I am new with building software using cmake.
I want to install VTK using cmake. I downloaded the .tar file and un-tared it. This leaves me with a directory that contains some cmake files and some other stuff.
Suppose I have un-tared all files in the directory
/HOME/USER/SETUP_FILES/ and created a directory
When I cd into
/HOME/USER/SETUP_FILES/BUILD and execute
cmake ../. I am able to configure the build.
In the configuration file, I can choose to define
My first question is:
1) What should I enter there?
When I enter for example
/HOME/USER/VTK_PROGRAM this folder is created (after
make install) that contains a
bin/ folder (along with some other folders).
However, in the
/HOME/USER/SETUP_FILES/BUILD there is also a
bin/ folder created.
My second question is:
2) I now have three folders with files. Which one(s) should I keep in order to have a working program:
Is it possible to merge the b) and c) folders?
