Description Luis Felipe Marzagao 2007-06-05 03:10:23 UTC
Description of problem:

Command "make" tells I need automake 1.6 when, in fact, I have version 1.10.

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

package automake.noarch 0:1.10-5 from the default fedora repository.

How reproducible:

I'm no expert at all in compiling stuff. I was just trying to compile k9copy
when the below happened.

Steps to Reproduce:

1. wget http://ufpr.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/k9copy/k9copy-1.1.1-3.tar.gz
2. tar zxvf k9copy*
3. cd k9copy*
4. cat README
5. make -f Makefile.cvs && echo ok

Actual results:

Make doesn't work and tells me I need automake 1.6:

[duli@localhost k9copy-1.1.1-3]$ make -f Makefile.cvs && echo ok
This Makefile is only for the CVS repository
This will be deleted before making the distribution

*** YOU'RE USING automake (GNU automake) 1.10.
*** KDE requires automake 1.6
make[1]: ** [cvs] Erro 1
make: ** [all] Erro 2

Expected results:

Make should complete successfully.

Comment 1 Karsten Hopp 2007-06-05 09:11:36 UTC
The various automake packages aren't compatible, you can't use a file written
for automake-1.6 with automake-1.10 without some modifications.
You're better off using the automake16 compatibility package for this.
Just install that package and make sure that the makefile runs automake16
instead of automake.

Comment 2 Luis Felipe Marzagao 2007-06-05 13:44:22 UTC
Okay, solved by installing automake17. My bad not knowing it wasn´t supposed to
be compatible with superior version. Thanks a lot for your help.
