so seems you want to build images in a "cross" way, and also use lucid
For using lucid as source: linaro officially started on top of
maverick; in general there shouldn't be a problem to produce rootfs
etc. from lucid repositories using linaro tools; however, it was never
tested and might require adjustments to seeds and backport of our
overlay packages and maybe a few other things that don't come to my
For building linaro rootfs and hwpack in a cross fashion:
* hwpacks should be buildable on your x86 machine without anything like that.
* rootfs using live-build should work in a full system emulation qemu
similarly to natively building rootfs.
* rootfs... using live-build on x86 with qemu-arm-static chroot's
might have some problems here and there, but unless you include
packages like mono - which has problems with the host /proc fs - those
should be fixable.
* for now safest way of building linaro rootfs is still native.
Also check with james_w, salgado or mwhudson (IRC nicks) about the
status of our cross-image building efforts.
