Clean install of Ubuntu. When you try to “make” something, you get errors like these:
error: stdlib.h: No such file or directory
error: stdio.h: No such file or directory
error: string.h: No such file or directory
Basic CD install does not install all of the dev tools.
Run this command:
sudo apt-get -y install build-essential
This also is required when installing the VirtualBox Additions.
