WARNING: 'aclocal-1.14' is missing on your system.
         You should only need it if you modified 'acinclude.m4' or
         'configure.ac' or m4 files included by 'configure.ac'.
         The 'aclocal' program is part of the GNU Automake package:
         <http://www.gnu.org/software/automake>
         It also requires GNU Autoconf, GNU m4 and Perl in order to run:
         <http://www.gnu.org/software/autoconf>
         <http://www.gnu.org/software/m4/>
         <http://www.perl.org/>
Makefile:938: recipe for target 'aclocal.m4' failed
make: *** [aclocal.m4] Error 127


Any hints are highly appreciated. I've tried some of the tips regarding missing aclocal-1.14 and autotools I've found via google but no success.

Many thanks!
Matthias

Sorry to bother you again!

I'm now having the exact same problem on debian stretch arch x86_64.

Linux deb 4.9.0-8-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.9.110-3+deb9u4 (2018-08-21) x86_64 GNU/Linux

I've installed all of the above

Code: Select all

apt-get install autotools-dev automake libtool


and also tried the suggestions here:

https://github.com/roelj/inklingreader/issues/14

No luck. Any hints?

All best,
Matthias

It's really strange that your system wants to update these files. How did you extract the source archive on the build machine? Have you copied the source folder after extracting it? These sorts of issues are probably from timestamps getting updated in the build files so the buildsystem thinks it needs to update things that is does not.

Thank you Patrick!

I've downloaded and extracted the tarball on the target machine and it builds without any of the problems above.

What I did before was:
* downloaded and extracted the files under OS X
* added the extracted directory to my git-repository
* via ssh: cloned the repo on the linux machine
* tried to build the library: /.configure && make && make install

You have saved me from pulling my remaining hair out!!!

Many thanks!
Matthias
