Bug 851 - Unable to make benchmark suite with relative path to source
Summary: Unable to make benchmark suite with relative path to source

Description Kevin locke 2014-08-06 05:32:01 UTC
Following the instructions from using the following commands:

tar -xjf eigen-eigen-1306d75b4a21.tar.bz2
mkdir eigen-eigen-1306d75b4a21/build
cd eigen-eigen-1306d75b4a21/build

Results in the following error among the other cmake output:

CMake Error at cmake/FindEigen3.cmake:33 (file):
  file Internal CMake error when trying to open file:
  for reading.
Call Stack (most recent call first):
  cmake/FindEigen3.cmake:59 (_eigen3_check_version)
  bench/btl/libs/eigen3/CMakeLists.txt:8 (find_package)

And cmake fails without creating bench/btl/Makefile (and likely many other files) required for the next step.

Changing ".." to the absolute path (/tmp/eigen-eigen-1306d75b4a21 in the example) avoids the issue.
