Install/Upgrade cmake 3.10.1 in Ubuntu 14.04 using alternatives
Friday - Dec 22nd 2017 - by - (2 comments)

In a previous article, I described how it's possible to Install and use cmake 3.4.1 in Ubuntu 14.04 using alternatives.

Since then a couple of new versions were released and the same procedure can still be used to install cmake 3.10.1.

Download and compile:

wget http://www.cmake.org/files/v3.10/cmake-3.10.1.tar.gz
tar -xvzf cmake-3.10.1.tar.gz
cd cmake-3.10.1/

Make's install command installs cmake by default in /usr/local/bin/cmake, shared files are installed into /usr/local/share/cmake-3.10.
To install (copy) the binary and libraries to the new destination, run:

sudo make install

If you haven't already installed a newer cmake installation, run the following command to tell Ubuntu that the cmake command is now being replaced by an alternative installation:

sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/cmake cmake /usr/local/bin/cmake 1 --force

If you already have a custom cmake version installed (in my case I still had the 3.4.1 version active), the update-alternatives command is not necessary. The make install command will replace the existing binary in /usr/local/bin/cmake. This can be verified using:

cmake --version
cmake version 3.10.1

CMake suite maintained and supported by Kitware (kitware.com/cmake).

You forgot to update the version in the line:
tar -xvzf cmake-3.4.1.tar.gz
and the one after that.
