comment libevent error when installing tmux_1.8 on Ubuntu 12.04
As a side note , when using sudo apt-get install .. when you're not sure about the package name to install you can partially write the package name and press the TAB key twice to return all matching packages.. doing sudo apt-get install libevent then TAB twice will get you a nice list.. just try it next time you're not sure..

i added an answer for two reasons. first there isnt a proper answer and second,the answer in the question' comments did not fix the problem i had on my part.. as in i was also missing ncurses.. digging more got me the answer.. and a good answer will surely help others :)

how many total active users are there on ask ubuntu compared to other sites ? are there statistics available online ? my opinion would be that there are too many askers and not enough (good) answerers (not that it's necessarily a bad thing that there are too many questions asked..) but with numbers backing this or something else.. answers to this question (and other similar ones) could be defined/theoricized/answered ..

don't bother to install apache on your own if you're new to it.. if it's only for a local developement rig.. just use xampp instead.. it will install a bunch of stuff for you ..brownie points you will score then with xampp installed..
