Subject: [Boost-users] Undefined Reference to 'boost::system::generic_category()'

Hello everyone,

I have been attempting to install OpenFOAM however the boost library has been giving me trouble, most recently reading out these error during OpenFOAM installation.

undefined reference to `boost::system::generic_category()'
undefined reference to `boost::system::system_category()'
undefined reference to `boost::detail::set_tss_data(void const*, boost::shared_ptr<boost::detail::tss_cleanup_function>, void*, bool)'
undefined reference to `boost::detail::get_tss_data(void const*)'

If anyone has ever encountered this problem before, or has a hypothesis on how to solve I would be eager to hear your advice. I should mention that this error has persisted across multiple attempts at boost installs (1.48.0,1.52, and 1.61.0) as well as an update of my system from Ubuntu 12.04 to 14.04. Thank you everyone for your time in reading this and for any advice you may give.

All the best,
Blair Climenhaga
