There are various questions available in AskUbuntu related to Cross compiling. They were not of much help to me.

I used to work on gcc-4.5/4.6 for ARM. It was available in Ubuntu repo under the name gcc-4.*-arm-linux-gnueabi

My host linux is running on Ubuntu-12.04. When I planned to move to the latest GCC cross compilers of version 4.7/4.8, it was found that these were the only list of packages available in repo:


I could not find a version specifically for ARM compilers. gcc-4.*-multilib must be the package that handles all the cross compiling stuff. How could I use this package to cross compile for ARM on soft-float

I could not fetch much information from search engines. Even links that would help with my problem are appreciated.
