Posted by fhfhfof on Dec. 11 2003,02:51I don't think you can install GCC and make as packages with DSL because the var/lib/dpkg has been removed. (Correct me if I'm wrong). You'll have to get a binary version of GCC and make and then load them into ramdisk or a partition (or some other filesystem).
Posted by Crotalus on Dec. 11 2003,02:55run dpkg-restore as root and then try to install gcc/make. If that doesn't work then run apt-get remove coreutils, it will warn but say yes, then the second warning, about removing the kernel, say NO. Not responsible for what this does though. Hint: It worked for me!
