I'm trying to install Aeon on ubuntu following this post.

everything is fine until I try to use the "make" command. Then I keep getting an error for which I have no idea how to fix it:

mkdir -p build/release
cd build/release && cmake -D CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release ../..
-- Boost version: 1.54.0
-- Found the following Boost libraries:
--   system
--   filesystem
--   thread
--   date_time
--   chrono
--   regex
--   serialization
--   program_options
CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:108 (message):
  Boost version 1.54 is unsupported, more details are available here

-- Found Git: /usr/bin/git
-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!

Any clue?

What do you get when you run this: sudo apt install libboost-all-dev

  • Oh my Gaia, that link in the error message in from 2013. Have you checked "Compiling Aeon" section of the repo: github.com/aeonix/aeon

  • Actually, looking into whatever Aeon is, is this even Monero related? I see other Aeon questions on here, but I'm a little skeptical about that. I don't use Aeon. I probably can't help too much. Technically, I answered your question. The clue was in the text you pasted. Best of luck.

  • @Lorax Aeon started as a Monero fork and is considered on topic here: monero.meta.stackexchange.com/a/9/136 Commented Aug 25, 2017 at 17:50
  • @seekadventure, great point. It's nonsensical to send the question to a forum that is even farther from the topic.
