[lammps-users] installing lammps with cmake

Dear LAMMPS experts, 

I am trying to build lammps with cmake command with cmake3 by using this command line:
cmake3 -C ../cmake/presets/most.cmake      ../cmake

It seemed that installation was successful according to the below report:

Hi Bahman,

The command line you provided is only configuring the compilation options for cmake. You still have to compile and install lammps, that is why the executable is not found.

You can refer to section 3.1.2 of the manual where an example is provided:
