I just installed dsl 4.1.1 on virtualbox(It is an hdd install with persistence not running off a live iso). My host os is xp and the laptop is fairly new dell.
The problem I am facing is am unable to get apt-get working. I have already done the following:
2)download the tarball from the internet and move it /var/lib and used the
tar zxvf dpkg.tar.gz
3)as another effort I also tried to extract the tarball to /usr/bin/
4)use the inbuilt script (which failed giving me a download error) (enable apt-get under tools)
Whenever I do an apt-get command(like : sudo apt-get nmap) I get the following error:
sudo:apt-get command not found
PS: this is my first time using linux of any kind ever so please forgive me if the question sounds silly.
