I need help with error building wheel for cmake on raspberry pi 4

In order to install frequent-cron on my Raspberry Pi 4B, I’m trying to install cmake.
To do so, I tried…
sudo pip install cmake
I expected it to set up cmake, but I’m getting the following output instead:

pi@raspberry:/usr/bin/tests $ sudo pip install cmake

I think you are in luck - there seems to be a clear end goal for this.

Thanks for the feedback. I hope you’re right, but reading the thread I feel like I’m in over my head.

Is that usable with a rasberry pi 4B with quad-core Arm Cortex-A72 CPU?
