Hello everybody.

I have Ubuntu 64 bits 10.04 with kernel 2.6.32-38-generic and gcc (Ubuntu 4.4.3-4ubuntu5.1) 4.4.3. The problem I have is that I need to compile ROS (Electric or Fuerte) with boost 1.47, but it looks like it only works for boost 1.41 or lower. Is there any workaround?

Following this tutorial , I've successfully compiled ROS Fuerte with boost 1.41. But when I try to compile ROS Fuerte with boost 1.42 (or higher, I've also tried with boost 1.44 and 1.47 and they give even more errors), and this is the output I get:

~/ros-underlay/build$ make -j

[Everything goes ok up to the following point]

Before executing make, I execute cmake, with the following result, which perhaps could be helpful in guessing what's happening:

~/ros-underlay/build$ cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/opt/ros/fuerte
CMake Error: The source directory "/home/findeton" does not appear to contain CMakeLists.txt.
Specify --help for usage, or press the help button on the CMake GUI.

Can you run the following instead of "make -j", and then add the results to your question? "export VERBOSE=1; make -j1"

It looks like you might need to add -lboost_program_options to the linker flags exported by rospack in it's manifest. Searching for the error returns a lot of hits suggesting this might be a change in boost 1.42. my search

On Ubuntu Precise (12.04), ROS Fuerte uses boost 1.46.1-5ubuntu3.

And how do they achieve to compile ROS Fuerte with boost 1.46?
