error: Failed dependencies:
	libboost_program_options.so.1.60.0()(64bit) is needed by grass-7.0.4-7.fc26.x86_64
	libboost_system.so.1.60.0()(64bit) is needed by grass-7.0.4-7.fc26.x86_64

Expected results: installs


Additional info: see also bug #1409006 Comment #4

The problem appears to be that boost is at version 63 while this version of grass insists on version 60 and does not allow higher versions. For example, FC24 includes boost-program-options-1.63.0-5.fc26.x86_64

Workaround is to download grass and force-install using rpm -ivh --nodeps grass-7.0.4-7.fc26.x86_64
