TurnKey Linux Virtual Appliance Library

make system package install

I'm building a simple vm on top of the turnkey core vm and needed to install a bunch of perl modules. Most of them failed the first time around because 'make' was not installed. Thats not a problem; the problem is that when I tried to install it using first the webmin package install then apt-get on the command line I simply got a package not found message. I checked the sources.lst and it looks good so I don't know why it could not find it. Anyway this is just a heads up in case other stuff is 'not found'. I did manage to push make onto the vm using other options on the install menu. thanks for building the best general vm I've seen...

Should've been able to install make

Even though you got it installed by other means I'd still be wondering why it didn't work. From what I can see it's in the main Ubuntu repo.

Did you run apt-get update first? The other things I'd be checking are networking/internet.
