problem with cpp and gcc
I installed the Debian Woody using the 20-floppies installation method.
Now, I am trying to install the x-window-system.
What I did is I download the .deb for x-window-system and install it. It has dependency for a lot of other things which I installed slowly.
One of the dependency is x-window-system-core. However, when I want to install x-window-system-core, it is dependent on base-client, which is inturn depend on cpp.
I tried to install cpp, but keep getting the error
cpp is not installed.
Package cpp-2.95 is not configured yet.
When I checked the Debian website, there seems to have infinite loop of dependency. h t t p : / /packages.debian.org/stable/interpreters/cpp
When I search for cpp package, it states that cpp is dependent on cpp-2.95.
When I search for cpp-2.95, it says that it is dependent on cpp.
How should I go about installing this.
My old laptop does not have access to internet, so cannot use apt-get.
