Following the "standard" New -C Project -GNU autotools - Hello word...
Does few weird things

1. When I click on Finish it runs "Build(?)" and this is what I get in "console"
Build stopped
()

2. When I actually click on "Build Project" I get this

18:21:57 **** Build of configuration Build (GNU) for project ESA_AUTO ****
make all
make: *** No rule to make target `all'. Stop.

18:21:57 Build Finished (took 96ms)

3. I have NO "main.c" in "src" directory

4. Everything else in all directories looks as "autotools" are installed.


All this in current version of Eclipse Oxygen on Ubuntu.
What is missing and who - OS or Eclipse is at fault?
Better yet, how to fix it.

This seems to be common for autotools, but I do have "configure" file etc.
Just no main and make has nothing to work on.

Sounds as a BUG somewhere in GNU autotools.

Please , real help only - no try this , try that - without a solid reason why,
I can shoot around by myself without anybody's assistance.

Thanks

I don't think Autotools is correct for your needs. Please read <https://www.gnu.org/software/automake/manual/html_node/index.html#Top>.

For an Autotools project, you need to create the files describing your project to the toolset, and use it to create the makefiles to run at 'Make Project'.

If you're compiling for a target processor different from the system your toolset is run on, you'd be better off by just writing the suitable makefile and use it.

For writing makefiles, read <https://www.gnu.org/software/make/>.

Please , in the future read the entire post.

Telling me how to run my project does not answer my questions and you are wasting your and my time.

BTW my errors were due to sequence of installation of all of the necessary files to run autotools.

No more assistance needed.
Thanks
