Starting C compiler


Hello all


I've encountered a problem in running DSL; how can I get the c compiler as well as other packages and libraries that are needed to build and compile other applications and updates. Besides, could I also know how to create other users and groups. Many thanks in advance.



Kind regards


newbie

You can use the 'apt' package manager to download the desired files. Most probably you will require the developmental packages also for your work.

For creating user you can use the 'adduser' command.

Do a 'man' of the command for which you need help. For the list of commands you can check,

From the command line:
adduser
addgroup
works in ubuntu and would be worth a shot in DSL
