Installing C++ Boost on Gentoo and Debian/Ubuntu

C++ Boost on Gentoo:

on the shell prompt, type:

$ emerge boost

this should install the latest version of boost available for Gentoo. Currently, the latest version of boost, version 1.33.1, is available for Gentoo. synchronise('emerge –sync') with the gentoo portage if your 'emerge -p boost' shows an earlier version.

C++ Boost on Debian/Ubuntu:

$ apt-get install libboost-date-time1.33.0 libboost-doc libboost-filesystem1.33.0 libboost-graph1.33.0 libboost-program-options1.33 libboost-python1.33.0 libboost-regex1.33.0 libboost-signals1.33.0 libboost-test1.33.0 libboost-thread1.22.0

you can use the following simple command to install every library present in boost that matches a pattern, if you don't want to be selective about which libraries to install:

$ apt-get install libboost.*1.33.*

once the boost package is installed, the C++ programs that make use of boost libraries can be built simply like this:

$ g++ -o first first.cpp

if the program needs to be linked to a library(for eg: filesystem library), then specify the name of the library using the -l switch:

$ g++ -o second second.cpp -lboost-filesystem

will follow up with the installation procedure for Slackware and RPM based distributions.
