Hi David, I've just tried to build the soft float version following the instructions on the wiki. However when doing a 'gradle -PCOMPILE_TARGETS=armv6sf'. It complains 'Error: missing tool packages: [arm-linaro-4.7.tgz]'.
I assume the shellscript that downloads the cross compiler tools is missing some libraries (?). Installing 'gcc-arm-linux-gnueabi' didn't solve it either.
