    I have problem with the Qt Version. I have the SDK installed and I have all the files minus the qmake


    Any idea why this file is missing?

      Hello Ema,
      Qt is quite old. If I good understand Your request You don’t have qmake file? If yes it probably not correctly applied “bitbake meta-toolchain-qt5”. The correct file should have a size around 1Gbyte.
