Description Orion Poplawski 2010-07-30 14:29:45 EDT
Description of problem:

Trying to compile paraview (vtk component) I get:

In file included from /usr/include/boost/random.hpp:36:0,
                 from /builddir/build/BUILD/ParaView-3.8.0/VTK/Infovis/vtkBoostRandomSparseArraySource.cxx:29:
/usr/include/boost/random/linear_congruential.hpp:33:52: fatal error: boost/random/detail/disable_warnings.hpp: No such file or directory

Which would appear to be an issue internal to boost.

gnash build also encountered that issue:

Which is part of the gnash build task:
Comment 3 Denis Arnaud 2010-07-31 17:09:24 EDT
New package version (1.44.0-0.4) for Rawhide builds cleanly:
And for F14:

It should solve the issue (once the new version makes its way to the repository).

Hi Orion,

The fixed boost is tagged into the buildroot on F-14. Could you give it another kick?

Comment 7 Benjamin Kosnik 2010-08-03 03:34:31 EDT
This looks to be fixed now:

I checked the build logs: boost 1.44 is found

I'm seeing this, or something like this currently on wesnoth:

Could open another bug request, as it seems you have a different issue here?

Thanks in advance

BTW, the failed build can be seen on Koji:
Comment 11 Denis Arnaud 2010-08-03 15:02:01 EDT
From what I see in the wesnoth build log (, it appears to come from an Autotools-related issue (the configure script is not able to retrieve Boost.IOStreams). Upstream (wesnoth) suggests to use/try scons and/or CMake, instead of the Autotools. It can be a good opportunity to give it a try.

Otherwise, I suggest that you compare wesnoth's configure scripts ( and ??boost??.m4 M4 macro files) with those of working packages (paraview, glob2, rmol, etc.)
Comment 12 Fedora Update System 2010-08-05 10:27:03 EDT
boost-1.44.0-0.4.fc14 has been pushed to the Fedora 14 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
