Hello guys

I am trying to cross compile the C++ movehead example from SDK, my machine is a VM UBUNTU 18.04.6 LTS.

I created the crosscompile toolchain and configured it in qibuild. The cmake path is defined in cmakelists and when I try to build the program, the following error appears:

* (1/1) Building movehead in Debug

Scanning dependencies of target movehead

[ 50%] Linking CXX executable sdk/bin/movehead

../lib/ error adding symbols: File in wrong format

collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

CMakeFiles/movehead.dir/build.make:131: recipe for target 'sdk/bin/movehead' failed

make[2]: *** [sdk/bin/movehead] Error 1

CMakeFiles/Makefile2:67: recipe for target 'CMakeFiles/movehead.dir/all' failed

make[1]: *** [CMakeFiles/movehead.dir/all] Error 2

Makefile:129: recipe for target 'all' failed

make: *** [all] Error 2

This is the CMakelists file

# Set _SDK_ROOT_DIR to the dirname of this file (/path/to/sdk)

get_filename_component(_SDK_ROOT_DIR ${CMAKE_CURRENT_LIST_FILE} PATH)

# Libraries are looked for in /path/to/sdk/lib,

# headers in /path/to/sdk/include, and so on.

set(qibuild_DIR "${_SDK_ROOT_DIR}/share/cmake/qibuild" INTERNAL CACHE "" FORCE)


# This include enable you to use our CMake framework


# Create an executable named movehead,

# with the source file : movehead.cpp

qi_create_bin(movehead movehead.cpp)

# Tell CMake that movehead depends on ALCOMMON and ALPROXIES

# This will set the libraries to link movehead with,

# the include paths, and so on

qi_use_lib(movehead ALCOMMON ALPROXIES)

The movehead.cpp file and others needed for qibuild are at:
