Cannot link to mvSDK on 845

Hi everyone, 

I'm trying to use the machine vision SDK 1.2.7 on the Snapdragon 845.

I wrote a very basic first function to make sure I can compile and link properly, but I can't seem to get it right.

My linker complains that:

This sounds like I'm working with the wrong .so files or compiling for the wrong architecture, right?

Since the .ipk I downloaded only contains sample apps for 8x74 and 8x96, I'm getting the feeling that maybe the library I'm using is the wrong one? Where can I find the .so for the 845? Is there a sample application for the 845? I downloaded this one:

BTW: I'm running a yocto-based BSP for the Intrinsyc 845 Dev Kit

Any pointers would be warmly welcomed :D

I resolved this myself. 

In order to help anyone with the same issues, the problem was that the libraries are compiled for armv7 (32bit), while the 845 is an armv8 (64bit). After telling yocto to compile my application for 32bit, it linked just fine.


Thread can be closed.

Thanks for posting this follow-up.  We will update the documentation for now.  The 64-bit version will come in the near future but no date is set yet.
