I'm trying to install autoconf view homebrew on mountain lion, I did this
$ brew install autoconf and I got
Warning: Could not link autoconf. Unlinking...
Error: The brew link step did not complete successfully
The formula built, but is not symlinked into /usr/local
You can try again using brew link autoconf
/usr/local/Cellar/autoconf/2.69: 69 files, 2.0M, built in 52 seconds
server:~ europemart$ brew link autoconf
Linking /usr/local/Cellar/autoconf/2.69... Warning: Could not link autoconf. Unlinking...
Error: Could not symlink file: /usr/local/Cellar/autoconf/2.69/bin/ifnames
Target /usr/local/bin/ifnames already exists. You may need to delete it.
To force the link and delete this file, do:
brew link --overwrite formula_name
When I tried
$ brew install autoconf again I get:
Warning: autoconf-2.69 already installed, it's just not linked I've never used homebrew before and have barely any experience with terminal. Anyone able to help me out and get autoconf properly installed?
