I tried to compile Monero Core for Debian platform, but I got this error

Could not find Boost libraries, please make sure you have installed
Boost or libboost-all-dev (1.58) or the equivalent.

What should I do in order to resolve this problem?


On Debian and Ubuntu platforms the highest available version of Boost is 1.55 . You have to download 1.58 sources and install it.

wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/boost/files/boost/1.58.0/boost_1_58_0.tar.gz 

decompress the archive

tar -xf boost_1_58_0.tar.gz

then navigate to the folder

cd boost_1_58_0

and run the bash script for configuration of building Boost


Finally compile!


Install by sudo ./bjam install

After installing new Boost version, execute on Monero source code folder:

make clean
