Hi(gh)!

After I tragically wrecked the mainboard of my PoV-Ray machine, I had to 
buy another (2nd hand) computer to have at least an alternative to the 
tiny 256 MB Windows XP laptop on which I write this message...

But the Ethernet interface of that Celeron/1800 MHz turned out to be 
faulty, so I am not able to automatically update the Linux installation 
(which originally contains no PoV-Ray, neither 3.6 nor 3.7) via the 
Internet.

To install 3.7 once more, I would have to know which boost libraries 
precisely are necessary for that - simply installing everything boost* 
probably might be cumbersome...

See you in Khyberspace!

  I'd say it's the opposite: Installing everything is much simpler than
trying to hand-pick whatever povray needs in particular.

Meanwhile (with another scrapyard computer bought for 10 euros, an 
Athlon XP 2000+ with 512 MB RAM), the Internet connection has somewhat 
returned to normal (still slow, but at least it does not stall anymore - 
could also have been a firmware problem with the DSL router).

After re-installing Debian aptosid "Imera" and doing a full apt-get 
dist-upgrade, I'm once more quite clueless how to proceed with PoV-Ray 
3.7 RC3... meanwhile, aptosid's handling of the boost packages seems to 
have changed - when I try apt-get install boost* now, I get a long list 
of packages conflicting with already installed "46" versions of them:

libboost-date-time1.48-dev
libboost-filesystem1.48-dev
libboost-graph-parallel1.48-dev
libboost-graph1.48-dev
libboost-iostreams1.48-dev
libboost-math1.48-dev
libboost-mpi-python1.48-dev
libboost-mpi-python1.48.0
libboost-mpi1.48-dev
libboost-program-options1.48-dev
libboost-python1.48-dev
libboost-regex1.48-dev
libboost-serialization1.48-dev
libboost-signals1.48-dev
libboost-system1.48-dev
libboost-test1.48-dev
libboost-thread1.48-dev
libboost-wave1.48-dev
libboost1.48-dbg
libboost1.48-dev
libboost1.48-doc

How should I proceed now?

See you in Khyberspace!

Install the meta-package for 1.46 or 1.48, not both.

Details for an Ubuntu (without io restrictons, personal taste):

Sounds interesting - but my distro is Debian aptosid rather than Ubuntu! 
I know that Ubuntu is also a branch a Debian, but...

See you in Khyberspace!
