View Full Version : Install qt 4 when low on disc space

22nd February 2006, 09:47
I'm low on discspace :-(
But the compilation goes quite far though, so the idea is: if some parts are finished, can I remove some of the object files (.o) files to get more disc space?
Perhaps some will be recompiled, but hopefully it will only recompile what is acctually needed!

I'm doing this in win2000.

If I were you i would look for other ways to gain disk space.
How much disk space did you have before compilation?

Some ideas :
did you empty your trash bin?
you could compress your drive to save disk space or only some specific directories
you could make a zip-file of some directories.
you could write unnecessary files to a CD and put it back afterwards....

I've emptied the trash and removed everyunnessecery thing I could find.
The Qt dir is about 1,4 GB now. and I have 700 kb left.
Compress the drive is perhaps the best way.
Very annoying.

Avoid compiling debug libraries and examples. This will save you some (much) space.

uninstall / reinstall other software?

There's nothing left to uninstall. :eek:

How can I build without debugging?
how can I turn of building the examples?

Check out "configure -help".
