dependencies is an issue

sometimes dependencies not installed because of versions conflict. so you should select exact lib that you need.

This sounds really cool. I may give CMake a try for my next new project.

Beware of the lack of documentation though...

One inconvenient of CMAKE is that the documentation available online is very brief. If you want to do anything serious with it, I think buying the book is really necessary.

No worse than autohell

The autotools suite suffers from the same lack of clear, simple docs and examples. CMake is at least easy to pick up.

Yep, needs documentation

Seems like a very cool project. I'm trying to pick it up without the book, and I'm having a pretty hard time of it. More publicly available samples of how to do things would go a long way to helping the project reach a critical mass within the community.

You'd think they'd make it more obvious

You can get a fairly comprehensive explanation of a lot of the variables using the command "cmake --help-html > cmake.html" - the resulting file is very useful and quite verbose.

Having said that, this still leaves you badly in need of worked examples.

How about teh KDE4 sources

The KDE4 WebSVN might provide quite a few working examples.

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
