openbabel 2.3 compile with boost library

Bing Xiong
Dear all:
 I try to compile openbabel 2.3 in my linux computer. The gcc compiler in my computer is 3.XX, so I installed boost for supporting openbabel.
 After installed boost, I don't know how to enable openbabel find the boost head files. should I include the boost head file in cmake? or should I set a variable for boost, so openbabel can find these head files? Thanks in advance!
 
Best regards,
 
Bing Xiong

Hi Bing Xiong,

First of all, we recommend you check whether a package for GCC 4.x is
available for your computer. We no longer support GCC 3.x (although it
should work for you) and I no longer have access to a GCC 3.x
compiler.

The following is taken from FindBoost.cmake in my CMake installation:

#   BOOST_ROOT or BOOSTROOT      The preferred installation prefix for
searching for
#                                Boost.  Set this if the module has
problems finding
#                                the proper Boost installation.
#
#   BOOST_INCLUDEDIR             Set this to the include directory of
Boost, if the
#                                module has problems finding the
proper Boost installation
#
#   BOOST_LIBRARYDIR             Set this to the lib directory of Boost, if the
#                                module has problems finding the
proper Boost installation

You should try defining one (or all) of these during the CMake
configuration, e.g. cmake -DBOOST_ROOT=/home/noel/Tools/boost. Let us
know if it works...
