./configure no such file or directory

Asked by Souvik Maji on 2015-12-14

I am trying to install from source in my fedora system. I have build essentials installed.The readme file says to do the normal configure make isntall routine, though there is no configure script in the development brunch. I did autoconf to generate the configure script. It gives a undefined macro error. I removed the AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE missing macro error by enabling m4_patttern_alllow in the configure.in file. But the other undefined macro error is still there. The error says now:
possibly undefined macro: AM_PROG_CC_STDC
configure.in:20: error: possibly undefined macro: AM_PROG_CC_C_O
configure.in:42: error: possibly undefined macro: AM_CONDITIONAL
configure.in:77: error: possibly undefined macro: AC_MSG_ERROR
configure.in:135: error: possibly undefined macro: AM_GNU_GETTEXT
configure.in:136: error: possibly undefined macro: AM_GNU_GETTEXT_VERSION
what to do?

Do you have automake installed? If it was a Ubuntu system I would simply say install autotools-dev package. Not sure what the equivalent is on Fedora.

This question was expired because it remained in the 'Needs information' state without activity for the last 15 days.

Please run the autogen.sh script first - ./autogen.sh
This will create the configure script if you have appropriate tools installed.
