I’m trying to use boost 1.62 on xenial but have trouble with installing it. Xenial has boost 1.58 by default. What I’ve tried so far:
- Building boost -> Too long and build does get killed
- Checking xenial backports -> Still using 1.58
- Finding a suitable PPA on launchpad. (Then again I’ve never used any PPA before so I’m not 100% sure what I’m doing on that.)
I have to install the following packages: libboost-dev libboost-thread-dev libboost-system-dev libboost-filesystem-dev libboost-program-options-dev libboost-regex-dev libboost-iostreams-dev
Can you give me some pointers on how to do it?
Should I try and learn to create my own PPA or is there an easier solution I’m missing?
