Description Bryan Totty 2014-06-11 16:08:28 UTC
Description of problem:

Some boost libraries are not compatible with devtoolset.

For example, one cannot use C++11 features and #include boost/filesystem/operations.hpp, see below.

~$ rpm -q boost-filesystem devtoolset-2-gcc

~$ cat boost_filesystem.cc 
#include <boost/filesystem/operations.hpp>

~$ scl enable devtoolset-2 'g++ -c -std=c++0x boost_filesystem.cc'
