Known issues and oddities

Linker fails when using CPU transparency

If the linker doesn't find your libs for no good reason, you should add the following parameter when calling cmake to create the build dir:

-DCMAKE_CXX_LINK_FLAGS=\"-Wl,-rpath-link,/lib -Wl,-rpath-link,/usr/lib -Wl,-rpath-link,/usr/local/lib ...\"

(here the "..." means that you have to add one "-Wl,-rpath-link,/foo/lib" for each folder where the linker might need to look for libs)

Random segfaults or build hang using CPU transparency

In some cases you could experience crashes at build time coming from qdbusxml2cpp. The reasons are rather unclear so far but seem to be related to the linker. Current investigations indicates that it happens if your build is using "-g -O2" (or higher value for -O). If you're using any of the -g or -O options alone you should be fine.
