And spending two hours compiling a package where only some headers are needed is kind of silly... but not really your problem...> and it offers way, way too much > functionality for us to consider reinventing/reimplementing those parts> of it that we are using.Maybe the relevant headers can be included in ardour? And only used if no newer version is found in the system?This works for some libs (inclusion in ardour that is), why shouldn't it work for some headers?ArnoldBTW: No need to CC me, I read the list (and especially answers to my posts) regularly. :-)Sorry, i couldn't reply because i only received the digest. So I copied the thread.I tried installing boost without the parts that need compilation. I think the necessary header files are now installed on my system, but I am still not able tocompile ardour, because of boost. So i suspect the header files might not be enough after all.I still wonder what parts of boost are used in ardour...I also noticed that ardour looks for boost in /usr/local. All my libraries are in /usr (I work withLinux From Scratch). As a wild guess, I changed the /usr/local references in the boost section of the Sconstruct file (I'm not familiar with scons). After that I could start compiling ardour(so it found boost headers), but it ended with lots of (i think) boost errors.I have not enough space left for the whole of boost on my root partition. So I need to find another solution...thanks for your helplieven
