-3/+13
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Three different people have encountered the issue that calling calling qt-cmake on a project prints 1000 inclusion lines of the same qt toolchain file, and then CMake bails out saying can't find the CMAKE_MAKE_PROGRAM Ninja. This happened because people accidentally called qt-cmake to configure qtbase (instead of just cmake), which created a toolchain file that chainloads itself recursively. Error out when configuring qtbase, and when using the generated toolchain file in the case when it would try to include itself. The solution is to remove the qtbase CMakeCache.txt file, and configure qtbase again, so it generates a proper qt.toolchain.cmake file. If somebody feels enthusiastic, they can move the check into the qt-cmake and qt-cmake-private shell scripts, and error out before the qtbase/CMakeCache.txt is polluted with the wrong toolchain file. That is left for people that feel more comfortable with bash and batch scripting. Change-Id: If518c94791fe7c30731e6e462e347f26a5213c64 Reviewed-by: Joerg Bornemann <>
* CMake: Make build system of installed Qt more relocatableAlexandru Croitor2020-05-071-2/+8
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Aka handle CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX in a more relocatable way. The following story inspired this change. If a user wants to build a Qt repo into a different install prefix than the usual Qt one, this will fail configuration because we look for various things like syncqt, qdoc, etc relative to CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX, which will now point to a different location where none of the above tools are located. The intent for such a use case is to support building Qt packages with Conan, which sets a random install prefix when configuring a repo. The idea is to derive the qt prefix dynamically from the QtBuildInternals package location. Essentially it's a reverse relative path from the QtBuildInternalsConfig.cmake file to the install prefix that was specified when initially configuring qtbase. Once the dynamic prefix is computed (so we know where the possibly relocated Qt is), we can find tools like syncqt and qdoc. This is an initial attempt to support a use case like that. More design work will probably needed in case if tools / libs need to be found in a location different than the Qt install prefix (so support for multiple install prefixes / search paths). An example of such a case would be when building qtdeclarative and qtquickcontrols2 as Conan packages in one go. Most likely the qmltyperegistrar tool will be located in the random install prefix set by Conan, so building qtquickcontrols2 might fail due to not finding the tool in the original Qt install prefix. As to the implementation details, the change does the following: - Dynamically computes and sets the QT_BUILD_INTERNALS_RELOCATABLE_INSTALL_PREFIX variable when find_package()'ing QtBuildInternals. It's an absolute path pointing to where the relocated Qt is. - When building qtbase this variable is not yet available (due to QtBuildInternalsExtra not existing), in that case we set the variable to the absolute path of CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX (but only for the initial qtbase configuration). - Remove QT_BUILD_INTERNALS_ORIGINAL_INSTALL_PREFIX which was used for standalone tests purposes. It's not needed now that we compute the location of the Qt prefix dynamically. - The Unixy qt-cmake and qt-cmake-private shell scripts now use a relative path to find the toolchain file we created. - The toolchain file also dynamically computes the location of the Qt packages, and adds them to CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH. - A lot of existing CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX uses are replaced with QT_BUILD_INTERNALS_RELOCATABLE_INSTALL_PREFIX. This includes finding tool locations, mkspecs dir, path environment setup for tools, etc. - Some places still use CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH in the following cases - When determining paths while configuring qtbase (valid cases) - When I wasn't sure what the behavior should be, so I left them as-is (an example is documentation generation, do we want to install it into the random Conan prefix, or into the main prefix? Currently it installs in the random prefix). Note that relocating a Qt installation does not work for non-prefix / non-installed builds, due to hardcoded paths to include directories and libraries in generated FooTargets.cmake files.

| | | | | | | | | The original toolchain file may set CMAKE_FIND_ROOT_PATH instead of appending it, which overrides the Qt's path. Change-Id: I69a4bf4be6a999854bb8a84cf5032c6a9b739b2e Reviewed-by: Simon Hausmann <> Reviewed-by: Alexandru Croitor <>
* Fix osx deployment target and sysroot propagation in the qt toolchainSimon Hausmann2019-06-261-0/+2
| | | | | | | | | We need to save them in the toolchain file, otherwise we can't compile anything :) Change-Id: Ic5c53524fa4aa05d0b3229c2905dff92ca437ec1 Reviewed-by: Alexandru Croitor <> Reviewed-by: Qt CMake Build Bot
* Generate a toolchain and convenience cmake wrapperSimon Hausmann2019-06-241-0/+18
This gets us a step into the direction of convenience that qmake offered: * QtBase is configured with a long command line (especially when cross-compiling) * Afterwards application developers (or other module builds) can just use qmake && make By generating a toolchain file we can capture vcpkg and toolchain chain-loading and a shell script can take care of providing the prefix path.
