Hi All,

Is there a noble soul out there willing to spend some time in helping
me test out a feature on OSX?! :) The noble soul should have a working
qt source build setup on OSX.

I'm working on small feature for specifying custom DNS server to
QDnsLookup (QTBUG-30166). I wanted to test out the feature on OSX, but
I don't have a machine handy (it's tested on Windows and Linux).

Can someone with a working setup test the following patches for build failures?


It would be even more awesome if someone got the time to test out the
change with the modified "dnslookup" example in this patchset! :)

For testing with an IPv4 nameserver address, run:

$ ./examples/network/dnslookup/dnslookup -s www.google.com

For testing with an IPv6 nameserver address (if you have a working
IPv6 setup), run:

$ ./examples/network/dnslookup/dnslookup -s 2001:4860:4860::8888 www.google.com

In the output you should see a bunch of IPv4 address for the host name
passed (on Linux, to be doubly sure that the system configured
nameserver's are not being used, I used to comment out the entries in

Please let me know if you need more info.

Thanks for your time!
