I need to port a Qt project from MS Visual Studio 2010 to Linux (Debian). In VS 2010 I have Qt v.4.8.1, but in Debian it is Qt v.4.6.1. This difference prevents me from porting, as some features are not present in 4.6.1.
In Debian I am using the stable Squeeze repository. My experience with this OS, and Linux in general, is zero.
Because the highest available version of Qt in the Squeeze repo is 4.6.1, I decided to enable multiple repositories, and get the more recent package from Wheezy instead.
To add Wheezy I performed the following actions:
/etc/apt/sources.list, where I included:
- deb http:// ftp.debian.org/debian/ wheezy main deb-src http://
- ftp.debian.org/debian/ wheezy main
- APT::Default-Release "stable"
- APT::Cache-Limit "50000000"
However, it hasn't worked. I can't select the needed package from Wheezy because when I open Synaptic I get this error:
Wow, you exceeded the number of descriptions this APT is capable of
I don`t know how to solve with this problem.
All I need is to upgrade Qt in Debian. Am I doing this the hard way? Is there a much simpler solution?
