 35 POV-RayDocumentationFeature RequestAllVery LowLow problem parsing +i option in povray-3.7.0.beta.32 on li ...Closed
Task Description

The commands:

povray +i /home/ronis/Nm=500/povray.00001.pov


povray +i/home/ronis/Nm=500/povray.00001.pov

fail with: povray: this pre-release version of POV-Ray for Unix expires in 2 day(s) and 1 hour(s)
Failed to parse command-line option

Going to the directory and simply running: povray +i povray.00001.pov

I came across this by accident trying to get emac’s povray mode to work; apparently it passes the full path name to povray.

I don’t think there is a problem in 3.6.1

 34 POV-RayConfigure/BuildPossible Bug3.70 beta 32Very LowCritical configure: error: Could not link against boost_thread-b ...Closed
Task Description

I’ve been trying to upgrade povray 3.6.1 to 3.7-beta-32. I’ve configured with no additional arguments, and the configure dies with:

checking whether to build the boost thread library from sources... no
checking for boostlib >= 1.35... yes
checking whether the Boost::Thread library is available... yes
checking for exit in -lboost_thread... no
checking for exit in -lboost_thread-boost_thread... no
configure: error: Could not link against boost_thread-boost_thread !

I figured that the problem was with my boost installation (1.35) and upgraded boost to 1.39; the problem remains. I tried to see if exit was defined in libboost_thread and/or libboost_thread-boost_thread and it isn’t. Just to be sure that my currrent setup works for the released version, I rebuilt/reninstalled 3.6.1, which went without problem.

I’m on a slackware-12.2 box, using gcc-4.4.0.
