# How to compile -DCMAKE_USE_OPENSSL=OFF

Hi,

I tried installing cmake with the command “./bootstrap”.
I get this error message:

CMake Error at Utilities/cmcurl/CMakeLists.txt:454 (message):
Could not find OpenSSL. Install an OpenSSL development package or
configure CMake with -DCMAKE_USE_OPENSSL=OFF to build without OpenSSL.

I guess I don’t need OpenSLL, so fine, I could run configure with this flag, but how do I do this? Do I have put this somewhere in a file, or do something else?
I tried running “./bootstrap -DCMAKE_USE_OPENSSL=OFF” but that didn’t work.

Regards,

`bootstrap --help` gives the answer:
`Usage: ./bootstrap [<options>...] [-- <cmake-options>...]`

`-DCMAKE...` is a `cmake` option so you have to specify it this way:
`bootstrap <options> -- -DCMAKE_USE_OPENSSL=OFF`

Thank you. Now it works.
Thank you very much,
