configure: creating ./config.status
config.status: error: cannot find input file: Makefile.in' root@ubuntuserver:~/libmbus-0.8.0# config.status: error: cannot find input file:Makefile.in'

I'm not very good with unix systems, but I work a lot with Mbus devices, and I'm trying to make some test to see if I can use this library, because I think it coul be a very good tool.

Many thanks,

Daniel

Have you tried to run the clean.sh and then the build.sh scripts?

I thought I had solved the problem, but I am not able to install libmbus in debian 7.4 .

I have reviewed the INSTALL file, and I think I'm doing everything right. but always the same error message:

config.status: error: cannot find input file: Makefile.in'
root@ubuntuserver:~/libmbus-0.8.0# config.status: error: cannot find input file:Makefile.in'

Any help will be welcome

Try to run the command

 autoheader \
    && aclocal \
    && libtoolize --ltdl --copy --force \
    && automake --add-missing --copy \
    && autoconf \
    && ./configure

The automake command should generate Makefile.in from Makefile.am
