Trouble using cmake to install root on Mac

Greetings to all,

I am trying to install root on my Mac (Yosemite 10.10.5) as per the Build Root instructions here:

I downloaded and uncompressed the source file. It is in my home folder, path is /Users/steffens/root. ‘steffens’ is my last name.

Anyway, when I run ‘cmake /Users/steffens/root’, I get the following output:

“The source directory ‘/Users/steffens/root’ does not appear to contain CMakeLists.txt.”

Can anyone help me figure out what is going on here? Thanks very much in advance.


can you check the content of the directory? Do you actually have a “CMakeLists.txt” file in it?
