I used another gcc version 4.5 (Ubuntu 11.04) and it works without any problem!

I don’t know what is wrong with gcc-4.6. Though the problematic platform was Kubuntuu 12.04.

I am know trying with Ubuntu 12.04 which uses gcc-4.6 to see if it is really a gcc problem or the platform!


Good luck.


But as a PS, I’m puzzled that you are using such old software, both GCC (on version 7) and Boost (on 1.65) – and Ubuntu too (on 16.04), known to be riddled with many Old Bugs.


I would have thought that you would be much better off without those bugs (even if that adds a few New Bugs) by starting with all new current software. (If management objects, tell them there is a price for using obsolete software, and you are paying it now).
