cmake build crashes when running as user


Using slack 13.0 32-bit.
I built cmake from source following instructions from the bootstrap
executable.

The build was done as root.
When I run
Code:
cmake --version
as root I get the expected message.
Code:
cmake version 2.8.1
When I run
Code:
cmake --version
as user I get
Code:
CMake Error: Could not find CMAKE_ROOT !!!
CMake has most likely not been installed correctly.
Modules directory not found in
/usr/local/bin
Segmentation fault
I don't get a value for env variable CMAKE_ROOT from either
root or user.
Neither do I see a `Modules' directory under /usr/local/bin
Any ideas?
thanks
tim

Why not use Slackware's cmake SlackBuild to build cmake 2.8.1 all you should have to do is bump the version in the build.

I thought cmake now comes with Slackware, at least in 13.0, you should get the official package.

Since the last posting - I have rebuilt using cmake.
The same symptoms persist.

It does. The installation of the awesome window manager requires the
later version.

my CMAKE_ROOT root points to /usr/share/cmake-2.8, the modules directory is in there

My modules directory is in /usr/local/share/cmake-2.8
How do I point CMAKE_ROOT to /usr/local/share/cmake-2.8?

thanks

It looks like a variable so you could do:

Code:
export CMAKE_ROOT=/usr/local/share/cmake-2.8

I thought that too, but I decided to rebuild cmake, so deleted the
cmake binaries from /usr/local/bin and /usr/local/share/cmake-2.8

Now attempting to build for /usr/local/bin, after running ccmake I'm getting this error message:
Quote:
CMake Error: The source directory "/usr/local/bin" does not appear to contain CMakeLists.txt.
Specify --help for usage, or press the help button on the CMake GUI.
Time doesn't permit me to pursue this further right now, so I will
report back after trying a couple other things doing some research.
thanks

Tim,
I encounter the same problem.
If you specify a different install directory:
../bootstrap --prefix=/opt/cmake-2.8.5

Then the install works OK:
/opt/cmake-2.8.5/bin/cmake --version
cmake version 2.8.5
