Build Options:
-- static
- add "-config static" to the qmake call to build a static binary. Note that
- this also requires that you have a statically built version of Qt.
-- dbg
- add "-config dbg" to build with debug symbols.
-- silent
- add "-config silent" to the qmake call. This is an undocumented feature of
- Qt itself. Note that this doesn't seem to work on Windows and Mac OS X until
- recent versions of Qt.
+There are no build options to set by the user. If your Qt installation is not
+in the PATH or a standard search location you might need to set
+CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH to point to it.
Installation / Deployment:
-Rockbox Utility is build as all-in-one binary. This means for distribution
-you need:
-- RockboxUtility (main binary)
-- rbutil_*.qm (translation files, only for non-static builds)
-You don't need any other files like configuration files, especially
-rbutil.ini which will get included into the binary.
-The script utils/common/ automates building deployment
-binaries. For a complete list of paths to get from svn to build please check
-its source.
+For deployment the generated build system contains a target
+deploy_RockboxUtility (there's also a target deploy which will also deploy
+other tools.) Depending on the system deployment will create a zip file
+(Windows), dmg (MacOS) or AppImage (Linux).
+The script utils/common/ automates building a source archive.
+For a complete list of paths to get from the repository to build please check
