Hello to everyone.
I'm Jeremias, from Argentina.
Recently I started working with the BBB and Qt software.
Tooks me a long time, but i finally be able to install it and make some tests.
But, i never can run an app using eglfs, when I run an Qt example project , i get:

Could not find the Qt platform plugin "eglfs" in ""

After a time, i see i never install so many things within the Qt installation, so i read a lot and i start over again.
But,  in the ./configure step, i got this error:

My configure:

sudo ./configure -no-gcc-sysroot -device linux-beagleboard-g++ -device-option CROSS_COMPILE=/opt/gcc-linaro-7.5.0-2019.12-x86_64_armv8l-linux-gnueabihf/bin/armv8l-linux-gnueabihf- -sysroot /mnt/bbb-rootfs -opensource -confirm-license -optimized-qmake -reduce-exports -release -make libs -prefix /usr/local/qt5bbb -hostprefix /usr/local/qt5bbb -qt-zlib -qt-libpng -no-openssl -opengl es2 -eglfs -v

Error:

ERROR: Feature 'opengles2' was enabled, but the pre-condition 'config.win32 || (!config.watchos && !features.opengl-desktop && libs.opengl_es2)' failed.

ERROR: Feature 'eglfs' was enabled, but the pre-condition '!config.android && !config.darwin && !config.win32 && features.egl' failed.

ERROR: The OpenGL functionality tests failed!
You might need to modify the include and library search paths by editing QMAKE_INCDIR_OPENGL[_ES2],
QMAKE_LIBDIR_OPENGL[_ES2] and QMAKE_LIBS_OPENGL[_ES2] in the mkspec for your platform.


Config.log snippet:

Trying source 1 (type makeSpec) of library opengl_es2 ...
None of [libGLESv2.so libGLESv2.a] found in [] and global paths.
None of [libEGL.so libEGL.a] found in [] and global paths.
None of [libIMGegl.so libIMGegl.a] found in [] and global paths.
None of [libsrv_um.so libsrv_um.a] found in [] and global paths.
  => source produced no result.

I'm really trying to fix it by myself, but i can't, i don't want to give up with this...

Thanks in advice for any reply.

For EGLS on the Beaglebone, I found this site to be useful:

These previous posts might be helpful to you as well:


For the error you are seeing, do you have the QMAKE environment variables set as the error suggests?  The should point to your sysroot location:
ERROR: The OpenGL functionality tests failed!
You might need to modify the include and library search paths by editing QMAKE_INCDIR_OPENGL[_ES2],
QMAKE_LIBDIR_OPENGL[_ES2] and QMAKE_LIBS_OPENGL[_ES2] in the mkspec for your platform.  


Cheers,

Jon

Hi Jon, thank you for the reply.

Thanks for the link, the first may be useful later, when this works.
The mailing links, are unavailale for me.

About the QMAKE variables, I try to change the paths on qmake.conf within the beagleboard device folder, but i dont know if I'm doing it wrong or something else because the error doesn't seem to change.

At least my configurations doesn't aply to those empty [].

None of [libGLESv2.so libGLESv2.a] found in [] and global paths.

Do you know how to edit those paths inside the ./configure command line to be sure be applied?

If they are doing cross compiling from a remote host, then should they not be using the BB specific libs under sysroot and not the host OpenGL libs?

Jon, i've looking the links you provided, in fact, i need how to make a configuration like this:

VC_LIBRARY_PATH         = $$[QT_SYSROOT]/opt/vc/lib
VC_INCLUDE_PATH         = $$[QT_SYSROOT]/opt/vc/include

QMAKE_LIBDIR_OPENGL_ES2 = $${VC_LIBRARY_PATH}
QMAKE_LIBDIR_EGL        = $$QMAKE_LIBDIR_OPENGL_ES2
QMAKE_LIBDIR_OPENVG     = $$QMAKE_LIBDIR_OPENGL_ES2

