Autotools in SCL

Repository provides various versions of autotools for all supported Fedora distributions, Fedora Rawhide, and all supported EPEL versions (so particular package from this repository may expect EPEL repository enabled).

All tools are distributed like Software Collections -- therefore they do not collide with your installed system packages. One of the key points here is that you can run the same version of the tool e.g. both on RHEL5 or Fedora Rawhide.

There are currently packaged two collections:

  • autotools-latest -- contains latest released (stable) versions of autoconf, automake, libtool, and m4
  • autotools-git -- bleeding edge development versions of autoconf, automake and libtool built directly from git repositories from time to time (m4 from git is not packaged yet).

Installation Instructions

Simply, just install appropriate yum repository file, install collection and use it. Example of installing latest released versions of autotoools for Fedora (IIRC any version, don't worry about the link):

$ sudo wget \\ -O /etc/yum.repos.d/autotools.repo $ sudo yum install autotools-latest

You can try that it works:

$ m4 --version | head -1 m4 (GNU M4) 1.4.16 $ scl enable autotools-latest bash $ m4 --version | head -1 m4 (GNU M4) 1.4.17

Typical usage for package maintainer:

$ scl enable autotools-latest 'rpmbuild --rebuild *.src.rpm'

Thats it, ping me when you find a problem.
