After I install a fresh copy of Ubuntu (version 12.04), I need to install
build-essentials. To do so, in the terminal I have to run this first:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
before I'm able to install
These two commands take a lot of time and install many things.
Is there a way to install
build-essentials without running these two commands, or a way that these two commands don't install all the updates and hence will take less time?
