cmake - Cross-platform Make ChangeLog


# CMake 3.20.0
# ============
# If you'd rather go with pre-compiled binaries:
# Linux x86_64
# Linux aarch64

# To clean up files from an old version before installing this one,
# or to uninstall CMake, skip down to the bottom for instructions

# Prerequisites (in that configure looks for or tries to run them):
# Qt4 (optional; for the Qt-based GUI)
# Subversion (optional)

# Get the source
test -f installed/cmake-3.20.0.tar.gz &&
mv installed/cmake-3.20.0.tar.gz .
test ! -f cmake-3.20.0.tar.gz &&

# Verify tarball w/ sha256sum:
echo "9c06b2ddf7c337e31d8201f6ebcd3bba86a9a033976a9aee207fe0c6971f4755  cmake-3.20.0.tar.gz" | sha256sum -c

# Extract the source
mkdir -p -m 0700 ~/src
cd src
find -maxdepth 1 -type d -name "cmake-*" -exec rm -r {} \;
tar xzvf ~/cmake-3.20.0.tar.gz
cd cmake-3.20.0
test $UID = 0 && chown -R root:root .

# No need to specify using lib64 instead of lib if 64-bit, it will find it

# Configure the build
./bootstrap --prefix=/usr --mandir=/usr/man

# Build it

# Become root to install it

# Remove the Slackware package, if there is one
# Note:
# After the cmake package is removed, you may still have a
# /usr/share/cmake from various packages such as libproxy and
# shared-desktop-ontologies.  The cmake package and the source
# use a version specific /usr/share/cmake-x.x.x
test -x /sbin/removepkg && /sbin/removepkg cmake

# Install the new one
make install

# Make sure your non-root user can remove the source later
chown -R $(logname) .
chmod -R u+w .

# Become yourself again

# Save the source for later
mkdir -p -m 0700 installed
rm -f installed/cmake-*.tar.*
mv cmake-3.20.0.tar.gz installed/

# If you ever want to uninstall CMake, this should do it:
test -d src/cmake-* && ( cd src/cmake-* ; make uninstall )
for pfx in /usr/local /usr;
  ( cd ${pfx}/bin ; rm -f ccmake cmake cpack ctest )
  find ${pfx}/doc -maxdepth 1 -type d -name "cmake-*" -exec rm -r {} \;
  ( cd ${pfx}/man
    rm -f ccmake.1 cmake.1 cpack.1 ctest.1       cmakecommands.1 cmakecompat.1 cmakemodules.1 cmakepolicies.1       cmakeprops.1 cmakevars.1 )
  find ${pfx}/share -maxdepth 1 -type d -name "cmake-*" -exec rm -r {} \;
find ~/src -maxdepth 1 -type d -name "cmake-*" -exec rm -r {} \;
rm -f ~/installed/cmake-*.tar.*
