I'd like to develop Qt 4.7 based applications running on my arm-linux MCU. However, I'm not sure if this Qt 4.7 supports the following two things:

  1. my Linux 2.6.37 kernel
  2. my Ti3530-cortexA8 MCU.

I know it's hard to get a conclusion here so I'd like to know where I can find such references.

Kernel versions don’t really matter most of the time. Qt usually talks to the X server instead. – Chris Warrick Jun 8 '13 at 9:35
@Kwpolska For example. If QT want to display something, it will talk to the X server. However, the X server also need to talk to the Linux kernel to actually perform the displaying. So Linux kernel version does matter, does not it? – henryyao Jun 9 '13 at 0:51
Not for Qt, but for Xorg. That’s two different things. – Chris Warrick Jun 11 '13 at 15:45

I would start with this query on the Qt website. The first link goes to the 4.8 documentation but you can go to that page and change the URL so that it goes to 4.7 to see the supported platforms/architectures that Qt supports.


I would do additional searches on the qt-project.org website to see how well that particular CPU is supported.
