Description Libor Pechacek 2020-11-23 09:47:54 UTC
OpenOrienteering Mapper (a Qt-based application built with CMake) fails to start on Fedora 33. The issue was tracked down by Mapper developers to be an instance of LTO induced miscompilation that was thoroughly discussed by experts in and The OO Mapper workaround for Fedora is to disable LTO for the moment.

Please revisit your LTO implementation and the toolchain so that Qt applications build correctly again.