QMAKE_INCDIR_EGL        = \
                        $${VC_INCLUDE_PATH} \
                        $${VC_INCLUDE_PATH}/interface/vcos/pthreads \
                        $${VC_INCLUDE_PATH}/interface/vmcs_host/linux
QMAKE_INCDIR_OPENGL_ES2 = $${QMAKE_INCDIR_EGL}
QMAKE_INCDIR_OPENVG     = $${QMAKE_INCDIR_EGL}

QMAKE_LIBS_OPENGL_ES2   = -lGLESv2
QMAKE_LIBS_EGL          = -lEGL -lGLESv2
QMAKE_LIBS_OPENVG       = -lEGL -lOpenVG -lGLESv2


I think, please correct me if i'm wrong, i need to change the  in this folder:
sitara@workstation:/opt/qt5bbb/qt5/qtbase/mkspecs/devices/linux-beagleboard-g++$ ls
qmake.conf  qmake.conf.bkup  qmake.conf.edited  qmake.conf.save  qplatformdefs.h

(Some of those files are backup while i'm testing)

So, right now, my qmake.conf file is:

# Extra stuff (OpenGL, DirectFB, ...)
QMAKE_INCDIR_EGL        =
QMAKE_LIBDIR_EGL        =
QMAKE_INCDIR_OPENGL_ES2 = $${QMAKE_INCDIR_EGL}
QMAKE_LIBDIR_OPENGL_ES2 = $${QMAKE_LIBDIR_EGL}
QMAKE_INCDIR_OPENVG     = $${QMAKE_INCDIR_EGL}
QMAKE_LIBDIR_OPENVG     = $${QMAKE_LIBDIR_EGL}

QMAKE_LIBS_EGL          = -lEGL -lIMGegl -lsrv_um
QMAKE_LIBS_OPENGL_ES2   = -lGLESv2 $${QMAKE_LIBS_EGL}
QMAKE_LIBS_OPENVG       = -lOpenVG $${QMAKE_LIBS_EGL}

I try to fill those blanks with my paths, but no one works.

I think,  i'm working with the wrong file, or using wrong paths.
Do i see changes in the config.log with differents paths?
I search inside the log and when it shows the EGL error, only notice me that cant found the libraries on [ ] ,, and thats all, a pair of empty square brackets.

Again, thanks for the replies, i'm very glad to have someone to ask and talk, every site or forum with this troubles has at least a few years of inactivity.

Jeremias.

I've tried to set this up and I am seeing a similar issue.  I piped the output to tee and a log file and found it is not able to locate a lib which from what I can tell is there.

This is the configure statement I used:

./configure -no-gcc-sysroot -device linux-beagleboard-g++ -device-option CROSS_COMPILE=~/development/beaglbone/bbbuild/gcc-linaro-7.5.0-2019.12-x86_64_arm-linux-gnueabihf/bin/arm-linux-gnueabihf- -sysroot ~/development/beaglbone/bbbuild/sysroot -confirm-license -optimized-qmake -reduce-exports -release -make libs -prefix /usr/local/qt5bbb -extprefix /usr/local/qt5bbb -hostprefix /usr/local/qt5bbb -qt-zlib -qt-libpng -no-openssl -opengl es2 -eglfs -v |& tee ~/development/beaglbone/bbbuild/config-bbgr.log


This is what I see in the log file:

This seems to be what is causing the ending error for the ELS libs.
Note: -optimized-tools is not useful in -release mode.

You might need to modify the include and library search paths by editing QMAKE_INCDIR_OPENGL[_ES2],
QMAKE_LIBDIR_OPENGL[_ES2] and QMAKE_LIBS_OPENGL[_ES2] in the mkspec for your platform.

From what I can tell, the library is located in my sysroot:
$ ls -lt sysroot/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/libsystemd.so.0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 jomodev jomodev 20 May  9 10:08 sysroot/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/libsystemd.so.0 -> libsystemd.so.0.25.0


Perhaps it is not looking under the sysroot/lib folder but I am not sure.

