The New Boost-70 breaks SDR software


I am using GNU-Radio with gr-osmosdr, gqrx and cubicsdr and SoapySDR with AirspyHF+ and SDRPlay,

good thing i kept the old boost-69 package on my main machine because i had a feeling this would happen, i seen boost upgrades break stuff before, not sure what all will have to be rebuilt but i have a laptop that runs the same install of slackware64-current and same sdr software, so i will upgrade boost on it and see how far back i have to rebuild, more than likely qt5, gnuradio and all the rest i will post my results next week on this same thread, maybe as early as saturday afternoon or sunday, depending on how much time i have to work on this

I was considering updating this evening but held off because of this one. Of course I could have always just left it out. Still, looking forward to the results of your experiments, good luck with it.

boost version bumps usually breaks some 3rd party stuff, e.g. Eric's qbittorrent and libtorrent-rasterbar - but thanks to his ingenuous boost-compat-1.69 package, my qbittorrent still works after today's -current upgrades. And no doubt he will release an upgrade to 1.70 as soon as he finds the time.

thanks kgha. that boost-compat-1.69 package fixed it, eventually all that sdr software will have to be rebuilt to run with boost-1.70.x, for now that boost-compat package will do fine, thanks goes to eric too for making that package

ok, so far i dont know if qt5-5.7.1 requires boost or not but qt5-5.7.1 did build with the new boost, but gnuradio-3.7.13.4 wont build with boost-1.70.x with or without the -DBoost_NO_BOOST_CMAKE=ON option, so gnuradio will more than likely need patched for the new boost

looks like CubicSDR along with its dependencies wxWidgets-3.1.12 and SoapySDR & liquid-dsp all build and run fine with boost-1.70.x (thats good)

but gnuradio will need patched and more than likely gr-osmosdr & gqrx will need to be checked out after gnuradio is fixed

okay, i tried a few different ways to get gnuradio to build with boost-1.70.x and it always fails, -DBoost_NO_BOOST_CMAKE=ON does not change much and it still fails a little further along while compiling, i even ran ccmake . for the terminal gui thing and switched off all not listed to require gqrx to run as listed here https://github.com/csete/gqrx i suspect that it will be up to the gnuradio developers to make it work with boost-1.70, and probably nothing pat v. and his crew can do but wait for gnuradio to be fixed by gnuradio's developers, i think it would be a good idea to keep that older boost-1.69.x slackware package in /pasture, while that boost-compat package enables it to continue running i bet it wont build without the full boost-1.69 package

so i will mark this thread solved

Just to add, as of today it seems like Arch is still on boost-1.69, it has been flagged as out-of-date on (4-12-19), and not yet upgraded. Maybe there is something to that?

Skaendo, then gnuradio needs to work on their product, if most distros are moving to the new boost-1.7.x.x then it is on the gnuradio developers to catch up to what up to date distros offer, a lot of people use gnuradio so i am sure they will have a new source package out that builds with boost-1.7.x.x... fairly soon, might take a few days, or weeks (hope they fix it soon)

There was a bug report submitted to gnuradio 3 days ago, but no comments yet from developers.
