I have finally managed to correctly patch configure-ng.py to have all
the debian configury changes as well as to correctly find multi-arch
paths on Debian/Ubuntu systems and successfully compile pyqt4
227b3c0affb4 snapshot against Qt5 (Raring) with all modules that are
available for Qt5.
My packaging branch is here:
And the binary packages are available from my PPA:
I am hoping to land thin into ubuntu proper early next cycle (approx.
late may / early june).
I have two questions:
* What is upstream preference for a package name?
- given that everything will not switch to qt5 overnight we need to
keep python-qt4 compiled against qt4, yet we want to start providing
qt5 variant. Will pyqt5 be source incompatible with python-qt4-qt5?
* How to handle co-installing qt4 & qt5 variants of pyqt?
Given that currently pyqt4 uses PyQt4 name-space regardless if it's
compiled against qt4 or qt5.
