I am cross compiling a Linux kernel for my Raspberry Pi from an AMD64 Ubuntu 13.04 system. I found this page to be of help (How do I cross-compile the kernel on a Ubuntu host?), but I still get errors about a compiler that does not seem to exist for Ubuntu. Below is my output.

I install every GCC ARM compiler available for Ubuntu (that I saw). The compilation seems to require arm-linux-gnueabi-gccgcc, but I have not found such a compiler. The StackExchange page mentioned above and many pages on the Internet suggest to do what I have done. Did I miss something? How do I fix this issue?

you should try again, replacing:
