Description Robert Scheck 2004-03-14 00:15:49 UTC
Description of problem, how reproducible & Steps to Reproduce:
I still get the error message "automake requires `AM_CONFIG_HEADER',
not `AC_CONFIG_HEADER'" at recompiling grub (more exactly is at
autoconf/automake) at some (older?) systems.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Actual results:
Well, there's an easy solution to solve it:

--- grub-0.94/configure.ac              2004-03-14 00:56:36.000000000 +0100
+++ grub-0.94/configure.ac.automake     2004-03-14 00:57:28.000000000 +0100

Expected results:
Please apply that simple patch, thanks :)

This works here and changing it is likely to break different version
of auto*.  What versions of autoconf/automake do you have?

Comment 2 Robert Scheck 2004-03-15 17:45:29 UTC
Oh sorry, I saw, my version of auto* are not the latest one.

But in "The GNU configure and build system" by Ian Lance Taylor, I 
noticed, that "If you are not using automake, use `AC_CONFIG_HEADER' 
rather than `AM_CONFIG_HEADER'". So we use automake, do we?

I also saw, that the newer versions of autoconf/automake are more 
loyal than the older ones, so AM should (only should) work.

Sorry again for my older auto* - it's your turn, I didn't test that
patch with the latest autoconf/automake, whether it really works.

Yes, grub uses automake as well
