just updated kde 3.2.2 Now. make error!!
 
I just updated my Suse 9.0 to new KDE 3.2.2. Everything installed great, but one problem now while trying to install kooldock 0.1 and I get this error:
/home/themes/kooldock-0.1 # make
cd . && /bin/sh /home/themes/kooldock-0.1/admin/missing --run autoconf
Can't locate object method "path" via package "Autom4te::Request" at /usr/bin/autom4te line 81, <GEN1> line 117.
make: *** [configure] Error 1

I reinstalled latest m4, autoconf, automake, and make, rebooted and still get same error.

CVS. WORKED! no make error
 
Well. for those of you trying to install kooldock from Kde-Look.org, Better do the CVS install from Kooldock homepage. Fixed my make error!

Also updated SuSE 9.0 to KDE 3.2.2 and can't make!
 
I have also just updated SuSE 9.0 to KDE 3.2.2 and can no longer use make properly. I am getting the following error on each attempt:

Code:

make
cd . && /bin/sh /home/gerardd/sources/kooldock/admin/missing --run autoheader
Can't locate object method "path" via package "Autom4te::Request" at /usr/bin/autom4te line 81, <GEN1> line 116.
autoheader: /usr/bin/autom4te failed with exit status: 1
make: *** [config.h.in] Error 1

That particular example is from kooldock 0.2, but I have had the same problem with every program I have tried to make since the upgrade (which downloaded and updated last night).

Any help would be very welcome... !!

Cheers,

TightCode

Well I finally found the problem !
 
Well I finally found the problem thanks to this link.
So if you are also having this problem, "rm -r autom4te.cache/" in the directory you unpacked whatever program to you are working on and try make again and you should be set to go.

Strange I never had this problem before and recently the past 3 programs I tried to install were victim to it.

Cheers,

TC
