    cmake installation on Scientific Linux 6

    I was trying to install cmake in my own area on SL6. I downloaded cmake-2.8.7.tar.gz from But when I build it, there are some errors. And I don't know how to solve it.

    Linking CXX executable ../bin/ccmake
    /usr/bin/ld: CMakeFiles/ccmake.dir/CursesDialog/cmCursesMainForm.o: undefined reference to symbol 'keypad'
    /usr/bin/ld: note: 'keypad' is defined in DSO /lib64/ so try adding it to the linker command line
    /lib64/ could not read symbols: Invalid operation
    collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
    make[2]: *** [bin/ccmake] Error 1
    make[1]: *** [Source/CMakeFiles/ccmake.dir/all] Error 2
    make: *** [all] Error 2

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    Add the atrpms repository to your yum installation. Then you can install it directly with yum. I run scientific linux 6 and that's how I did it. So, first install the package atrpms.noarch, and then install cmake. Done deal!
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
