make xconfig asks for qt installation


I'm trying to configure a kernel and when I type "make xconfig" it comes back with the following error:

Code:
 CHECK   qt
* Unable to find the QT4 tool qmake. Trying to use QT3
*
* Unable to find any QT installation. Please make sure that
* the QT4 or QT3 development package is correctly installed and
* either qmake can be found or install pkg-config or set
* the QTDIR environment variable to the correct location.
*
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `scripts/kconfig/.tmp_qtcheck', needed by `scripts/kconfig/qconf.o'.  Stop.
make: *** [xconfig] Error 2
I tried installing libqt4-core but it still comes back with this same error. Any ideas?

Hi doughyi8u,

You need to install qt development (qt-devel) package.

I'm using Debian. Do you happen to know the package name?

I was having this problem, too on Debian, even after installing qt4-dev-tools and qt4-qmake. You need to install pkg-config with apt, also

Or, just use 'make menuconfig'. It only requires ncurses, which is probably already installed.

On Debian 8 (jessie) I got it working by installing the qt5-default package.

jepjep, you need to look closer at posting dates before replying.

Thumbs up

ondoho, yes, I read them before posting.

If I came here looking for a solution, it is probable that someone else comes here again for the same, so I decided publishing last method to make "make xconfig" work.

Regards.

make gconfig will work with GTK.
make nconfig is nicer than make menuconfig.
