Ticket #250 (closed defect: fixed)
GPP configure fails with Boost library naming
|Reported by:||ttsou||Owned by:||shereef|
The autoconf macros from GPP won't pick up Boost libraries that follow official naming conventions http://www.boost.org/doc/libs/1_37_0/more/getting_started/windows.html#library-naming. Notably, this will occur if you upgrade the Boost 1.34 version in FC10 to 1.35+ from source to work with GNURadio. Generally speaking, GPP won't find Boost libs built from source and possibly other non-Fedora distributions that use Boost without "--layout-system" naming. There is a set of macros by Thomas Porschberg http://autoconf-archive.cryp.to/ax_boost_base.html that manages boost libraries quite well; I recommend using them.
