In this tutorial, we will show you how to install CMake on Fedora 35. For those of you who didn’t know, CMake is a free, open-source, and cross-platform compiler designed to build native environments, generate wrappers, and build executables in arbitrary combinations. It is also designed to support complex directory hierarchies and applications dependent on several libraries.
This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘
sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the CMake on a Fedora 35.
- A server running one of the following operating systems: Fedora 35.
- It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
- SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
non-root sudo useror access to the
root user. We recommend acting as a
non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.
Install CMake on Fedora 35
Step 1. Before proceeding, update your Fedora operating system to make sure all existing packages are up to date. Use this command to update the server packages:
sudo dnf upgrade sudo dnf update sudo dnf install gcc gcc-c++ openssl-devel bzip2-devel libffi-devel zlib-devel make
Step 2. Installing CMake on Fedora 35.
- Install CMake using the default Fedora repository.
By default, CMake is available on Fedora 35 base repository. Now run the following command to install CMake on your system:
sudo dnf install cmake
- Install CMake from the official page.
Run the following command below to download the latest Cmake from Github:
Next, extract the archive downloaded using the following command:
tar -zxvf cmake-3.22.2.tar.gz cd cmake-3.22.2
Finally, use the following command to compile CMake:
sudo ./bootstrap sudo make sudo make install
Verify CMake version:
cmake version 3.22.2 CMake suite maintained and supported by Kitware (kitware.com/cmake).
Congratulations! You have successfully installed CMake. Thanks for using this tutorial for installing the CMake on your Fedora 35 system. For additional help or useful information, we recommend you check the official CMake website.
