So I am trying to put gcc-6/g++-6 on Linux Mint 17.1 with absolutely no luck.
First off, I added the Ubuntu tool chain in order to have access to the gcc 6 repositories.
My main issue is when trying to install any of these packages, I get:
Depends: libmpc2 but it is not installable
Also, apt-get cannot install libmpc2. When I run,
sudo apt-get install libmpc2
I recieve the following:
Package libmpc2 is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source. E: Package 'libmpc2' has no installation candidate
I have also tried installing libmpc2 manually using:
dpkg -i <package name> sudo apt-get install -f ( aptitude install -f as well )
Then when I try to install cpp-6 ( which is needed for gcc-6 ), I get the same error, as if it does not know that libmpc2 is there.
Also, why does gcc-6 want libmpc2 and not 3? I know that gcc-4.8.4 uses libmpc3....
But I am currently stuck, so any help would be nice.
