boost lib problem


i want install a software,which reported that:
"checking for boostlib >= 1.37.0... Failed...
configure: Configure failed with the error message: [We could not detect the boost libraries (version 1.37 or higher).
If you have a staged boost library (still not installed) please specify $BOOST_ROOT in
your environment and do not give a PATH to --with-boost option. If you are sure you have
boost installed, then check your version number looking in <boost/version.hpp>"

when i finished installed boost, i got:
"The Boost C++ Libraries were successfully built!

The following directory should be added to compiler include paths:

/var/soft/boost_1_43_0

The following directory should be added to linker library paths:

/var/soft/boost_1_43_0/stage/lib
"
what should i do next?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi and welcome on LQ!

It looks like you are installing (or compiling even!?) software that needs the boost library package to work.
I have no experience with it, but google (first hit!) turned op boost.org
Have a look there, download and install their libraries and give the "installation" another go!

#./bootstrap.sh
#./bjam

......

The Boost C++ Libraries were successfully built!

The following directory should be added to compiler include paths:

The following directory should be added to linker library paths:

/var/soft/boost_1_43_0/stage/lib

Okay, I get it now, I think...
1) You try to install a program that complained about not being able to find the boost libs
2) You installed the boost libs succesfully
Have you tried step 1 again.
If so, what did it say now?

The safe choice is boost-1.38.
New boost is different. Please see the 'Changelog'.

I guess, you have a very good reason to use /var/ for software ?
' /var/ ' is certainly not meant for that.


How about installing boost : # ./bjam install
.. which should put boost in place : /usr/local/lib/ , etc.

Hi,I have meet the same question.

When I configure the VMware-open-source-view-client using the command “configure --host=sh4-linux CC=sh4-linux-gcc CXX=sh4-linux-g++ “ to configure the VMware-open-source-view-client which is proper running on the ARM architecture.

configure:10578: result: no

configure:10518: checking for exit in -lboost_signals-mt

configure:10578: result: no

configure:10518: checking for exit in -lboost_signals-mt

configure:10578: result: no

configure:10518: checking for exit in -lboost_signals

configure:10553: sh4-linux-gcc -o conftest -g -O2 -DBUILT_BY_root -I/usr/include -L/usr/lib conftest.c -lboost_signals >&5

conftest.c:52: warning: conflicting types for built-in function 'exit'

/opt/STM/STLinux-2.3/devkit/sh4/lib/gcc/sh4-linux/4.2.4/../../../../sh4-linux/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /usr/lib/libboost_signals.so when searching for - lboost_signals

/opt/STM/STLinux-2.3/devkit/sh4/lib/gcc/sh4-linux/4.2.4/../../../../sh4-linux/bin/ld: cannot find -lboost_signals

collect2: ld returned 1 exit statud

My host OS is fedora 11,and I have checked that the boost.signal version is 1.37.0

@ shitou, post # 8 : boost-1.37.0-6.fc11.i586 is installed,
and cannot be used for sh4-linux / arm. Will do for x86 architecture only.

But I guess, you already know that from your other thread with the same question.
