Description Torsten Rohlfing 2009-06-14 20:37:31 EDT
Description of problem:

When including VTK in another CMake-configured project, CMake encounters an error due to an invalid VTK path.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Create a CMakeLists.txt file that contains the following:

  SET(VTK_DIR /usr/lib64)
then run CMake on this project.
Actual results:

CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:263 (INCLUDE):                                                                       
  include could not find load file:                                                                                


Expected results:

CMake finds and configures VTK for use in new project.

Additional info:

It seems that the missing "/" in the generated path is due to the following changes in /usr/lib64/vtk-5.2/VTKConfig.cmake:

# The location of the UseVTK.cmake file.
SET(VTK_USE_FILE "${VTK_INSTALL_PREFIX}lib64/vtk-5.2/UseVTK.cmake")

in vtk5.2 used to be

# The directory containing class list files for each kit.
SET(VTK_KITS_DIR "${VTK_INSTALL_PREFIX}/usr/lib64/vtk-5.0")

in the previous version.

I am having a bit of a hard time tracking down in the VTK cvs what exactly went along with this change, but it seems this could be either a misconfiguration of the Fedora build, or an upstream bug in VTK 5.2.
Comment 1 Torsten Rohlfing 2009-06-14 20:38:25 EDT
Sorry, wrong cut'n'paste -- the VTKConfig.cmake section in 5.0 that corresponds to the one quoted for 5.2 is of course

# The location of the UseVTK.cmake file.
SET(VTK_USE_FILE "${VTK_INSTALL_PREFIX}/usr/lib64/vtk-5.0/UseVTK.cmake")
