    Hello All! I'm new to crypto-currency, mainly interested in mining out of curiosity.
    I've been trying for some hours now to figure out how to compile ccminer. Tried tpruvot version, didn't get anywhere, then tried sp-hash version, same problems.

    Background: Arch Linux x86_64, have autoconf, automake, all build tools, newest CUDA. Card is GTX 750ti

    Basically, I git clone the repo, or download the tar.gz, then go to run ./build.sh

    I have the same problem no matter which version or how I acquired it. Am I missing files? I'm really stumped. I compile other complex software on a regular basis but usually without any kind of issues. I tried searching the internet and found nothing relevant. What is my problem? If I'm missing this configure.in file, why?

    make: *** No rule to make target 'distclean'. Stop.
    clean
    /usr/bin/m4: cannot open `configure.in': No such file or directory
    Usage: autoconf [-h] [--help] [-m dir] [--macrodir=dir]
    [-l dir] [--localdir=dir] [--version] [template-file]
    automake: error: autoconf failed with exit status: 1
    done
    ./configure.sh: line 10: ./configure: No such file or directory
    make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.

    I thank you in advance, if I can't get past this I won't get anywhere...

    Well, now that I go and make a thread I figured out the problem. My system was using old autoconf 2.13 because I previously needed it to compile some other software. Using 2.69 it works fine!

    Sorry for the interruption, I look forward to helping out here when I can!

    Note for any others compiling on Arch Linux, you also need to edit configure.sh to tell it that CUDA is in /opt/cuda
