Description Andreas Sturmlechner gentoo-dev 2017-12-28 19:44:47 UTC
Qt4 is dead and going away. Are there any signs of upstream porting to Qt5? If not, maybe it is time to drop the option.

Instead of disabling, the following hunk (diff over pre-removal) made it rely on whatever default the gle buildsystem chooses:

instead fixes the build for me. This explicitly disables Qt and does not try to build the qgle GUI executable at all. Since I do not require the GUI, this is ok for me. For people interested in the GUI, this will be a regression.
