I am new to linux. I installed ubuntu8.0.4 on my desktop using ubuntu 8.0.4 CD. I am trying to install ndiswrapper package to access internet using wifi. While installing I came across some errors and identified that some packages like build-essential are missing. I tried to install build-essential and came to know that the dependent packages are missing. I started installing one after another using the packages available on ubuntu CD. During this I came across a strange situation. I tried to install g++4.2 package and it said libstdc++6.4.2-dev is missing. As I noticed that package available on CD, I tried to install it, then it gave me an error saying g++4.2 is missing.
I have been struggling to complete this installation for quite some time. I would appreciate if some one can look into this and help in overcoming the current deadlock.
