    Running a build with CMake is relatively straightforward.

    1) Create your build directory:
    mkdir ~/Downloads/Doomsday-2.1.1/build
    and chdir to it.

    2) Configure the build:
    cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release ../doomsday
    Note what gets printed by CMake here. It will list what gets built and whether there are any missing dependencies. For example, FMOD is optional, so it will say FMOD not found and the build will be done without the FMOD plugin.

    3) Build and install:
    make -jX install
    (replace the X with the number of CPU cores you have, e.g., "-j8")

    The install step should place the files in "~/Downloads/Doomsday-2.1.1/distrib/products".

    Let me know if you have further questions, I'm happy to help.