I did ensure the Opengl ES libs are installed on the Beaglebone and ran rsync to bring in the changes to sysroot and the add the lib and include ref in the qmake.conf file:
               ~/opt/qt5bb/qt-everywhere-src-5.15.1/qtbase/mkspecs/devices/linux-beagleboard-g++/qmake.conf

# Extra stuff (OpenGL, DirectFB, ...)
QMAKE_INCDIR_EGL        = '/home/jomodev/development/beaglbone/bbbuild/sysroot/usr/include'
QMAKE_LIBDIR_EGL        = '/home/jomodev/development/beaglbone/bbbuild/sysroot/usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/libGLESv2.so.2.1.0'

I'm not sure why it is failing for the libsystemd.so.0 but will continue to look.

Cheers,

Jon

Based upon the OP's response, they are building on a Beagle -- but that
Beagle is running a Ubuntu image (or have some other ARM-based build
environment).

Hi again.
Yes, the BBB is running Ubuntu 18.04 for Arm.
The workstation is running Ubuntu 18.04 too.

I think I can run the Debian image from the board memory, I have the SD with the Ubuntu distro and I don't have other SD available rigth now.
I will try with that sysroot in a couple hours.
Thanks.

I have a Debian 9.13 Docker instance on Ubuntu 20.04 that I have been building so that might be an option.  I could try a 64-bit Debian VirtualBox image but only have a 32-bit in place now.  However, I am not seeing anything that would indicate it is an Ubuntu vs Debian thing but it is possible and the libsystemd.so.0 might be an indicator. I too have been using Ubuntu 18.04 for this exercise.

Cheers,

I'm working with 5.12.9, so I think isn't a version issue either.

Yeah, I just downloaded 5.12.9 and tied that but got the same end result but more info in the log.  
Also, I am following these two links and ensured both my Host and BB have the proper libs installed and such.

Also, I have edits the qmake.conf and added the following but still no go:

QMAKE_LFLAGS           += -Wl,-rpath-link,$$[QT_SYSROOT]/lib

# Extra stuff (OpenGL, DirectFB, ...)
QMAKE_INCDIR_EGL        = $$[QT_SYSROOT]/usr/include \

QMAKE_LIBDIR_EGL        = $$[QT_SYSROOT]/lib \
                          $$[QT_SYSROOT]/usr/lib \
                          $$[QT_SYSROOT]/usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf


QMAKE_INCDIR_OPENGL_ES2 = $${QMAKE_INCDIR_EGL}
QMAKE_LIBDIR_OPENGL_ES2 = $${QMAKE_LIBDIR_EGL}
QMAKE_INCDIR_OPENVG     = $${QMAKE_INCDIR_EGL}
QMAKE_LIBDIR_OPENVG     = $${QMAKE_LIBDIR_EGL}

QMAKE_LIBS_EGL          = -lEGL -lIMGegl -lsrv_um
QMAKE_LIBS_OPENGL_ES2   = -lGLESv2 $${QMAKE_LIBS_EGL}
QMAKE_LIBS_OPENVG       = -lOpenVG $${QMAKE_LIBS_EGL}

DISTRO_OPTS += hard-float

With 5.12.9 and all the libs and stuff in place, I now see this in the log file.

I know gl2.h is in sysroot so perhaps there is a Path not set properly.
$ find sysroot/ -name "gl2.h"

The adventure continues.

I don't know how path vars work in this kind of files, but, if you see that file, at the start includes an linux.conf file, that file also make reference to the $varPaths whom we are trying to especify.

Yeah, I tried with Debian 9.13 64-bit and it still shows the same error for the OpenGL ES libs. 

Must be missing something.

Well, i'm not sure if this is something useful, but, I try to use an older version of the Linaro compiler.
I was using 7.5 and i try 6.5
I think there's something weird updating links, because i change the ./configure, and the script still trying to use the 7.5v, look:

Okay, a bit of success.
With it picking up the older toolchain, look in the folders you are using for any '.qt*. files. There are files that get created as '.' when running the configure script.

