I'm trying to compile a program on Ubuntu 11.10 that uses the Boost libraries. I have the 1.46-dev Boost libraries from the Ubuntu Repository installed, but I get an error when compiling the program.
undefined reference to boost::system::system_category()
What is it that I do wrong?
The boost library you are using depends on the boost_system library. (Not all of them do.)
Assuming you use gcc, try adding
-lboost_system to your compiler command line in order to link against that library.
