I just moved back over to Windows and am trying to set up my dev environment on Windows Subsystem for Linux (wsl). In the process of trying to
brew install something, I ran into the error
gcc must be installed. So I tried to
brew install gcc but it threw an error
patchelf must be installed. Then I tried to
brew install patchelf but it throws the error
gcc must be installed! So now I’m confused because I can’t have patchelf without gcc and can’t have gcc without patchelf.
There’s an instruction in the installation guide for homebrew that mentions running
sudo apt-get install build-essential. If you run that then you should be able to go ahead and install gcc with homebrew.
Note that if you’re having problems running the install command for
build-essential, you should try refreshing the package repos with
sudo apt-get update
