I use Fedora release 19 (Schrödinger’s Cat).

I want to compile Gource, but I have some problem with the autogen.

When I run ./, I have the following error :

Can't exec "aclocal": No such file or directory at /usr/share/autoconf/Autom4te/ line 326.
autoreconf: failed to run aclocal: No such file or directory
Running autoreconf failed, please make sure you have autoconf installed.

autoconf is installed.

How to fix this error ?

Do you have automake installed?

No it was not installed. And with yum install automake it works. Write it as an answer. Thanks you.

You need to install the automake package. You can do this by running as root

yum install automake


dnf install automake
