I installed boost 1.54 libraries on ubuntu 12.04, and it seems to conflict with my installation of libboost-all-dev, so i want to uninstall boost 1.54 libraries completely. How to uninstall the one installed from source?


just looking at http://lists.boost.org/boost-users/2005/01/9444.php which says to delete /usr/local/lib/libboost* and /usr/local/include/boost

    Wow. They really do not offer other less "manual" method.
