I installed LAMP on vmware server 1.06 virtual machine with intention of running plone on it. There is no gcc installed however. I am not familiar with Ubuntu. Webmin doesn't seem to help. Can somebody tell me how to install gcc? Thank you.
I managed to install build-essential, which installed gcc, but I was surprised that apt-get repositories were not set up. Is it assumed that no software is installed on an appliance? I couldn't find an editor - is there a detailed list of software included in the appliance? What's the typical usage scenario? If you charge $5/month for EC2 deployment, for which I signed up shouldn't you include some rudimentary documentation?
