View Full Version : [ubuntu] gcc-4.4-base and libgcc1 dependency problem despite karmic update

February 9th, 2010, 06:48 PM

I am trying to install the gcc package using Ubuntu 9.10, but fail to do so because of an dependency error, which seems to go in a circle. gcc-4.4-base needs libgcc1 before installation, and vice versa. Downloading the recently updated karmic packages did not help. Any suggestions?

Thank you

An ugly hack:
-Download all the dependency .debs from http://packages.ubuntu.com/
-Put them all in a folder and cd into it.
-Do a

sudo dpkg -i ./*
