Re: Autoconf Error

Red Hat Linux 7.2 comes with automake 2.13 installed. The package you are
trying to configure is demanding is demanding autoconf 2.52 or better. The
fix is to find an RPM of autoconf-2.52 or higher version number (look at
Red Hat's website, or try, perhaps) and upgrade it. See "man
rpm" for instructions on how to do this once you've located the RPM. If
this is above your skill level, you might need someone a bit more
experienced with Linux to help you.

Hi All,

We are linux newbies and tried to install automake on RH 7.2

we already installed Autoconf and could see the binaries

but while compiling we saw following error:

checking for a BSD compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for gawk... gawk
checking whether make sets ${MAKE}... yes
checking for perl... /usr/bin/perl
configure: error: Autoconf 2.52 or better is required
address@hidden automake-1.6]# $path
address@hidden automake-1.6]# $PATH

No such file or directory
address@hidden automake-1.6]:

Could you plz tell me what is the problem and what's the fix.

Thank you,
