hello,

I'm going to compile KDE. It just came a message with which is searched for Windows versions. I'm afraid of an attack. Is it ok that this check happens?

I can't make sense of this thread.

Hi michi-monster,

it is only a check if it is being compiled on Windows, because KDE/Qt is also available for Windows.
No attack, nothing to be afraid of. :D

First of all, no one is building KDE, which is a community, not a software.
Second, the screenshot shows build of Qt5, which is available on all kinds of platforms.
Third, I see no "checks" here, only build flags - obviously style related - determining the outcome of the build.

Right. It is checked if several Windows widget styles are defined in that Qt5 build.
If compiled on Windows they mostly would be.
