Because of a problem in Boost V1.54.0 this version can't be used for compiling HPX if you use gcc V4.6.x. Please use either an earlier or a later version of Boost with this compiler.
Because of a problem in Boost V1.55.0 this version can't be used for compiling HPX if you use MSVC2013. Please use either an earlier or a later version of Boost with this compiler.
The easiest way to create a working Boost installation is to compile
Boost from sources yourself. This is particularly important as many high
performance resources, even if they have Boost installed, usually only
provide you with an older version of Boost. We suggest you download the
most recent release of the Boost libraries from here: Boost
Downloads. Unpack the downloaded archive into a directory of
your choosing. We will refer to this directory a
Building and installing the Boost binaries is simple, regardless what platform you are on:
cd $BOOST bootstrap --prefix=<where to install boost> ./b2 -j<N> --build-type=complete ./b2 install
<where to install boost> is the directory the
built binaries will be installed to, and
<N> is the
number of cores to use to build the Boost binaries.
After the above sequence of commands has been executed (this may take
a while!) you will need to specify the directory where Boost was installed
<where to install boost>)
while executing cmake for HPX as explained in detail
in the sections How
to Install HPX on Unix Variants and How
to Install HPX on Windows.
On Windows, depending on the installed versions of Visual Studio, you
might also want to pass the correct toolset to the