For me,

I downloaded Qt 5.12.5 and unpacked it in a folder.
Then I created 3 folders for the prefix, extprefix and hostprefix:

prefix  ~/opt/qt512bb/install 
extprefix ~/opt/qt512bb/binaries  
hostprefix  ~/opt/qt512bb/tool

Then I created a build folder to build qt in and moved to that folder to build
mkdir -p ~/opt/qt512bb/build
cd ~/opt/qt512bb/build

Then I ran the configure script from the build folder as such.

../qt-everywhere-src-5.12.5/configure -platform linux-g++-64 -release -opengl es2 -device linux-beagleboard-g++ -device-option CROSS_COMPILE=~/develop/bbuild/gcc-linaro-7.5.0-2019.12-x86_64_arm-linux-gnueabihf/bin/arm-linux-gnueabihf- -sysroot ~/develop/bbuild/sysroot -opensource -confirm-license -make libs -prefix ~/opt/qt512bb/install -extprefix ~/opt/qt512bb/binaries -hostprefix ~/opt/qt512bb/tool -nomake tests -v -libdir ~/develop/bbuild/sysroot/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf


This was just to verify the config and make sure it passes the configure stage. Currently running make and will see if it compiles then will add the other items in the config. 
Also, I am using the default qmake.conf file.

That looks good.
In the meantime I try to fully understand what are you doing and how to replicate it, you say you will add the other items in the config later. How do you will do that? I have an VirtualBox snapshot on my laptop (another Qt installation) just after the -make step, so, to try re-run the ./configure plus -make combo when we can include OpenGL I just ran -make clean, but this don't solve that re-run ./configure doesn't seem to take all the new paths.
In the past, I opt to reinstall Ubuntu just for make sure the new installation will be clean, but i hate do that, i think that in certain moment i will not be able to do that anymore without expend another week configuring the IDE.

Thank you very much for your help.
Jeremias.

Okay, I think I have something that works.  This completes the configure step, completes make, and make install.
As far as the issue where it is still picking up the previous toolchain in your config, each time after I compile or run into an issue, I remove the build, the qt source, the toolchain folders and anything else that indicates it was touched during the build of qt. I had to remove the sysroot folder and resync the files from the Beaglebone at least once.

With my config, I found I was missing a couple of folders from the BB where there were files linked to other locations.  This is what I have for creating the sysroot for the BB.

mkdir -p sysroot/{lib,sbin,usr/{include,lib,bin},etc/alternatives}

rsync -avz deb...@192.168.7.2:/lib sysroot/

rsync -avz deb...@192.168.7.2:/sbin sysroot/

rsync -avz deb...@192.168.7.2:/usr/include sysroot/usr

rsync -avz deb...@192.168.7.2:/usr/lib sysroot/usr

rsync -avz deb...@192.168.7.2:/usr/bin sysroot/usr

rsync -avz deb...@192.168.7.2:/etc/alternatives sysroot/etc


Get this tool to fix relative links:
chmod +x sysroot-relativelinks.py
./sysroot-relativelinks.py sysroot

This is the qmake.conf that I am using

I'm trying to figure out what's wrong with the library.
PS: I tried removing the line you add to the conf file, just in case.

I had that issue but it seemed to be resolved by adding the following line in the qmake.conf file:
INCLUDEPATH += /home/bbbuild/develop/bbuild/gcc-linaro-7.5.0-2019.12-x86_64_arm-linux-gnueabihf/arm-linux-gnueabihf/include/c++/7.5.0  

Ensure you adjust the path, and other paths, to match your configuration.  This is fully qualified based on where the toolchain is installed on my system.

Cheers,

Jon

Ok! Checking the paths again...
The only difference I see against your setup is that I'm using the Arm8 version of the toolchain.

Okay, i owe you another coffee.
I corrected the paths, but forgot just the arm8.
Was: /opt/qt5129bbb/gcc-linaro-7.5.0-2019.12-x86_64_armv8l-linux-gnueabihf/arm-linux-gnueabihf/include/c++/7.5.0

Trying, again.

