autogen.shscript. When I run it to create
configurescript, however, I am getting the following error:
Can't exec "aclocal": No such file or directory at /usr/share/autoconf/Autom4te/FileUtils.pm line 326. autoreconf: failed to run aclocal: No such file or directoryHow can I fix this problem?
The development release of a program source code often comes with
autogen.sh which is used to prepare a build process, including verifying program functionality and generating
configure script. This
autogen.sh script then relies on
autoreconf to invoke
aclocal and other related tools.
aclocal is part of
automake package. Thus, to fix this error, install the following package.
automake on Debian-based system:
$ sudo apt-get install automake
automake on Red-Hat-based system:
$ sudo yum install automake
