Thanks, the file boost-build.jam works. Then still the
file "project-root.jam" is needed to directs the

To containing all my files in my project, I also tried
to put the "project-root.jam" just in the project
directory /home/hnn/t1 but not /home/, and now it also
worked. Are both okay?

Best regards,

Boost Build has to know where it is installed in order
to find its core
jam files. The recommended way is to create
boost-build.jam and put it
to /home/. The file should have just a single line in

libsrc/boost_cvs/boost/tools/build/v2/kernel ;

Change the path according to your Boost installation.
Don't forget to
add / if you specify absolute path :)
