I currently have cmake 2.6


However, the script I am trying to use with cmake requires 2.8


How do I install / upgrade to 2.8? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

As you're a CentOS user, look at using "yum", eg:


"yum update cmake"


(as root or a priv'd user)

I tried that, all I get is


"Could not find update match for cmake"


I dont know what else to do.

Is this on CentOS 5? Is the system 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x86-64)?


It looks like we will either need to find a CMake 2.8 package from an additional software repository, as the version that CentOS 5 provides is too old, or we will have to install it ourselves from the CMake website.


Either way, I'm sure there will be a fix for this issue!

A "yum search make" should show all the "*make*" packages it can find.


If a specific verison is omitted from the output, then your repos don't have a later version.


One typical fix is to add another repo in so that the yum command does find the newer one, but I know CentOS can be a bit funny about using third-party stuff.


Post the output of that command up there and we'll see where we are then!

cmake is in the default centos repos. just yum install cmake:

cmake.x86_64 : Cross-platform make system
