Description Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2017-11-30 01:17:08 UTC
Qt4 is dead and going away. Please check if the code is able to build against Qt5 or if a newer release is available.

Well, with some minor adjustments it would be.
Though someone, who uses this app, should test if this is a valid change.

While 'setSingleShot' is a trivial change, the other thing is a guess.
The guess is 'AFAICT in *none* of the cases (qt, gtk, x11) gui is actually in use, only thing that matters is a main loop'.

Assuming above, QCoreApplication should suffice (reducing dep to qtcore:5) and comparing with gtk case, the change to 'processEvents' seems valid.

On that note, given above assumption, properly ported gtk part shouldn't be using anything more than gio.

Additional catch might be '-fPIC' req for 'reduce-relocations' case...
That one might be tricky...

@Rafał, did you add some additional changes to configure to make it build?
