View Full Version : Gettting gcc
December 20th, 2004, 06:21 AM
I have installed ubuntu yesterday and it went pretty painless. However, I need to compile a driver to get my usb wireless working on that machine. I've already seen that gcc is not installed by default and the solutions I've seen mention using the apt-install mechanism. But I can't use that since I don't have internet access on that machine yet. How can I download the correct gcc packages?

sudo apt-get install build-essential
Or get it through synaptic. It is on the cd.

Thanks, after I posted, I was able to figure that out on my very own . Now I believe I need the kernel sources to compile this puppy. Where would I find those?

You can use the kernel-headers, instead.
The kernel source package is called linux-source-2.6
