Automake - aclocal: command not found

by 3:34 AM 34 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.
