Automake - aclocal: command not found

by 3:34 AM 15 comments
I was setting up a new server and compiling some apache conectors when I came across this error:

me@server.com: 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.

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

  7. That's why i hate this things!!!
    if you can have ./configure to configure the build, why the fuck do i have to have automake to configure the fucking ./configure???
    that's bullshit!
    too many preliminaries!!!

  10. # make
    cd . && /bin/sh /root/folder_test/simscan-1.4.0/missing --run aclocal-1.6
    /root/folder_test/simscan-1.4.0/missing: line 46: aclocal-1.6: command not found
    WARNING: `aclocal-1.6' is missing on your system. You should only need it if
    you modified `acinclude.m4' or `configure.in'. You might want
    to install the `Automake' and `Perl' packages. Grab them from
    any GNU archive site.

    Note : automake is installed on my server
