Description Hedayat Vatankhah 2010-12-25 23:47:40 UTC
Description of problem:
Boost library provides a random_device class, which is not a header-only class. So, to use this class in a code, the code should be linked with the library containing the implementation of this class. But Fedora doesn't provide any appropriate libraries.

Fix boost build

CMakeLists of random library doesn't mention src/.  This patch adds the necessary scaffolding.  I have a build in progress and it seems to be doing the right thing (except that I need to adjust the spec file).  Note that this is not upstreamable, the patch patches generated files.  I'll need to look into that.
