Subject: [Boost-cmake] [Query] Using cmake to cross compile
From: Alapkumar Sinha (Alapkumar.Sinha_at_[hidden])

I am pretty new to the boost. I want to cross compile the boost libraries for mipsel-linux.

I understood from some of posts that it cannot be achieved using bjam and best way to use it is CMake.

As a first step, I followed the steps mentioned in the following link to confirm that I am able to build on host linux pc before going for cross compilation.

But when I do "cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/root/Alap/md/ /root/Alap/md/boost_1_43_0". I get this following error:

The source directory "/root/Alap/md/boost_1_43_0" does not appear to contain CMakeLists.txt

Boost_1_43_0 is the folder where I have extracted the boost tar file.

Can someone please help me on this.
