    hi guys..
    tried to install make on my new ubuntu install using :sudo apt-get install make
    this is wat happened:
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree... Done
    Package make is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source
    W: Couldn't stat source package list breezy/main Packa ges (/var/lib/apt/lists/archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_breezy_main_binary-i386_ Packages) - stat (2 No such file or directory)
    W: Couldn't stat source package list breezy/restricted Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_breezy_restricted_ binary-i386_Packages) - stat (2 No such file or directory)
    W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems
    E: Package make has no installation candidate

    i guess make wasnt installed..please help !!:confused:

    I would tell you to get the fedora RPM and to convert it with alien, or check(in root) to see if you already have the command.

    What's in /etc/apt/sources.list? Did you run
    apt-get update
