How long does it take to configure, build and install CMake on a Raspberry pi 3 A+?

I'm aware that CMake is part of the standard package library, but sometimes you need to build a different, or your own version.

    Not sure if this helps your particular use but you can build on a Pi 3 and it will still work on a Pi Zero - will be much faster to build. Feb 14 '19 at 12:13
  • That's good to know! I have a Pi3 somewhere, I may add benchmarks if I find time.

  • Turns out I was actually using a PI3A+, updated question to clarify.

I have recently been through this process and wanted to capture the answer for future reference. These benchmarks were taken using a regular stopwatch.

  • Configure: 30 minutes
  • Make: 80 minutes
  • Make Install: 1 minutes

I was building CMake version: 3.13

using the following steps:

git clone https://github.com/Kitware/CMake.git
cd CMake
mkdir build && cd build
sudo make install
  • Please accept your answer. Only this will finish the question and it will not pop up again and again.
