Hi, i have been trying to install the gcc docs using sudo apt install gcc-doc but i cannot find the package in PureOS repos!
Any idea why is it missing ?
This is the /etc/apt/sources.list:
# Main package repository for PureOS
deb https://repo.pureos.net/pureos byzantium main
# Important security updates
deb https://repo.pureos.net/pureos byzantium-security main
# Other updates for resolving non-security issues
deb https://repo.pureos.net/pureos byzantium-updates main
Description: documentation for the GNU compilers (gcc, gobjc, g++)
This is the dependency package that should install manual pages
and documentation for Debian default version of GNU compilers.
This documentation is available from non-free part of Debian archive.
As you see related information above it is part of contrib repo (not under PureOS by itself).
gcc docs are released under the GFDL license - and some people (including the Debian project) consider GFDL a non-free license. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GNU_Free_Documentation_License#Criticism for some details. This is the reason Debian packages gcc-doc in non-free, and pureos only includes the free part of Debian (the main section, and not the non-free section).
Perhaps adding contrib your sources.list helps, if you decide to go with by yourself adjusted version of (remove or block this line afterwards):
It is very late for me but now try only:
@Usr1, please do not execute or even think to execute sudo apt upgrade, not at all and add ## in front of deb https://ftp.debian.org/debian/ ... line or just delete it, after above successful (hopefully)!
Yea i know this can be done that way, i have added the debian repos before and i messed everything up, i had to reinstall PureOS. So i think i am gonna stick with just PureOS repos. gcc-doc is not that important, i can view the docs online afterall.
