Build cmake command-line tool on OSX

Dec 30, 02:05 PM

Download source code from the cmake homepage.
Open the terminal and enter

cd <folder with source code>
sudo make install

The result will be in /usr/local/bin/cmake. If you want to use the Gui, I recommend downloading the pre-build package unless you really want to install Qt 4.x on your Mac. If you have an older version in /usr/bin and are willing to overwrite it, you can compile with

cd <folder with source code>
./bootstrap --prefix=/usr
sudo make install

Do not throw away the source/build directory, you may want to call sudo make uninstall later on.
Or you could simply download the prebuilt Gui application and create some symbolic links from there.

OSX Cmake, install command line tools
