I think as per post 12 that kb3 can't be installed. Anyway i followed instructions as per post 14 and this came out:
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for a thread-safe mkdir -p... /bin/mkdir -p
checking for gawk... no
checking for mawk... mawk
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking whether to enable maintainer-specific portions of Makefiles... no
checking for style of include used by make... GNU
checking for gcc... gcc
checking for C compiler default output file name...
configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables
See `config.log' for more details.

Man, its just tough to track down dependency problems, with such an old release. I'm guessing you don't have access to any other PC where you can try and download and burn a new release...

Only other thing I can suggest, I know you're using 6.10, but maybe the .deb file from 6.06 will work. Unfortunately they've taken all Edgy packages down, because its no longer supported... Download the .deb and double click, and see what happens.

http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?ke...er&section=all

Perhaps if you have a LOCO team in your area, you could contact someone and ask them to burn you a disk and give it to you.

Okay, i think i'm going to have to find a new release Cd from out there in the real world. I've tried downloading .deb but it says dependency is not satisfiable - libgstreamer0.8-0, whatever that means. Tried to get somewhere with k3b too but can't work out 'installing from source'. I'm shocked that all this stuff goes out of date so quickly, i was given 6.10 only a few weeks ago as something 'new' to try - and it only dates from 2006 after all.

Thanks for help from everyone.

Well,with Linux things are changing quickly,you were given Ubuntu CD to try sometning new to you but that wasn't new release.Find someone who can give you a CD or burn it for you.You can order it too from Ubuntu's web site.

Well molto happiness and perhaps embarrassment - I'd just about given up but I tried right clicking on the iso I'd downloaded onto the desktop. One of the menu items was write to CD, so as I'd already put in a blank CD I clicked it and it started writing! Sometimes it's worth trying ye olde Windows approach. Anyway now Ubuntu 8.04 LTS is up and running. God knows what burning software was used.

9.04 will be out in about 2mo. At least now, you have a viable upgrade path, from 8.04 to 8.10, and so on..
