Long tag names

There are impossible for regular moderators deleting too long tag names.
Probably needed add limit for tag names?

Forum descriptions are outdated?

by: trusktr | Views: 56 | Forum: website

For example, perhaps the description for the “Mobile and Embedded” forum should include “iOS”, “Windows Phone”, “Android”, and “Blackberry” somewhere in the description instead of just “Symbian, MeeGo”.

Also, in this day and age of so many different devices with varying sizes and resolutions, perhaps a forum called “Crossplatform Development” or “Universal Development” should be made so people can ask device-independent questions. The description can be along the lines of “Discuss device-independent crossplatform app development here.”.

How to improve the site?

by: Tero Kojo | Views: 2404 | Forum: website | Last post by JKSH, July 11, 2014


I’ve now been looking around, having discussions and wondering about things, and have now come to some form of understanding on what should be done with the site.

The things I’ve read on the wiki about the ideas that have been put down for the future of the site [] pretty much ring true to me.

Looking at the infrastructure there are a number of actions that need to be investigated and taken:

  • Moving the wiki to the MediaWiki that is currently running at [] (yes, I was just as surprised as anyone to find it there. It is locked at the moment, but it’s there)
  • Cleaning the current userbase, there are user ids that have not been used in a long time. Cleaning needs to happen to make other actions possible
  • Moving the userbase to the Atlassian tools that are running and in use for bugreports and codereview
  • Moving the static pages like the documentation to another CMS (WordPress comes to mind with it’s large and active developer base)
  • Moving the forums to another platform (if WordPress for the static part, then bbPress would be a natural choise, but that needs a discussion) This task is actually pretty big, because we need to preserve the history. Also this needs to happen at the same time as the userbase move, or it needs to be co-ordinated with it.

As you can see the theme here is moving away from expression engine. The current install is pretty hacked in every corner, and with the original developers gone, there are things that can not be updated without a prohibitive amount of work. That is part of the reason I have been closing old bugs, with the current platform there is fairly little that can be done easily.

Having task specific tools for each part of the site (wiki, static pages, forum) should also provide a better possibility for anyone to advance to maintain some aspect of the site (compare with the current problems in giving out moderator rights)

[CLOSED] help with using Qt 5.3.0 REALLY CONFUSED!

by: ss1306 | Views: 137 | Forum: website

I have just started trying to learn using Qt for embedded Linux development and I am trying to run the provided examples and demos by QT on the TI Sitara AM335x board from Qt Creator. I used the online installer to install Qt on Ubuntu and then using the documentation provided on TI I have managed to establish remote connection with Sitara and run a basic hello world program and webview using tabs as documented in the link.

While trying to run the sample demos or examples provided , i configure the projects with the same settings I used for the above projects. On building and deployment they never seem to run. One of the errors was – /home/siddarth/Qt/Examples/Qt-5.3/widgets/widgets/calculator/button.cpp:41: error: QtWidgets: No such file or directory

I copied the QTWidgets folder from the lib in the QTfolder to the libraries in qtopia folder in Ti Sitara location that were being used by GDB and the GCC. I also copied the QT Core fodler but now I am getting the error – /opt/ti-sdk-am335x-evm- error: #error “You must build your code with position independent code if Qt was built with -reduce-relocations. “ “Compile your code with -fPIC or -fPIE.”

Can someone please help me as to what i am doing wrong!?

[andreyc EDIT] Please do not duplicate the questions. I’ve closed this one.
