Test harness build fails for SciDB 15.7


This concerns scidb-, boost library 1.54, and ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS. The test harness failed to build for me. Specifically,


complains about an undefined reference to boost::filesystem::detail::copy_file and the work around in terms of a context diff is

There appears to be a closed boost bug that may apply at https://svn.boost.org/trac/boost/ticket/10038, but I am not a boost expert by any means.


Thanks for sharing the info.
We did not see the build failure so I wonder what may be different between your build process and ours. Did you do anything different from the build instructions we provided?


Yes. I should have mentioned that.

When I first build, I build on my laptop, and I do not use deploy.sh. I just use run.py setup and run.py make. Later I make VMs and build with the official procedure which I have not actually done yet for 15.7.

For the laptop build, I normally update /etc/apt/sources.list.d/paradigm4.list to use the 15.7 repositories, install the packages, update the environmental variables, and use run.py. Since there are no 15.7 repositories, I assumed the build was relative to 14.12 and simply pointed /opt/scidb/15.7 to /op/scidb/14.12. All worked but manager.cpp.
