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.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
1.44.0-4

How reproducible:
100%

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.
