So I have this new device I bought that runs linux and has an armv7 cpu.

Its said the CPU inside is an i.MX6q.


Ive pasted uname -a and cpuinfo below for you to see what this system is running.


Im trying to build a crosscompiler that I can run from an 64-bit Debian Wheezy or Ubuntu installation (whichever is easiest, has a guide for it or etc).

What exactly do I need to download and does some instructions exist for making a cross compiler for this cpu?
