g++ and libc


I just installed Mepis. I have gcc but no g++, when I tried to install, the following error is displayed

root@0[sw]# dpkg -i gcc-c++_2.96-86_i386.deb
(Reading database ... 69963 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking gcc-c++ (from gcc-c++_2.96-86_i386.deb) ...
dpkg: error processing gcc-c++_2.96-86_i386.deb (--install):
trying to overwrite `/usr/bin/c++filt', which is also in package binutils
dpkg-deb: subprocess paste killed by signal (Broken pipe)
Errors were encountered while processing:

Could someone suggest what actually happened because even when i removed c++flit, the same message occured and help me install my g++

And my gcc also had problems,

root@0[c]# cc first.c
first.c:1:19: stdio.h: No such file or directory

I think I do not have libc.

Impossible... without libc, you can't boot... unless you have uclibc instead.
But that's possible that libc headers are not installed
