Here in fedora they are in /usr/lib64/

Also i think you can tell cmake to ignore boost if the version is too low:

CMakeLists.txt -

set(MINIMUM_BOOST_VERSION 1.58.0)
Just a reminder to myself besides installing boost-python3-devel (fedora). Had to set following symlink in /usr/lib64 (fedora) or /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ (ubuntu)

Code: Select all

ln -s libboost_python3.so.1.66.0 libboost_python3-py36.so

There is no need to do that. First of all the FindBoost CMake module takes care of such platform library naming differences (the symlink name is not the default style Fedora names development libraries, so you are breaking your installation in a subtle way that will bite you in the arse in the future). Also the non-versioned so file is always provided by the corresponding devel package

To find possible candidates you can use `dnf whatprovides` with or without globbing:

Code: Select all

$ sudo dnf whatprovides *libboost_python*.so
