Re: Can't compile latest kicad


Hello Alex,
    I had the same issue compiling with boost 1.67.0.

Compiling with boost 1.69 did not have the issue on my machine (Linux)

May be a change in the cmake files in order to detect older boost versions is needed.

I tried to submit a bug report the usual way but gitlab killed my account and won't let me register a new one for some reason.

The issue is I can't compile the latest kicad from a freshly cloned repository. Error below:

I can't for the life of me figure out what the issue is. I'm running devuan and the cmake process finished without any warnings or errors.
