I’m not certain, but perhaps the problem is with the version of BOOST. I installed Boost 1.75 set the path, and tried to build libosmium from the cmake file using Visual Studio, and got this > error :
Error CMake Error at E:\libosmium\libosmium\CMakeLists.txt:162 (message):
PLEASE, specify the directory where the Boost library is installed in BOOST_ROOT
libosmium E:\libosmium\libosmium\CMakeLists.txt 162
Checking the CMakeLists, there is this code :
set(BOOST_ROOT “NOT FOUND: please choose” CACHE PATH “”)
message(FATAL_ERROR “PLEASE, specify the directory where the Boost library is installed in BOOST_ROOT”)
So it would seem, boost version is specific to the osmium version. I believe this is an older version of libosmium, I am trying, but perhaps the one I was trying to install was not happy with the version of boost it found.
I’ll download boost 1.38 (if it’s available) and see if that’s really the issue.
