Hi, i've just started using linux yesterday, so im quite new to it all :)

But i found out, that i need to run synaptic to get the 'make' command i need to have, in order to install other programs! But, when i try to get it, i get the error

"Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)"

Then, when i try

apt-get -f install

i get this:

root@box:~# apt-get -f install make
