Recursive Dependency Whiling Building g++-4.7 (4.7.2-2ubuntu1)

Asked by Fei Ye on 2012-12-01

I am trying to build the g++-4.7.

http://packages.ubuntu.com/quantal/g++-4.7 points out "g++-4.7 (4.7.2-2ubuntu1)" depends on "libstdc++6-4.7-dev (4.7.2-2ubuntu1)", while http://packages.ubuntu.com/quantal/libstdc++6-4.7-dev points out "libstdc++6-4.7-dev (4.7.2-2ubuntu1)" depends on "g++-4.7 (4.7.2-2ubuntu1)".

I really don't know what that means if such cross-dependency exists. Is that a bug? Anyone willing to help me out?

Thanks

never mind. I figured out if I use dpkg -i g++-4.7_4.7.2-2ubuntu1_amd64.deb libstdc++6-4.7-dev (4.7.2-2ubuntu1) it worked automatically.
