autotools and versions


I'm moving my projects from hand written Makefiles to automake/autoconf
and I have a problem with closing versions.
I have in my Makefile special target "release" which generates final
version of project. It:
- increases version number,
- make clean
- make all
- make package
Where make package creates DEB package of my project.

It there some "right way" to do the same with autoconf/automake ?
How can I add my special targets in Makefile.am (or may be somewhere
else?), so they will call my own scripts, which will send DEB package to
repository ?

best regards

This is not a C language question, you need to ask somewhere that
automake and autoconf are topical. I suggest you check out the GNU
mailing lists and various Linux groups and lists to find somewhere

Hi folks, I am developing a apache2 so module in c++. At the moment, I'm trying to get it to compile with automake & friends, but don't get it to work. I tried to modify the example in the programmer-docs. I created a simple c++ project and deleted the src subdir and copied my sourcecode files into the basedir. (That's not where I want to let them in the end, but I thought it might be easier in the beginning) Then I copied the sample...

The attached proposal is written primarily for Debian. Its motivation is that the current package upgrade process is pretty flaky and also that the current packaging does not really provide for multiple simultaneous postmasters, which are wanted by people hosting several database clusters.

After reading and experiencing the phenomenon of installing MS Office 2000 on a system that already has MS Office 97, or for that matter just Access 97 Runtime, I saw the ugliness that ensues. If one elects the standard installation, then Office 2000 deletes a large percentage of the older files. Of course, if one happens to choose Custom installation and elects not to uninstall prior versions, then things are happier. Yes, the archives...

I don't know much about autotools or Berkeley db (bdb) but they are being used by a program I'm trying to compile and it's causing me problems. The line which is the culprit is in a configure.ac file and it's: AC_CHECK_LIB(db, db_create, ,AC_MSG_ERROR()) This is what ends up causing the configure script to fail. The thing is, I am pretty sure I have the newest bdb installed on my system. I am able to compile the following bdb-dependent...

If you develop for others, you probably have multiple versions of Access installed so you can edit and create MDEs for clients in different versions. This works fine under Windows XP, even with Access 2007 installed. It does *not* work under Windows Vista Ultimate. After running Access 2007, when you open an earlier version of Access, no code works, because the references are fouled up. And Access 97 does not work at all. Access should...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
