Hi,

usually you shouldn't manyally install rpm files using the rpm command. Instead can use yum to automiciallly download and install software and its dependencies. So, to install autoconf you run the following as root.
Code:
yum install autoconf
If this does not work please post the error message that was output and provide some information about your OS including the distribution (eg CentOS, Scientific Linux etc) and the version number.

Welcome to LQ.

`autoconf-2.61-85.1.i586.rpm' is an OpenSuse 11.0 package.

Which OS are you using ? ?

Hi,

ok the problem is that without a paid support contract, RHEL (Red Hat Enterprise Linux) is almost useless. You won't be able to install packages using yum and you won't get any security updates. So, the solution here is to use a different linux distribution. If you want to stick with something like RHEL, you can use CentOS or Scientific Linux which are both fully functional free rebuilds/clones of RHEL.

rpmlib(PayloadIsLzma) <= 4.4.2-1 is needed by autoconf-2.61-85.1.i586

autoconf depends on m4 (version greater or equal to 1.4.11), which presumably you have not installed.

autoconf also depends on rpmlib (version less than or equal to 4.4.2-1), which presumably you have not installed.

This is what happens when you try to install random .rpm files manually.

yes, and your favourite search engine does too. See www.centos.org and follow the "Downloads" and then the "Mirror List" links. Alternatively follow the "Download Linux" link in the top right corner of this page.
