    Gettting gcc

    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?

    Thanks,
    Brian

    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.

    linux-headers-2.6-386

    The kernel source package is called linux-source-2.6
