Installation from sources
1. By default, boost is configured with all libraries. To save time on building boost, you can configure it ony with the libraries you need:
$ ./b2 --prefix=DIR --with-graph --with-serialization --with-mpi
2. Default installation:
- DIR/include/boost_version/boost - DIR/lib/libboost_library_versions.*
Create symbolic links:
$ cd DIR/include; ln -s boost_version/boost $ cd DIR/lib; ln -s libboost_[library]_[version].[a/so] libboost_[library].[a/so] $ export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=DIR/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
To install boost with mpi library, you need to add "using mpi ;" in the file "tools/build/v2/user-config.jam"
