Follow-up Comment #7, patch #3367 (project freeciv): I've had gui-qt in my trunk builds for a while. Now this is in, I'm getting: pages.cpp: In member function ‘void fc_client::create_network_page()’: pages.cpp:172: error: ‘class QLineEdit’ has no member named ‘setPlaceholderText’ pages.cpp:173: error: ‘class QLineEdit’ has no member named ‘setPlaceholderText’ It seems the method 'setPlaceholderText' was introduced in Qt 4.7 <http://doc.trolltech.com/4.6/qlineedit.html#placeholderText-prop>. I'm on Ubuntu Linux 10.04, and it seems I have Qt 4.6.2. My distro is now quite old (it's an LTS, but not the latest LTS), so I don't feel aggrieved not to be able to build the Qt client, but I guess we need some configure checks and advertised minimum versions of things.
As Qt-client is all new client with no existing userbase, it's not a problem to make Qt requirements higher - those who cannot use it can use gtk2-, and sdl-clients just as they currently do. Anyway, please open new ticket about configure check & documentation update. I have some network problems currently (seems a bit like someone else using same IP) and cannot load gna trackers. Attached patch works for me in that the updated Qt-check still success. Can you test if it fails properly for you? - ML
