Next, add the PPA
ppa:boost-latest/ppaand upgrade your installation:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:boost-latest/ppa $ sudo apt-get update
- Look at the latest version Boost library packages available to you and install those that you need:
$ aptitude search boost $ sudo apt-get install libboost1.54-dev
