libc6 installation??
 
Hi,
I m using Kubuntu 8.I cant compile c programs on my system.When i check out in Adept package manager .I shows that libc6 is installed.But when i do "whereis libc6 " it gives no result.when i try to to
sudo apt-get install libc6 it shows again that the latest version of libc6 is already installed.
When i compile a c program h.c,

#include<stdio.h>
int main()
{
printf("Helloworld");
}

i get the following output.
gcc h.c

h.c:1:18: error: stdio.h: No such file or directory
h.c: In function ‚main‚:
h.c:4: warning: incompatible implicit declaration of built-in function ‚printf‚
h.c:5:2: warning: no newline at end of file

Please tell me wats wrong how to cure this??
Thanks in advance!!!!!!!

Hi

Install the package "build-essential". You will then get gcc with the libraries you need, like libc6-dev.

Thanks for reply!!!
I tried sudo apt-get install build-essential but it doesnt work ..the error message was..

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Couldn't find package build-essential

Infact for any package i get the same response...
If it is not present in my system ...
it shows the above error..
otherwise it says that package is present on the system..


I dont have synaptic package manager on my system
what should i do know...???

Strange...

Maybe try "sudo apt-get update". This will download the lists of all packages avaiable. If you still can't install anything, there might be something wrong with where you download from. Try "cat /etc/apt/sources.list" and post the output here. The file /etc/apt/sources.list specifies where you get the programs from.

Hi again.

Sorry for the late reply. The file looks OK. You should be able to install all kinds of packages.

But does "sudo apt-get update" any error message?

Maybe post a question in the Ubuntu section about it? This has nothing to do with libc6 installation, when you cannot install any package on your system.
