Q: What is the correct way to build sim using cmake?

A: First create a build directory outside the source code, then cd to that dir and run, for example:

mkdir -p sim/source sim/build

Put the source code in the source dir, cd to the build dir and run:

cmake ../source

That will run cmake's configure checks which will check if you have got every programs/libraries/headers,that are needed to compile sim. If you want to tune some of the variables, you can either use the interactive mode of cmake

cmake -i ../source

or you can use cmake's nice gui:

ccmake ../source

If that is done just run


in the build dir to build sim. When it finished, run

make install

to install sim.
