VLC fails to build its +qt5 variant

VLC alone builds fine on all buildbots, but the qt5 variant seems to have trouble, at least on El Capitan (being the only system tested this on now):

Weird seeing Qt4 stuff being built, although the qt5 variant is wanted.

To be honest, I'm not sure why I have preserved the Qt variants. They built at some point, but there's something fundamentally wrong in how they handle the event loop on OS X (IIRC not on the main thread where it has to be).

comment:2 Changed 2 years ago by mkae (Marko Käning)

So, perhaps it's a good idea to keep some notes in VLC's Portfile hinting that out?!

comment:3 Changed 2 years ago by RJVB (René Bertin)

The variant description is clear enough already, don't you think?

   qt4: Build using Qt4 UI. This will use qt4-mac. Experimental and probably dysfunctional
     * conflicts with qt5
   qt5: Build using Qt5 UI. This will use qt5-mac. Experimental and probably dysfunctional
     * conflicts with qt4

Edit: clear enough, and clearly dated too. :)

Yes, it indeed is, sorry for not checking before commenting. :)

So, shall we close this issue as "WontFix" for now and let anyone reopen it if there are new suggestions how to tackle this?

comment:5 Changed 2 years ago by RJVB (René Bertin)

Fine with me.

In fact, I think we could remove the Qt variants. IIRC they're not supported for Mac by VideoLan, and they have little interest since there's a good native interface. We can also wait and see when VLC 3 is released.
