Kdevelop compiler Error in aclocal.m4

Hello there,
I am using Redhat Linux 9.0 (make-3.79.1-17,glibc-2.3.2-5, kdevelop-2.1.5-6)
I create one project and without writing any code I tried to compile it, but I am getting following error:

aclocal.m4:3009: your implementation of AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE comes from an
aclocal.m4:3009: old Automake version. You should recreate aclocal.m4
aclocal.m4:3009: with aclocal and run automake again.

Any one if have solutions for this, please reply

Sounds like you need to regenerate your project files. This file gets created at project creation.

Actually I saw this problem on the KDevelop forums (if you can, do a search at for more details than I can recall here...)

Basically its a conflict with your automake version...(that is, if it's happening right at the beginning during the create project wizzard...if you had already compiled your project before...then I don't know)

I get this exact same error! My work around has been to enter my project dir and...


... this will fix the immediate problem. I however would like a solution to fix it correctly so I don't have to use the work around!
