how do i install gnu compiler collection on ubuntu 11.10? i have tried the commands
sudo apt-get build-essential
and it's saying invalid operation on build-eesential.
Why not use the Synaptic package manager GUI? Mis-spellings are much less likely...
it's supposed to be build-essential. my internet is too slow for me to install synaptic package manager using the internet. so is it build-essential or build-essentials?
You were close:
sudo apt-get install build-essential
