View Full Version : compiling c programs with live cd

December 12th, 2006, 11:40 PM
Can I write programs (in C) and compile them with gcc on a system booted with live cd. I tried doing this, but I got something like gcc not found. I did a
dpkg -l|grep gcc and found that gcc is present:confused:

Do I need to install ubuntu on hard disk in order to write programs and compile them.

You need to install the package build-essential (which is available on the cd even if you don't have an internet connection),
