Hi All,

I am usinq qt 3.3.7 with hp-ux 11.11 and aCC 3.7 in my application and following a document for installation of my application. There are 3 steps in installation :

qmake bviewng.pro
make qmake
make

Finally my application should get installed.
I got to know about 'qmake bviewn.pro' - it is used to generate Makefile, I didn't get to know why we are using make qmake, Could you please tell me about that.

The "make qmake" step seems strange. "qmake" is not normally a target for make. Typical command sequence to build is:

qmake project.pro
make

When we do "make qmake" all the Makefile's in subdirectories are created by their corresponding .pro's and finally the two options get merged like :
This
-D__STRICT_ANSI__ -D_HPUX_SOURCE

will be merged to
-D__STRICT_ANSI__D_HPUX_SOURCE

which will have some problems while doing the final make of the application.
Could you please suggest me for this.

My suggestion is to not use "make qmake". It is not necessary.
