when building my application with kdevelop 3.5 on Ubuntu 10.04, I get the following errors:
libtool: Version mismatch error. This is libtool 2.2.6 Debian-2.2.6a-4, but the libtool: definition of this LT_INIT comes from libtool 2.2.6b. libtool: You should recreate aclocal.m4 with macros from libtool 2.2.6 Debian-2.2.6a-4 libtool: and run autoconf again. make: *** [wktools4] Error 63 make: Target `all' not remade because of errors. make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1 make: *** [all] Error 2 *** Exited with status: 2 ***
Where can I get the needed version of libtool, or how can I recreate aclocal.m4?
autoreconf --force --install ./configure make
in the root directory of your project.
If that doesn't work, try running
make maintainer-clean first and then go to step 1.
If that still doesn't work, run
make maintainer-clean, then delete every generated file in the root directory of your project; including
m4 directory, any
ltmain.sh, etc. Then go to step 1.
Why this works:
aclocal.m4 are both files that are generated by your build system. If they are out of sync (generated by different versions of the build tools), then you get this error. Normally that shouldn't happen, but an example of something that can cause it is when you check in generated files to source control.
What this solution does is delete and regenerate all the autogenerated files. Once they're erased and regenerated, they can't be out of sync anymore.
-i option is important.
Try running aclocal
maybe you have installed two libtools of different version. Try to
apt-get remove all (until you get nothing, when you type
which libtool in the command line), then
apt-get install the one you like.
I solve that uninstalling system's libtool and installing from upstream: git clone git://git.savannah.gnu.org/libtool.git
sudo apt-get install texinfo autoconf automake make ./bootstrap ./configure make sudo make install
None of the above worked.
Then this worked:
autoconf -f ./configure make
