E: Couldn't find package libboost-all & cmake update?


Hey, I'm trying to install libboost-all and libboost-all-dev, but it says the package couldn't be found! Any idea how to install this via putty now?

Also, how can I update my cmake to 2.6.x ? it's at 2.4.7

Thanks!

Would you mind telling what distro and version of Linux you are using?

It seems like something with APT, either Debian or Ubuntu. If it's something with either this or YUM, then try this:

Code:
sudo apt-get install libboost* #if you have Ubuntu or Debian
su -c "yum install libboost*" #if you have Fedora
And you can determine the Linux version by:

Code:
lsb_release -a
Or:

Code:
uname -a
Either of these commands will tell you what distribution and version of Linux you have.

erm, sudo apt-get install libboost* will need 590 mb, thats a bit too much right ?

also: Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 8.04.3 LTS
Release: 8.04
Codename: hardy

Well what all is it telling you to install? 590MB is not much for a 500GB hard drive; in fact, it isn't even as big as an Ubuntu ISO image. And the packages are compressed, so when they download they won't bog down your Internet connection.

you can type:
Code:
sudo apt-get upgrade
To bring all your packages (including cmake) to their latest releases. Or you can use aptitude (you might need to install it first) to individually select and update only cmake.

Just type:

Code:
sudo apt-get install cmake
The 'install' command for apt-get also upgrades individual packages.

Here's some other advice: You said you have Ubuntu 8.04, right? That's what lsb_release said, and it's 6 versions out of date. If you really want to install cmake's newest version, try this:

Code:
sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/johannr/test-ppa/ubuntu lucid main"
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install cmake
It says in the PPA's Packages listing that it installs 2.8.2.

Also : There is no package 'libboost-all-dev' for Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy.

The package name is simply : libboost-dev
http://packages.ubuntu.com/hardy/libboost-dev

( libboost-all-dev is a Lucid-Maverick-Natty package name.)
