Question Problems in qt


Hey all!

I am trying to get qt3 to work on my debian system.

I am trying to 'compile' hello.cpp (from C++ GUI Programming with Qt 3):
#include <qapplication.h>
#include <qlabel.h>

int main (argc, char *argv[]) {

QApplication app (argc, argv);
QLabel *label = new QLabel ("Hello Qt!", 0);
app.setMainWidget (label);
label->show();
return app.exec();
}

But in the command promp i get:
$ qmake -project
$ make
g++ -o hello -L/usr/share/qt3/lib -L/usr/X11R6/lib -lqt-mt -lXext -lX11 -lm
/usr/lib/gcc-lib/i486-linux/3.3.5/../../../crt1.o(.text+0x18): In function `_start':
../sysdeps/i386/elf/start.S:98: undefined reference to `main'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [hello] Error 1
$

I have absolutely no clue what this mean ???

My Makefile looks like this:
#############################################################################
# Makefile for building: hello
# Generated by qmake (1.07a) (Qt 3.3.4) on: Tue Nov 1 19:45:55 2005

Hi, and welcome to LQ!

How did you install Qt, which steps did you take to do so?


Cheers,
Tink

P.S.: Would you mind if I moved this to the programming forum?

You don't have your .cpp file in SOURCES in Makefile. That's why it doesn't add it what results in the lack of main().

ok first step you got hello.cpp
i make a few small changes to line 4
Code:
int main (int argc, char **argv) {
second step make hello.pro
Code:
TEMPLATE	= app
TARGET		= hello

CONFIG		+= qt warn_on release

HEADERS		= 
SOURCES		= hello.cpp
third step type
qmake -o Makefile hello.pro
then
make
then
./hello
to run it and see the perty application

Thumbs up

Okay, now it works! Thanks for your help =) !!!

I understand the one ot the problems (int argc instead of just argc) but I don't really understand the *magic
with qmake, .pro files and Makefiles. Do you recommend any books or online resources to read up on to understand theses things.

Once more, thanks for the help. LQ RULES!
