    Default Building Qt5 SDK from source ... The entire SDK!

    Hi all,

    I'm looking for info on how to setup and build the entire SDK from source ... That means All particulate as to duplicate the installation done from a downloaded SDK installation.

    The last SDK Install was done with: "Qt 5.1.1 for Windows 32-bit (MinGW 4.8, OpenGL, 666 MB)".
    I would VERY much like to duplicate that installation with newer builds.

    I have already successfully cloned and built stable (5.2.0), Unfortunately that is only a small part of the SDK.

    How does one go about setting up and building the rest.

    I've searched but no hints to be found.

    The Qt Creator and Qt installer are in the Qt repository. If memory serves the installer and Qt Creator in the binary SDK distributions are built with VS2010. The installer also requires a static Qt build. You would be best reading/asking in the dev mailing list for precise details of versions included in the 5.2 RC and later snapshots.

    MinGW is not part of Qt so you need to source that from them and build that using their instructions (if they exist).
