The xPack CMake is the xPack distribution of the CMake build system.
There are separate binaries for Windows (Intel 32/64-bit), macOS (Intel 64-bit) and GNU/Linux (Intel 32/64-bit, Arm 32/64-bit).
The binary files are available from GitHub releases.
The full details of installing the xPack CMake on various platforms are presented in the separate Install page.
The easiest way to install CMake is with

Compared to the upstream version, the Windows version also supports
spawning scripts via
cmd.exe /c. These scripts are used by npm/xpm
to redirect invocations to the global xPacks store.
On all platforms the packages are standalone, and expect only the standard runtime to be present on the host.
All dependencies that are build as shared libraries are copied locally in the same folder as the executable.
On GNU/Linux the binaries are adjusted to use a relative path:
$ readelf -d library.so | grep runpath 0x000000000000001d (RPATH) Library rpath: [$ORIGIN]
In the GNU ld.so search strategy, the

LD_LIBRARY_PATH, so if this later one
is set in the environment, it should not interfere with the xPack binaries.
Similarly, on macOS, the binaries are adjusted with
otool to use a

Binaries for Windows, macOS and GNU/Linux are provided.
The binaries were built using the xPack Build Box (XBB), a set of build environments based on slightly older distributions, that should be compatible with most recent systems.
- Intel GNU/Linux: all binaries were built with GCC 9.3, running in an Ubuntu 12 Docker container
- Arm GNU/Linux: all binaries were built with GCC 9.3, running in an Ubuntu 16 Docker container (added in mid-2020)
- Windows: all binaries were built with mingw-w64 GCC 9.3, running in an Ubuntu 12 Docker container
- macOS: all binaries were built with GCC 9.3, running in a separate folder on macOS 10.10.5.
The scripts used to build this distribution are in:
For the prerequisites and more details on the build procedure, please see the README-MAINTAINER page.
The first set of tests were performed on Travis, by running a simple script to check if the binaries start on a wide range of platforms and distributions:
