[Slackbuilds-users] cmake too old issues

Thanks for the suggestion B.Watson, I'll give it a go. I'm cautious that 
I don't pollute a "clean" system, but hopefully
that should work. If it does, I could always document it, so other 
people with the same issue could use the
same method in their scripts.

I agree that the other method suggested would be problematic, especially 
as it would be hard to add to

I have patched other build packages that were forcing an cmake update, 
but this one was proving too problematic.
I would like to wait for slackware 15 as well, but I don't want to wait 
indefinitely. Hopefully Pat can sort out his
distribution model, and gets happy enough with current to do a release 
soon. "when it's ready" :-)
Although I appreciate the stability of slackware release version, I 
wouldn't want it to be so old that It won't run
current common software, or hardware, but (almost as an oxymoron) I 
wouldn't want to move to "current", because
the base changes too much, and my  internet data allowance is restricted.
Hence I try to "do my bit" to keep software I use current on my 
favourite distro.

Regards, Tim
