Undefined reference to boost when compiling rviz [closed]

Hi there,

originally I was trying to follow the tutorial on building plugins for rviz. After setting up everything and changing a few things it finally compiled. But on loading the plugin in rviz, rviz would segfault reproducably. I then tried to solve that, but somehow failed. The precompiled tutorial that came with sudo apt-get install ros-visualization-tutorials worked. I then copied those sources to my workspace and recompiled and again rviz would segfault. A colleague of mine then suggested recompiling rviz form source, as this may fix issues with different shared libraries in use. So I downloaded the sources from the repository and set up a workspace. The rviz page then said to use rosmake rviz to compile but that wouldn't work since there was no Makefile and it kept complaining about a ROS_NOBUILD flag. I tried removing that with rosmake -u rviz, but somehow it didn't work. Since the CMakeLists.txt uses catkin commands I then used catkin_make. It seemed to work until this error appeared:

What branch of rviz and ros distro are you using?

I am using the groovy branch for both. I somehow fixed the problem now by compiling rviz on a newly set up machine. Now it will run with the tutorials compiled by me and will run plugins I wrote and compiled. Is somehow a workaround, but fixes my problem for now...
