GPlates source release fails to even configure

GPlates keeps failing to configure due to the boost system library missing. I’ve spent 7 hours on this today, set the -DBOOST thing, no avail. I cannot downgrade libboost (my version is 1.76.0) because my system package manager depends on it and downgrading it would break my system. It finds boost_python3 and all other modules, but boost_system reliably fails. Is there a way to fix this?

Hi mrobsidy,

Have you tried the source code mentioned in this post or are you using the source from the public 2.2 release? If you’ve tried the former then can you send your configure error message (and what system you’re running on)?
