Hi folks,

can someone using boost >= 1.50 please try building from the following 
branch:

https://github.com/POV-Ray/povray/tree/hotfix/boost1.49-boost_system

The build should work /without/ explicitly specifying -lboost_system 
when running the configure script.

TIA.

Well, boost thread library is usable, but it seems to had a fresh
dependency on mkl library. and it was not installed, so configure failed
on that.


Any hint about the package to install to succeed with mkl ?
(on Ubuntu, at least)

yep confirmed same problem on the buildbot server (ubuntu/boost 1.53)

dunno ... but following returned:

apt-cache search mkl

mklibs - Shared library reduction script
mklibs-copy - Shared library reduction script

found another package:
sudo apt-get build-dep revolution-mkl
sudo apt-get install revolution-mkl

yields same results ... the previous packages found /NO/ updates

Did you already do any probing to identify the change responsible?

We did have some mkl-related change recently.

saw that ... #18 correct?
I added following to my configure run ... LIBS="-lboost_system 
-lboost_thread" --without-libmkl

which effectively by-passes the mkl requirement on the buildbot server

I don't understand adding a requirement (mkl) so the gentoo distribution 
can build only to require other platform(s) to add --without-libmkl clause

btw: make completed just fine, after configure addition

I had hoped the author of #18 knew what he was doing, but apparently he 
didn't fully. I've thrown the change overboard again now, and 
implemented some different changes that I /think/ should be sufficient 
to fix the gentoo distro issue.

Learned a lesson today.


Please try again (both master and the hotfix branch).

Please make sure to /not/ use the LIBS="-lboost_system -lboost_thread" 
setting for the hotfix branch, as the whole point of that hotfix is to 
make configure work reliably without it.

both branches (main & hotfix) pass configure (without LIBS="...") here's 
what relevant configure output looks like:

checking for the pthreads library -lpthreads... no
checking whether pthreads work without any flags... no
checking whether pthreads work with -Kthread... no
checking whether pthreads work with -kthread... no
checking for the pthreads library -llthread... no
checking whether pthreads work with -pthread... yes
checking for joinable pthread attribute... PTHREAD_CREATE_JOINABLE
checking if more special flags are required for pthreads... no
checking for boostlib >= 1.38... yes
checking whether the Boost::Thread library is available... yes
checking whether the boost thread library is usable... yes
checking for sin in -lmkl... no
checking for sin in -lm... yes

and they both have problems during make starting here (there's more):
../vfe/libvfe.a(vfesession.o): In function 
`vfe::vfeSession::Shutdown(bool)':
vfesession.cpp:(.text+0xcd2): undefined reference to 
`boost::thread::native_handle()'
vfesession.cpp:(.text+0xce7): undefined reference to 
`boost::thread::join_noexcept()'
vfesession.cpp:(.text+0xcfb): undefined reference to 
`boost::thread::detach()'

when we get this sorted out, what are the chances of leaving the hotfix 
branch for this kind of testing ... I'd like to add it to buildbot

Not much of a surprise for the master, but shouldn't happen with the hotfix.

So here we go for another update...

I named this particular branch "hotfix/boost1.49-boost_system", which 
obviously isn't a good name if we want to use it as a general hotfixing 
branch ;-)

But I do agree that it's quite a good idea to have buildbot crunch 
through all hotfixes we might throw out, so I just renamed the branch to 
"hotfix".

still problem with hotfix ... on the other branch, git pull origin 
master shows up to date so I didn't bother trying to build from that branch

thanks ... sounds generic enough!
