Description Braden McDaniel 2012-04-16 02:00:38 EDT
Description of problem:
Attempting to compile a program using Boost.Thread with gcc 4.7 on Fedora 17 produces error messages like this:

In file included from /home/braden/include/boost/thread/detail/platform.hpp:17:0,
                 from /home/braden/include/boost/thread/thread.hpp:12,
                 from /home/braden/include/boost/thread.hpp:13,
                 from conftest.cpp:28:
/home/braden/include/boost/config/requires_threads.hpp:29:4: error: #error "Threading support unavaliable: it has been explicitly disabled with BOOST_DISABLE_THREADS"

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Comment 1 Braden McDaniel 2012-04-16 02:02:14 EDT
This appears to have an upstream fix:


In the absence of an upgrade to 1.49.0, it would be nice to backport this.
Comment 2 Petr Machata 2012-04-16 08:39:40 EDT
We already carry that patch.  Something else must be broken.  I'll look inside.
Comment 3 Braden McDaniel 2012-04-19 02:07:26 EDT
Nevermind. I had a version of Boost installed in my home directory that I'd completely forgotten about. (Closer inspection of the output I pasted suggests as much.) I'm not seeing the problem with the current version of Fedora 17's boost package.
Comment 4 Paul Wouters 2012-07-23 17:40:54 EDT
Weird. because I just ran into this on F17 with boost-1.48.0-13
Comment 5 Renich Bon Ciric 2013-01-30 11:16:25 EST
Same on Fedora 18. I will reopen the bug.
Comment 6 Braden McDaniel 2013-02-04 01:43:26 EST
You might be seeing the same error message; however, it is either for completely different reasons than led to this report, or you're doing something as silly as I was.

In the former case, you should file a new report.
Comment 7 Thibault North 2013-04-20 21:08:34 EDT
Any update about that ?
The issue is still here on F18, boost 1.50.0.
Comment 8 Denis Arnaud 2013-04-21 02:36:47 EDT
That bug is closed. Could you re-create a bug giving more details, for instance with a minimalist program (C++ source code and Makefile) reproducing the error?
Comment 9 Thibault North 2013-04-22 13:22:40 EDT
Thanks for your answer. I updated the program that was producing this error, and it now works well.
Thanks, and sorry for the noise.
