Building POV-Ray 3.7

Postby topolinik on Sun Mar 16, 2014 6:33 am

Official debian repos still provide povray 3.5 and 3.6, so I built the latest release by myself.
Use synaptic in order to get required libraries (such as libpng, libjpeg, libgif, openexr, libboost - all of them with -dev packages!) but a further trick is needed.
In /usr/lib you need to create the following symlinks:
  • libboost_thread.so -> libboost_thread.so.1.54.0
  • libboost_system.so -> libboost_system.so.1.54.0
otherwise configure won't be able to detect both libraries and will fail.
