    Default Compiling Qt 4.8.2 results in "ld.exe: final link failed: Memory exhausted"

    I'm trying to compile Qt 4.8.2 from sources on Windows 7 x64 with MinGW GCC 4.7.1 (downloaded from http://nuwen.net/mingw.html). The machine has 8GB installed memory. To compile I simply run configure.exe and mingw32-make with all defaults. After a while during the compilation process I get the error "ld.exe: final link failed: Memory exhausted" and the compilation process halts. What could be causing this and how could I fix it? Thanks.

    How much free space do you have on your C:?

    50GB. It's an SSD drive.

    Would you care to share the context of the error message? Otherwise we could guess all day which components are involved.

    I'll have to try and compile it again, but it varies I suppose. I've tried compiling it twice and the first time I recall having both QtCore4.dll and QtGui4.dll in the bin directory and the second time I only had QtCore4.dll (IIRC, one of them was missing anyway), in fact the second time there were far fewer DLL files in the bin directory, so it seems to be failing at different points. I'm expecting it to fail at different point on the third try as well. I'll post the full error message when and if it fails again. Just started configure.exe (edit: On a clean installation of course, removed the old directory and extracted the files again)...

    I just tried compiling it for the 3rd time. This time I didn't get the "memory exhausted" error though:

    So how could I get past this error message then?

    At least I got far enough that I got moc.exe, qmake.exe and all the DLLs I'm gonna need. I just tried compiling a simple project and it worked fine and the executable runs just fine. Am I good to go or should I bother with this error and see the compilation process succeed?

    Thanks again.

    With compile errors we can't help you without code, specifically the location noted in the error.
    But from the sound of it, it looks like includes are missing.

    I downloaded the code from here: http://qt.nokia.com/downloads/

    Direct link: http://releases.qt-project.org/qt4/s...-src-4.8.2.zip

    The directory is C:\Qt\4.8.2\src\3rdparty\javascriptcore\JavaScriptCore\wtf

    I haven't modified anything or even touched anything. All I did was
    1) download the source from above links
    2) extract zip to C:\Qt\4.8.2
    3) run configure.exe
    4) run mingw32-make

    How can there be errors like this in the source in the first place? Shouldn't the Qt team supply sources that compile without me having to fix their missing includes and fix whatever else errors in the code?

    Anyhow, here's the lines in TypeTraits.h that cause the error:

    Qt Code:
    1. #if (defined(__GLIBCXX__) && (__GLIBCXX__ >= 20070724) && defined(__GXX_EXPERIMENTAL_CXX0X__)) || (defined(_MSC_VER) && (_MSC_VER >= 1600))
    2. #include <type_traits>
    3. #endif
    4.  
    5. // ...
    6.  
    7. #if (defined(__GLIBCXX__) && (__GLIBCXX__ >= 20070724) && defined(__GXX_EXPERIMENTAL_CXX0X__)) || (defined(_MSC_VER) && (_MSC_VER >= 1600))
    8.  
    9. // GCC's libstdc++ 20070724 and later supports C++ TR1 type_traits in the std namespace.
    10. // VC10 (VS2010) and later support C++ TR1 type_traits in the std::tr1 namespace.
    11. template<typename T> struct HasTrivialConstructor : public std::tr1::has_trivial_constructor<T> { }; // <-- line 173
    12. template<typename T> struct HasTrivialDestructor : public std::tr1::has_trivial_destructor<T> { }; // <-- line 174
    13.  
    14. #else
    15. // ...
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 

    The other file references in the error message are just #includes that all lead to this file.

This time I didn't get the error about the type_traits and I didn't get an error about the _Unwind_Resume, but this time it stopped to another error about ambiguity once again in src\3rdparty\javascriptcore\JavaScriptCore\wtf, in file HashTable.h, on line 272, IIRC, that has this code:
