Edd is trying to install WSJT-X on a Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W board. He can't use the Debian package we provide because he has installed a later version of Raspberry Pi OS on his board which means he needs to to compile WSJT-X from sources. He can't do that on the target board because it has insufficient RAM to complete the build. He is able to build on another Raspberry Pi with more resources and then should be able to build a Debian package that he can transfer to the target board and install.

If any of that is relevant to you then let us know what issues you have?

Pardon my ignorance. These discussions are so far above me. Are many of you software professionals or can you point out to me reading to help me better understand?

Good morning Bill
sudo -E cmake .... didn't work. I also tried to install cmake on a fresh OS Bullseye image using the sh script as described on the cmake site - that didn't seem to work either.
On my RPI 4B 4GB I started with a clean RPI OS Bullseye again, installed all the prerequisites from the INSTALL recipe using APT package manager including cmake and built the install and package versions following the recipe. It all works as it should.
Thanks for your help.
Yes, my original goal was to build and install on the RPI Zero W2. Now I must learn how to move the wsjtx package version from one RPI to another.
There is always something else to learn.
Have a nice weekend.

have you tried installing the default cmake package from the Raspberry Pi OS repository?

sudo apt install cmake
