Set path to Boost libraries #1872

merged 3 commits into from Aug 3, 2019

commented Aug 2, 2019


It is now required to have Boost libraries installed globally in the system to build CMake-based unit tests locally (this change was introduced in #1869). This PR changes the paths to Boost libraries back to $BOOST_ROOT which is set by CI scripts.

Note: This is a temporary solution. Ideally, we'd want all necessary paths to be detected and set using built-in CMake mechanisms.

Steps to Test

  • Run source ci/
  • Run ci/
  • Compile and run CMake-based unit tests.

  • [internal] Set path to Boost libraries #1872

@sergeuz I put random in this list because of <particle-iot/device-os>/ci/, but based on the list in your first PR, we may not need to check for it.

@zfields The boost path changes work like a charm, thank you! I enabled multithreading support in Boost – not sure why we were building it in single-threaded mode
