AutoConf Problem. (almost fixed >.<)
 
**** YOU'RE USING Autoconf version 2.13.
**** KDE requires autoconf 2.52, 2.53 or 2.54
*gmake[1]: *** [cvs] Error 1
*gmake: *** [all] Error 2
**** Exited with status: 2 ***


Any idea where I can upgrade with the least amount of problems?

edit:
Found it. But I dont see any rpms for 2.52+

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/history/215881

edit2:
Update on the errors. I have autoconf and automake updated versions now.

Is there anyone that can recommend an alternate IDE? Or show me how to fix this? Should I update my aclocal files?

if you're using kdevelop 3.x, the solution to your problem might be
in choosing a different project type. i know that i had the same problem
(automake/autoconf version troubles) with kdevelop 3.x as it comes
with debian sarge, when i tried to create a simple C++ project.

if you create a "qmake" project instead, there's no trouble at all - this
works for non-qt projects as well.

hope that helps.

unfortunately those aclocal files are created slowly as packages are compiled....
yours now seem not compatable with the new autoconfig

you might have to do it by hand i will show the first one (i think)
/usr/share/aclocal/pkg.m4 line 5
Code:

AC_DEFUN(PKG_CHECK_MODULES, [
now has to be
Code:

AC_DEFUN([PKG_CHECK_MODULES], [
and like that (like i said -- i think)
just try one and see if the warning goes away

I'm too scared to mess with Autoconf and Automake again. I haven't updated them again since my reinstall of Linux. BUT. It still doesn't work~ I'm going to do what thrifteed said about just using a qmake project instead. I think they both require the same QT code. Which I still have to learn~ (Any sites you recommend).

Cheers~

edit:
Ok. I can't help but trying. I'm going to reupdate the autoconf and automake files again. Wish me luck.:(

(fortunately I can still compile and execute C++ code for console apps)

edit:
Update your autoconf and automake from the distro cd's~works beautful now.

tears of joy~:cry: :cry: :cry:
