I downloaded audacity cvs 1.3.11 from depository and try to build on Redhat entprise 5 (el5) server.
The redhat offer default installed version of as follow:
- autoconf 2.59-12
- m4 -1.4.5-3.el5.1
- perl 5.00.5xx ( this require for dependencies for upgrading autoconf)
The Audacity-1.3.11 make process break off at following stage:
make: Leaving directory `/home/shylock_1/mmedia/audacity/lib-src/twolame' ln -sf twolame/libtwolame/.libs/libtwolame.a libtwolame.a make -C taglib make: Entering directory `/home/shylock_1/mmedia/audacity/lib-src/taglib' cd . && rm -f configure cd . && make -f admin/Makefile.common configure make: Entering directory `/home/shylock_1/mmedia/audacity/lib-src/taglib' aclocal.m4:20: warning: this file was generated for autoconf 2.63. You have another version of autoconf. It may work, but is not guaranteed to. If you have problems, you may need to regenerate the build system entirely. To do so, use the procedure documented by the package, typically `autoreconf'. configure.in:45: error: Autoconf version 2.60 or higher is required aclocal.m4:496: AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE is expanded from... configure.in:45: the top level autom4te: /usr/bin/m4 failed with exit status: 63 make: *** [configure] Error 1 make: Leaving directory `/home/shylock_1/mmedia/audacity/lib-src/taglib' make: *** [configure] Error 2 make: Leaving directory `/home/shylock_1/mmedia/audacity/lib-src/taglib' make: *** [taglib-recursive] Error 2 make: Leaving directory `/home/shylock_1/mmedia/audacity/lib-src' make: *** [audacity] Error 2
It scream out for upgrade of autoconf that subsequent for m4 macro plus few more stuff. But in our case upgrade is NOT an option as for concern other development which based on redhats default version of utilities. Hence upgrading autoconf and m4 is out of question that brings square one; where should I find the
To do so, use the procedure documented by the package, typically `autoreconf’.
as stated in build(make) file OR is there any other way I can build audacity cvs???
If any one knows or how to autoreconf the pack details info, please.
Thanks in advance,
