compiling and building software
Hello. I recently installed a base Debian system by using the rescue and
root floppies and installing the rest from the Internet. Since I installed
only the bare system I didn't have a compiler installed (at least I don't
think I did) and couldn't build some stuff I downloaded. I want to build and
install the latest version of Postfix but I'm getting a Make error message
about missing something (see below). My question is.. What are the required
libraries and packages needed to compile most software? I'm used to using
Slackware and it installed most everything I needed. I'm new to Debian
and I'm uncertain on what all I need.
The make process is failing with this message:
No <db.h> include file found.
Install the appropriate db*-devel package first.
