How to Fix error “autoreconf: failed to run autopoint: No such file or directory” on CentOS


On CentOS, when executing “autoreconf -i” command in some repository, it prompts following error:

[root@tutorialspots ~]# autoreconf -i
Can't exec "autopoint": No such file or directory at /usr/share/autoconf/Autom4te/FileUtils.pm line 345.
autoreconf: failed to run autopoint: No such file or directory
autoreconf: autopoint is needed because this package uses Gettext

autoreconf error

The solution is installing gettext-tools:

yum install -y gettext-devel

result:

[root@s126368 ladspa]# yum install -y gettext-devel
