Boost failing on compiler version

I just updated all source and tried to build a clean build_maidsafe on Debian (last success was Jan18) but the boost library (now 1.57, was 1.55) complains about g++ 4.8 not matching required 4.8.2.

“g++ --version” says I have 4.8.2 (“which g++” says /usr/bin/g++ and this also reports itself as 4.8.2). CMakeFiles.txt also agrees c++ compiler is:

CheckCompilerVersion:INTERNAL=c++ (Debian 4.8.2-1) 4.8.2;Copyright (C) 2013 Free Software Foundation, Inc.;This is free software; see the source for copying conditions. There is NO;warranty; not even for MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.;;

Any clues as to what’s going wrong here?



Yes it is a bug intruded in a push to support Arch. IF you revert this (just tweak your copy) then it will be fine.

A bug has been raised for this [MAID-753] - JIRA
