Description john5342 2009-07-01 16:58:03 EDT
Description of problem:
When compiling with g++ using the -std=c++0x the tr1 component of the standard library gets pulled in and this conflicts with boost/filesystem/operations.hpp making boost.filesystem useless. This bug is probably also found when using tr1 directly at the same time as boost.filesystem.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Write any code that makes use of boost filesystem
2. Compile with -std=c++0x
Actual results:
Compilation fails due to name collisions/conflicts

Expected results:
Compilation succeeds as expected

Additional info:
Full error messages and a patch are available upstream. Link to upstream bug provided. Only the boost/filesystem/operations.hpp portion of the patch is actually required since boost itself is not compiled with this option. The patch does not break anything and does not effect abi (therefore no rebuilding of deps required).

Backporting this patch would be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance

Turns out that no backporting is necessary, the patch applies flawlessly as it is.  I've included it and built new boost release.  Can you report back whether it fixes your problem?
Comment 2 john5342 2009-07-02 14:15:19 EDT
I am using Fedora 11 but only new builds appear to be for Fedora 12. I have however already confirmed that the header modification solves the problem by manually editing the header file as per the patch on my local system.
Comment 3 Petr Machata 2009-07-03 06:18:31 EDT
Sorry, I don't know why I though that your problem is with Rawhide package.  I'll spin F11 fix later today.
