Compiling from Source

The instructions for in the of BLOC cover common platforms for compiling from source, it would be impractical to include them all. So this page exists to capture the other platforms/distros that BLOC has been successfully compiled on. Please add to it if your environment is not covered, thanks!

Source code

CentOS 7

BLOC build on CENTOS 7 or RHEL 7 with DEVTOOLS 7

$ sudo yum groupinstall 'Development Tools'
$ sudo yum groups mark install 'Development Tools'
$ sudo yum update 

Install devtools 7

# 1. Install a package with repository for your system:
# On CentOS, install package centos-release-scl available in CentOS repository:
$ sudo yum install centos-release-scl # On RHEL, enable RHSCL repository for you system:
$ sudo yum-config-manager --enable rhel-server-rhscl-7-rpms # 2. Install the collection:
$ sudo yum install devtoolset-7# 3. Start using software collections:

Version 1.62 successfully build with gcc 7

$ wget
$ tar xvf boost_1_62_0.tar.gz
$ cd boost_1_62_0
$ scl enable devtoolset-7 bash
$ ./
$ ./b2
