Automake - aclocal: command not found

by 3:34 AM 52 comments
I was setting up a new server and compiling some apache conectors when I came across this error: make
cd . && aclocal
/bin/sh: aclocal: command not found
make: *** [aclocal.m4] Error 127

Where does this come from and how do you fix it?

It's part of Automake . To fix it on Debian/Ubuntu:

apt-get install automake

and CentOs

yum install automake

Or you can download and set it up here.


  1. Solved the issue for me :)

  3. You should report this upstream. If autoconf/etc. depends on automake, it should be added as a dependency.

    if you can have ./configure to configure the build, why the fuck do i have to have automake to configure the fucking ./configure???

  12. How are Sphynx cats with other pets?
    This is hard to answer. Generally, as a breed and given how affectionate they are I would say you have a better chance of a Sphynx cat getting along with other pets than a different breed of cat. But then each one is different and may or may not like any given pet or person.

    They definitely do not like to be alone, that was one of the reasons we got two. So it is always good for them to have a buddy if you are going to be away at work all day.
