Need boost 1.55 or greater, but...


...unfortunately the build script for what's installed in 14.1 x86_64 doesn't work with the latest boost of 1.57.

About half the time I'm able to keep messing with the build script of something I want to install and actually get it to work properly, but the build script for boost is waaaayyy beyond my non-programmer skills.

The reason I need boost 1.55 or greater is that Ekiga needs 1.55 or greater, and I absolutely refuse to use that crapware skype when there's Ekiga open source.

Anybody up to the task of maybe getting the slackbuild for boost 1.57 working for a 14.1 x86_64 system?

sorry, have you already tried building ekiga from SBo?

http://slackbuilds.org/repository/14.1/network/ekiga/

I say this because it seems to be fine with the boost already in Slackware...

Yes, here's what I have...

Code:
/var/log/packages/ekiga-4.0.1-x86_64-1_SBo
Every time I try to start ekiga (using konsole to see why it isn't starting when just clickin on the icon), I get:

Code:
bluto@the_pen:~$ ekiga -d 4
ekiga: error while loading shared libraries: libboost_signals.so.1.55.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I'm going to delete the ekiga I have on here and rebuild it and see what happens.

Just tried to rebuild ekiga from scratch, and now I get this and can't build it:

Code:
 #  warning                  "Boost.Signals is no longer being maintained and is now deprecated. Please switch to Boost.Signals2. To disable this warning message, define BOOST_SIGNALS_NO_DEPRECATION_WARNING."
    ^
  CC     gmmarshallers.lo
  CC     hal-marshal.lo
  CXXLD  libekiga.la
/usr/bin/sed: can't read /usr/lib64/libEGL.la: No such file or directory
libtool: link: `/usr/lib64/libEGL.la' is not a valid libtool archive
make[3]: *** [libekiga.la] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/tmp/SBo/ekiga-4.0.1/lib'
make[2]: *** [all] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory `/tmp/SBo/ekiga-4.0.1/lib'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/tmp/SBo/ekiga-4.0.1'
make: *** [all] Error 2
What the heck have I done wrong now?

Okay, it seems the proprietary nvidia installer makes this happen.

But, looking at the instructions for the SBo nvidia-driver build has me absolutely confused.

Do I actually need to use the 'COMPAT32="yes"' if I'm only running 14.1 x86_64?

Do I really have to edit my xorg.conf after installing this?

If so, what do I edit and what do I edit it to?

I'm about ready to just give it up, but would like to have an open source voip for in case one day I don't have a phone hard line. Just something for backup is all.

No, just stock 14.1 x86_64.

On my Slackware64-current system, that file is supplied by the mesa package.
Code:
bash-4.3$ ls -l /usr/lib64/libEGL*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root   1224 Aug 26 04:04 /usr/lib64/libEGL.la*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root     15 Aug 26 21:28 /usr/lib64/libEGL.so -> libEGL.so.1.0.0*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root     15 Aug 26 21:28 /usr/lib64/libEGL.so.1 -> libEGL.so.1.0.0*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 124848 Aug 26 04:04 /usr/lib64/libEGL.so.1.0.0*
bash-4.3$ grep libEGL.la /var/log/packages/*
/var/log/packages/mesa-10.2.6-x86_64-1:usr/lib64/libEGL.la

I actually use the nVidia installer rather than the SlackBuild and never build the 32bit compatibility drivers. But then, I never use multilib or Skype or WINE on this system.

If you have previously had your xorg.conf working with the proprietary nVidia driver, you do not need to edit your xorg.conf.

Quote:

My suggestion would be to copy your existing /etc/X11/xorg.conf to a safe location, then use the nVidia installer and allow it to build an xorg.conf file. Then you can inspect that. If you prefer your old xorg.conf, simply copy it back over the nVidia supplied file.

Your problems seem to be related to libEGL.la.
IIRC there is something wrong with libEGL.la that gets installed using the NVIDIA installer directly. I also had the same problems in the past and the fix is to install the NVIDIA driver from slackbuilds.org.
First, remove the NVIDIA driver using the installer withe "nvidia ... --uninstall" option,
then install the nvidia-kernel and nvidia-driver from slackbuilds.org.

Hmm - interesting. I have not seen this problem, but apparently it is known that the proprietary nVidia driver installer can remove the 64bit version of libEGL.la
