I'm trying to install the MeeGo development SDK and when I run the command:

# mad -t meego-core-armv7l-1.1 qmake

it gives me the error that -unix is deprecated.

I know absolutely nothing about unix/linux and I'm just following the instructions from here:

Does anyone know what to do?

Are you sure "is deprecated" is an error and not just a warning? – grawity Nov 7 '10 at 13:35
hmm, maybe. i am a complete linux newbie and have no idea. i don't know how to check if thats the error or if its something else. – Thomas Clayson Nov 7 '10 at 15:34
Probably just a warning, referring to something called a "UNIX Domain Socket" - it's like a TCP/IP connection but it doesn't go through the networking stack, it's local only. – LawrenceC Nov 7 '10 at 16:04

This is a qmake problem. basically what happened is that you passed a -unix flag into qmake.

This is not an error & just a warning. You can consider editing the file /usr/lib/madde/linux-i686/madlib/ to remove the -unix flag.

But as the usual saying go, if it ain't broken, don't fix it.
