It's Linux Ubuntu 14. I'm trying to install gnu radio and when I try to configure, pthread library is missing. I then do

sudo apt-get install pthread

I got this as return:

akula@akula:~/OpenBts/gnuradio-3.4.0$ cd ~
akula@akula:~$ sudo apt-get install pthread
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package pthread

I did already all kinds of updates and everything else I found on the internet.

If anyone could help me, I would be grateful.

What is the exact error message (that prompts you to install libpthread)? – edwin Apr 23 '14 at 18:00
Why do you want to install pthread? Its a C library available by default. – i08in Apr 23 '14 at 18:04

The correct name of the package is libpthread-stubs0-dev:
sudo apt-get install libpthread-stubs0-dev

It's already installed in 15.10 at least. – the_drow Dec 6 '15 at 17:56
