comment What exactly is a chroot? Is it similar to a simultaneous dual boot?
@mathematician1975: You could. Not sure how well that would work though. What the chroot can offer you us something like that, where you have a new development environment for the device. Because the device's code is (most likely) not written for your architecture, you'd want to just get an environment where you trick your compiler, etc. that they are on your embedded machine, so they'll build for it. Take a look at this: help.ubuntu.com/community/BasicChroot

Dang. That is one annoying setup. I think you should just try @user4124 suggests, and if that doesn't work, build a new version of GCC using your current version.

Can you try another distro? Debian 4.0 they said they supported.

It says that it contains an x86 processor. You could shoot into the dark, and hope it works. That's done wonders for me.

What's the processor? Linux supports almost everything. PowerPC: ✓. ARM: ✓. x86: ✓. x86-64: ✓. AMD64: ✓.

Hm. If you'll comment after you try. Why can't you upgrade? Ubuntu isen't like Windows. Old versions die fast, rather than being supported for 10 years. You need to upgrade to the newest LTS version, 12.04.
