I'd like to build a project with QTCreator/SDK using the phone (Xperia X) for compiling. As for the moment I only have an aged eee-pc aspire netbook at my disposal which isn't capable of running VM's. I was able to add my phone as device in the SDK but has found a way to specify it as build platform for the project. The package I want to build for now is only an ambience. So dependencies are not very complex.

Is this even possible? If so, where do I start? In the wiki I couldn't find anything.

I don't know if qt creator is available on the phone (arm). The SDK seems to be 486 mode, and perhaps there is no arm package. But why would you need the SDK? There are all the development packages for arm already available.

If you insist to use the creator I found this guide which is for ubuntu, but would give you an idea how to get qt creator on any linux device. I hope all the required dependencies are available. It might be you would need to use older version for Qt5.6. This is AFAIK the one used in Sailfish X.

Thanks but that sounds like a very cumbersome way to get ambiences created

If your laptop can run linux, you can try my docker method:

Maybe this can help you:

It looks to me, like that guy had the same issue and built ambiances on his device.

thanks, looks very promising.

maybe i'll find a way to avoid copying stuff back and forth to BUILDROOT
