Hi Fabien
I have been trying to build with Qt creator but not having much luck. I get down to step 8
but can't generate the cmakecache.txt properly. As far as I can see I have followed the earlier steps verbatum and I have read the instructions for a cmakelists project which just says the same as what you have listed.
Any other clues?

> 7- Create a new project File/New File or Project/Version
> Control/Subversion Checkout, and give the following url:
> https://stellarium.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/stellarium/trunk/stellarium
> and tell him to put in the directory of your choice: in my case, I

> 8- Once the source code is checked out, Qt Creator automatically
> detects a cmake-based project and launch the CMake Wizard. I tell him
> to build stellarium in C:\prog\stellarium\builds\qtcreator-build .
> Then run cmake using the MinGW target.
> 9- If everything went well, click on the "build all" button in Qt
> Creator, and wait that everything is build.
> 10- Finally, before running, got to "Projects/Run Settings/Show
> Details" and set the Working Directory to C:\prog\stellarium\
> 11- Run and enjoy :)
