    Error while make !!


    Hi all,

    I recently downloaded a lopster project code which contained the whiteboard code
    But unfortunately the "whiteboard.c" code was not found after downloading it.
    I downloaded several times but ended up in vain in finding that file so I decided to
    copy the "whiteboard.c" file from the site to the downloaded "src" code directory.
    I found that in 'Makefile.am' the required file was commented ....
    I removed the comment and tried to make along with the copied 'whiteboard.c' file
    after configuring
    There was no error while configuring but I got these 2 error after 'make'.

    Code:
    make  all-recursive
    make[1]: Entering directory `/root/whiteboards/lopster-1.2.2'
    Making all in src
    make[2]: Entering directory `/root/whiteboards/lopster-1.2.2/src'
    cd .. && automake --gnu src/Makefile
    configure.in:4: your implementation of AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE comes from an
    configure.in:4: old Automake version.  You should recreate aclocal.m4
    configure.in:4: with aclocal and run automake again.
    src/Makefile.am: required file `./depcomp' not found
    /usr/share/automake-1.6/am/depend2.am: AMDEP does not appear in AM_CONDITIONAL
    /usr/share/automake-1.6/am/depend2.am: AMDEP does not appear in AM_CONDITIONAL
    /usr/share/automake-1.6/am/depend2.am: AMDEP does not appear in AM_CONDITIONAL
    /usr/share/automake-1.6/am/lang-compile.am: AMDEP does not appear in AM_CONDITIONAL
    make[2]: *** [Makefile.in] Error 1
    make[2]: Leaving directory `/root/whiteboards/lopster-1.2.2/src'
    make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/whiteboards/lopster-1.2.2'
    make: *** [all-recursive-am] Error 2
    [root@localhost lopster-1.2.2]# cd src]
    bash: cd: src]: No such file or directory
    why this error has come??...i would be happy if anyone could help me in this....

    with regards,
    bala

    I'm not sure what 'lopster' is/does. As with many programs you need to read the docs that come with it or at the programs homepage for install procedure. Look for a README nad/or and INSTALL file.
