I am trying to install POV-Ray 3.7 stable version. I downloaded the source code from github repo.
I followed the instruction for unix system which is described in the README file.
Unfortunately I get error message when I run configure command.
./configure COMPILED_BY="your name <email@address>"
The first error said that it could not find the boost library 1.37 or higher, so I installed the libraries.
sudo apt-get install libboost-all-dev
Now I can locate them as below:
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libboost_date_time.so.1.53.0 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libboost_iostreams.so.1.53.0 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libboost_program_options.so.1.53.0 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libboost_python-py27.so.1.53.0 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libboost_python-py33.so.1.53.0 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libboost_system.so.1.53.0 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libboost_thread.so.1.53.0
And I tried to run the configure again, and the error message is like this.
... checking for boostlib >= 1.37... yes checking whether the Boost::Thread library is available... yes checking for exit in -lboost_thread... yes checking whether the boost thread library is usable... no configure: error: in `/usr/local/povray-3.7-stable': configure: error: cannot link with the boost thread library See `config.log' for more details
So I put additional option
--with-boost-libdir=/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/, but it wasn't successful either.
Can anyone tell me what I am missing?
