Currently, I am working on CAD software and I need boost library for it. I am installing FreeCAD which demands minimum version of 1.33. here is list of dependencies of FreeCAD https://packages.debian.org/source/jessie/freecad My system is giving me
My system is giving me error about libboost that some packages of libboost are not installed though I installed it. Trying various solutions, now I am building it from source. I download libboost-1.6.0
Steps are same as http://www.boost.org/doc/libs/1_48_0/more/getting_started/unix-variants.html#easy-build-and-install
cd boost_1.60 ./bootstrap.sh --prefix=/usr/local/ ./b2 install
To check version of libboost installed:
$dpkg -s libboost-dev | grep 'Version' or $cat /usr/include/boost/version.hpp | grep "BOOST_LIB_VERSION"
