Hi Christ,

   Sorry I didn't see this mail before I reply the previous mail.

   Right now we only build images and toolchain on x86.
   Maybe you can discuss this issue on the mailing list of OpenEmbedded.
   Paste your error message and ask for someone who has experience on
   this :-)

Best Regards,
