No make package in Ubuntu?


Just recently install ubuntu 5.10 in my laptop. Tried to install emacs. But found that ubuntu doesn't have make, gcc packages. Is it true? or I made some mistakes.

The default Ubuntu installation is really barebones (gnome and base system) so you need to install development tools and other apps from online repos using apt.

Out of curiosity, are you trying to build emacs from source?

You can install it using apt: "sudo apt-get install emacs21"

That is what it is called on my system. Try "apt-cache search emacs". You may need to enable the universe repository in /etc/apt/sources.list and then run "sudo apt-get update" first.
