All new Symbian SDKs are now distributed inside the new QtSDK, so that should be my primary build environment. The new QtSDK also includes an updated version of GCCE (4.x), and new sbsv2 build, which is a lot better than the old symbian abld-build. With this tutorial you can still build your old symbian projects from mmp-files.
Here’s an example of my setEnv.bat. In this case the QtSDK was installed into c-drive
1 2 3 4 5 6 SET PATH=C:\QtSDK\Symbian\tools\sbs\bin;C:\QtSDK\Symbian\tools\perl\bin;C:\QtSDK\Symbian\SDKs\Symbian3Qt473\epoc32\gcc\bin;C:\QtSDK\Symbian\SDKs\Symbian3Qt473\epoc32\tools;%PATH% SET EPOCROOT=\QtSDK\Symbian\SDKs\Symbian3Qt473\ SET SBS_MINGW=C:\QtSDK\Symbian\tools\sbs\win32\mingw SET SBS_HOME=C:\QtSDK\Symbian\tools\sbs SET SBS_GCCE441BIN=C:\QtSDK\Symbian\tools\gcce4\bin call C:\QtSDK\Symbian\SDKs\Symbian3Qt473\bin\qtenvS3.bat
The sbsv2 does not understand PRJ_PLATFORMS lists, so you’ll have to remove those. I left only PRJ_MMPFILES definitions in the bld.inf files.
Here’s a list of couple of useful sbsv2 build command
1 2 3 sbs -c armv5_udeb_gcce - debug build with GCCE sbs reallyclean - cleans everthing sbs clean
To build with qmake from command line you’ll only need to run the qtenvs3.bat located at QtSDK\Symbian\SDKs\Symbian3Qt473\bin
Here’s a list of couple useful build commands:
1 2 3 qmake -spec symbian-sbsv2 - uses sbsv2 make debug-gcce - makes debug with GCCE make distclean - cleans everthing
I don’t know why anyone would still like to use the old abld-build, but it still seems to be working with the new QtSDKs too.
- First add a new device for the QtSDK, and set it into default
1 2 devices -add C:\QtSDK\Symbian\SDKs\Symbian3Qt473 C:\QtSDK\Symbian\SDKs\Symbian3Qt473 @Symbian3_Qt473:com.nokia.Symbian3_QtSDK473]
- Then set the new device as default
devices -setdefault @Symbian3_Qt473:com.nokia.Symbian3_QtSDK473
- Set the new EPCOROOT
- build with able-build as you used to.
