Where are the boost libraries?


#1

Hi Guys,

I need libboost for a project I am compiling and I did :

apt install libboost-dev

But when I checked /usr/lib/ could not see any libraries installed.

Had a go at building the boost libraries manually but no success.

What am I missing here?

This is for a Vim running Vim_Ubuntu-server-16.04_V170120.

For anyone that comes after me :slight_smile:

  1. apt install libboost*

( installed everything )

  1. Then in /usr/lib/aarch64-linux-gnu/ had to manually create symlinks for each of the boost libraries. Not sure what was going on here but I fixed it anyway. This was to build a library called CGAL.
