aclocal not found

aclocal is part of automake package. install automake on cygwin

Not a direct answer, but a workaround:

If you need a command line torrent client for windows, use aria2:

If you're looking for an open source client for windows, you have transmission and qbittorrent

Nope, i am looking only for RuTorrent, yet can't figure out that "aclocal not found". What did i miss? – Family Guy Oct 12 '13 at 23:12
I've edited my answer. :) try installing the automake package in cygwin – medigeek Oct 12 '13 at 23:32
Well that did work, thank you. topic closed. – Family Guy Oct 15 '13 at 10:28

The program 'aclocal' can be found in the following packages:

  • automake
  • automake1.10
  • automake1.4
  • automake1.9
  • automake1.7

Install like this:

install apt-cyg /bin
apt-cyg install automake
