Thanks for the package!

I compiled this today because the mingw GCC does not have support for the filesystem library (or the experimental version) yet.

@xantares: the process resulted in these libraries (and the associated .a): libboost_serialization-mt.dll, libboost_wserialization-mt.dll. Hopefully the 1.66 version solves the problem you noticed earlier.

as for the 1.65 release I cannot build the boost.serialization dll to build, this is a know upstream problem, so for now I'm stuck

makedepends needs wget

@Pse, thanks added it, I guess the error appears from the mingw-gcc 5.1 update

Can not build 1.58:

Where do you define that? I tried adding -D compiler flags but the build still fails for me.

I had to add the following definitions for Boost to compile on my 64-bit system:

@schala: i cant update 1.58 just yet; the coroutine lib does not build because of a symbol problem in boost.context

xantares commented on 2014-11-20 12:45

could you use the right mingw flags (
cxxflags=-std=c++11 \
cxxflags="-O2 -g -pipe -Wall -Wp,-D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2 -fexceptions --param=ssp-buffer-size=4" \
(is -std=c++11 flag still necessary ? the core package doesn't have that)

Could you be more specific about error messages, etc.? It should build on x86_64 without any changes. Note that yaourt usually compiles packages in /tmp and boost needs a lot of space, so you need a lot of RAM for that to work - "yaourt --tmp /some/directory/on/disk/ -S mingw-w64-boost" should work, if that's the problem.
