I have spent the last several hours trying to install the apd extension for php on Unbuntu. I come here out of frustration, hoping that someone can help me figure this out. Since I am running php4, first I downloaded the latest release of apd for php4. I did this by running "pear download apd-0.9.1.tgz". Next I ran "pear install apd-0.9.1.tgz" and I get the following output:
18 source files, building
PHP Api Version: 20020918
Zend Module Api No: 20020429
Zend Extension Api No: 20021010
building in /var/tmp/pear-build-root/apd-0.9.1

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.
So, I did some research and found that I should run "apt-get install build-essential". When I do so, I get the following output:
Reading package lists...
Building dependency tree...
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
build-essential: Depends: libc6-dev but it is not going to be installed or
Depends: g++ (>= 3:3.3) but it is not going to be installed
What can I do to resolve this issue?
