Hi All, I got the message below while compiling documentation (make doc).
Something missed in TeX installation, but it is not clear what.
My system: RedHat 6.4/64-bit

Comment 1 Gael Guennebaud 2013-06-10 00:11:29 UTC
I think the problem is that  we specify:

cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 2.6.2)

while we likely require a more recent cmake version, like 2.8.x
Comment 2 Jitse Niesen 2013-06-17 23:18:43 UTC
Specifically, we use "cmake -E rename" in the doc file which is not present in cmake 2.6.4 (I had to install that version to find this out). As far as I can make out, it was added in cmake 2.8.0. Additionally, FindFFTW uses the QUIET keyword in the pkgconfig macro, which was introduced in cmake 2.8.2. Hence, I specified that we need at least that version (not sure that it suffices though). 

changeset:   5352:355f818042a4
summary:     Require at least cmake version 2.8.2 (bug 606).
Comment 3 Gael Guennebaud 2013-06-18 00:50:10 UTC
Thanks a lot for finding the right version. Works for me after compiling cmake 2.8.2, so let's close it.
