CMake-3.2.2

Introduction to CMake

The CMake package contains a modern toolset used for generating Makefiles. It is a successor of the auto-generated configure script and aims to be platform- and compiler-independent. A significant user of CMake is KDE since version 4.

This package is known to build and work properly using an LFS-7.7 platform.

Installation of CMake

If Qt4 and Qt5 are installed in /opt, use source setqt4 or source setqt5 to choose which one will be used to build the Qt-based GUI.

Install CMake by running the following commands:

./bootstrap --prefix=/usr       \
            --system-libs       \
            --mandir=/share/man \
            --no-system-jsoncpp \
            --docdir=/share/doc/cmake-3.2.2 &&
make

To test the results, issue: bin/ctest -j<N> -O ../cmake-3.2.2-test.log, where <N> is an integer between 1 and the number of threads of your processor, inclusive.

Now, as the root user:

make install

Command Explanations

--system-libs: This switch forces the build system to link against Zlib, Bzip2, cURL, Expat and libarchive installed on the system.

--no-system-jsoncpp: This switch removes the JSON-C++ library from the list of system libraries. A bundled version of that library is used instead.

--qt-gui: This switch enables building of the Qt-based GUI for CMake.
