Hi,

I usually install build-essential and automake in case I install software manually that isn't in the package manager.  This may not be needed as I am still learning what is in PiSi package manager and all that I need may be included.  For instance, at first I couldn't find k9copy, and thought I was going to need to install this manually.  I eventually found it in PiSi. But...just in case...
I see automake is installed, but I do not see build-essential in PiSi package manager.  Is it necessary, or is there something similiar in PiSi? 

Regards,
Lisa Marie

There is no build-essential meta-package on Pardus. The equivalent is to install gcc + make + automake
Not a big deal.

It's probably a good idea to install cmake as well if you're doing a lot of building from source, quite a few packages these days have swapped to it... KDE4 most notably.