Per https://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/cpp/Wrapper-Headers.html
"include_next" says to: find the next file in the search path with this
name. That seems to indicate that the include file search path needs to be
correctly ordered -- the implication is that there is a modified stdlib.h
in the source being built, and it then wants to include the normal system
stdlib.h for completeness.

Dennis,

Yeah, that is the intent of  INCLUDEPATH since the location of the includes in the toolchain are in a different location than where Qt is looking.  I did see a post where it was suggested to remove the Default path but there were other comments in the same post where it did not work.  What I posted seems to work; at least in my config.

I don't understand this comment:
"
{Is it really necessary to include 8+ levels of quoting that have nothing
relevant to the current incident?}"

Dennis, to be honest, the quotes I see are only three little dots at the end of the mail that I simply ignore. I don't know where are you reading this, but I didn't realize that quotes may be annoying.
My apologies. 

Now running make again. Let's see what happens next.

Thanks again for the support.

Jeremias,

Which Beagleboard are you compiling for?  

My Beaglebone Black reports as an ARMv7 and not an ARMv8 so are you sure that is the correct toolchain for a BB Black.

debian@beaglebone:~$ cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep -i arm
model name      : ARMv7 Processor rev 2 (v7l)

I just checked that and you are right, my board is a BeaglBone Black with ARM v7.
I mixed the term cortex-8 with the Arm version.
So, I don't know why, but I've been working with this well.

I will correct it as soon as possible.

Thanks.

I read via the gmane NNTP server. According to my newsreader, the post
I'd responded to, and trimmed, had 1520 LINES of text in it.

I suspect whatever client you are using is simply masking quoted
material by not displaying it, but it is none-the-less being included in
replies.

And... I wasn't really targetting you with the complaint. It's a
general gripe I find in forums that didn't grow up with Usenet etiquette
(or "pay per minute" connections).

https://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc1855.txt
Section 2.1.1 for individual email (ie: one-to-one messages)
"""
- Be brief without being overly terse. When replying to a message,
include enough original material to be understood but no more. It
is extremely bad form to simply reply to a message by including
all the previous message: edit out all the irrelevant material.
"""
Section 3.1.1 for lists and Usenet (one-to-many messages)
"""
- If you are sending a reply to a message or a posting be sure you
summarize the original at the top of the message, or include just
enough text of the original to give a context. This will make
sure readers understand when they start to read your response.
Since NetNews, especially, is proliferated by distributing the
postings from one host to another, it is possible to see a
response to a message before seeing the original. Giving context
helps everyone. But do not include the entire original!
"""

Unfortunately... Then came Microsoft Outlook -- which sought to produce
a business ethic in which quoted material is the equivalent of a photocopy
attached to a snail-mail letter as a courtesy for the recipient (who should
already be familiar with the content, the copy just saves them looking up
archived mails for any details they forgot), and the entire reply is
provided "above" the copy.

I believe if you respond directly from the Google Groups Beagleboard Forum it will automatically add the previous conversation content.  If you extend the '...' then you will see what is being added.  I just respond directly in GMail and avoid the quotes unless I find them necessary.

Jeremias

If you want to take the discussion offline I am cool with that.

Hi again, sorry for the delay.

Well, i finally can build Qt with OpenGL. :D
A few hours later, the -make process finishes, I ran make install and all was perfect.
After that,  I upload to the BBB the /sysroot folder.
I try to build an example and it fails.
I configure QtCreator with the Qmake from /build/qtbase/bin/qmake.
I got a lot of errors about paths. I'm not able to try to fix them by now.

Warning: libpng16.so.16, needed by /opt/qt5129bbb/build/qtbase/lib/libQt5Gui.so, not found (try using -rpath or -rpath-link)

Unfortunately my company needs me in another area by now, so I must leave the BBB for a time, I really expect that doesn't be too long.
I'm infinitely grateful for your help and camaraderie.

I promise to write here again when I come back to the project.

Hope to read you soon again!

Regards, Jeremias.
