While installing nerves on MacOS following the installation guide at https://hexdocs.pm/nerves/installation.html#content I completed the MacOS section and then proceeded to the “All Platforms” section. Everything was going well until I hit the following step:
asdf install erlang 21.1
Where I keep getting the following error:
=== running autoconf in lib ./otp_build: line 319: autoconf: command not found make: *** No rule to make target `clean'. Stop. <$HOME>/.asdf/plugins/erlang/kerl-home/builds/asdf_21.1/otp_src_21.1/configure --cache-file=/dev/null --enable-darwin-64bit --with-ssl=/usr/local/opt/openssl ./otp_build: line 338: ./configure: is a directory
It is correct I do not have a program installed called “autoconf”. I should also note that I have already installed Elixir and Erlang versions prior to starting down the asdf installation path. (Not sure if that is a problem or not. It was not specified on the process to follow if there was pre-existing Elixir/Erlang setup).
