cmake not working

I am trying to install on a Dyne:bolic installation from a tar file.

I found the cmake . etc, instructions, but everytime I use cmake . I get a "Do you want to correct to 'make' error, which leads to an invalid command error when I say yes or no. Am I using the wrong version of Kdenlive?

I think that the cmake instructions were for use with an SVN checkout/install.
Using the tarball, you might want to try the old:
./configure (+options)
make
sudo make install

Make sure you have all the libraries and depends installed.

No luck. Keep getting a permission denied error, even as superuser. Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?
