Problem 1:

vagrant@precise32:/vagrant$ autoreconf
Can't exec "libtoolize": No such file or directory at /usr/bin/autoreconf line 196.
Use of uninitialized value in pattern match (m//) at /usr/bin/autoreconf line 196.
configure.ac:11: required file `./compile' not found
configure.ac:11:   `automake --add-missing' can install `compile'
configure.ac:3: required file `./install-sh' not found
configure.ac:3:   `automake --add-missing' can install `install-sh'
configure.ac:3: required file `./missing' not found
configure.ac:3:   `automake --add-missing' can install `missing'
Makefile.am: required file `./depcomp' not found
Makefile.am:   `automake --add-missing' can install `depcomp'
configure.ac: required file `./ylwrap' not found
configure.ac:   `automake --add-missing' can install `ylwrap'
autoreconf: automake failed with exit status: 1

Solution 1:

Run sudo apt-get install build-essential libtool first (should be added to INSTALL or FAQ wiki page)

Problem 2:

vagrant@precise32:/vagrant$ autoreconf
configure.ac:11: required file `./compile' not found
configure.ac:11:   `automake --add-missing' can install `compile'
configure.ac:3: required file `./install-sh' not found

configure.ac:3: required file `./missing' not found
configure.ac:3:   `automake --add-missing' can install `missing'
Makefile.am: required file `./depcomp' not found
Makefile.am:   `automake --add-missing' can install `depcomp'
configure.ac: required file `./ylwrap' not found
configure.ac:   `automake --add-missing' can install `ylwrap'
autoreconf: automake failed with exit status: 1

Solution 2:

vagrant@precise32:/vagrant$ automake --add-missing
configure.ac:11: installing `./compile'
configure.ac:3: installing `./install-sh'
configure.ac:3: installing `./missing'
Makefile.am: installing `./depcomp'
configure.ac: installing `./ylwrap'

Problem 3:

After running ./configure, make fails.

Argh, can't edit my own comments, totally screwed up the formatting there.

#4

Updated by Pierre-Louis Bonicoli about 5 years ago

  • Subject changed from INSTALL instructions are outdated, and do not work on OS X 10.9.5 to INSTALL instructions are outdated, and do not work on Ubuntu 12.04
#5

Updated by Pierre-Louis Bonicoli about 2 months ago

  • Status changed from New to Resolved
  • Target version set to 0.9.0

source:INSTALL refers to source:README which provides specific instructions (63453bad41681d8c7c98ee279f80a16312deb7e5).
