I'm trying to setup an Ubuntu VM with Jenkins for CI to build my project on changes . However, when I attempt to perform a build, I seem to get the following error : 


/usr/bin/qmake -spec unsupported/blackberry-armv7le-qcc -o arm/Makefile ProjectName.pro CONFIG+=device
Could not find mkspecs for your QMAKESPEC(unsupported/blackberry-armv7le-qcc) after trying:


I checked under /usr/share/qt4/mkspecs/unsupported, I can't find any blackberry-armv7le-qcc. How do I get this spec? Is this supposed to have come from the install? 


Please help. Thanks.

I may have found the solution to this, I checked my windows install of the ndk and see that the mkspecs are located inside the target_10_0_9_386\qnx6\usr\share\qt4\mkspecs folder. 


So on my Ubuntu VM, I created a symbolic link as below : 


ln -s <my ndk install directory>/target_10_0_9_1101/qnx6/usr/share/qt4/mkspecs/unsupported /usr/share/qt4/mkspecs/unsupported


Note: You may need to rename your existing unsupported directory in /usr/share/qt4/mkspecs to something else before creating the link above.
