Porting cmake

The good news: It works. Just build from source using the instructions in the cmake (2.8.8) distro.

The bad news: You can't do it in a terminal on the desktop. Compiling goes smoothly but the linker bombs. It guess it runs out of memory. Kill off everything but the "bare" command line and do your "make" from there.

Which distro are you using and is there something wrong with the cmake they are shipping?

I just installed the distro cmake - seemed to work fine. Quite a while ago though.

To answer the question by plugwash, I'm using Debian. There's nothing wrong with the repository version as far as I'm aware, but last time I looked it was several points behind the latest release.

CMake makes cross-compiling very easy..... just run it on your desktop?

I can confirm that cmake builds under Raspian, at least from the basic terminal (without running X). It took a very long time to build, though.
