Thanks, this was very helpful. I've gotten this up and running, with
help from neal. Here is the message I tried to post: perhaps you could
post it for me.
Red Hat 9 RPMs for boost 1.30.0
I've put source and binary RPMS for x86 up on this site:
This URL can be considered stable. It is expected that these RPMS will
be distributed with future Red Hat Linux os distributions.
I've tried a couple of times to get CVS sources, which include the spec
files for doing this. However, each time I try, I get timeouts.
Therefore, I just used the Malte Starostik/Neal Becker spec files, which
seemed to be fine, and worked well for me. Thanks all!
