I am in the process of running some tests on a cluster which has CENTOS 5 x86_64 kernel 2.6.18. I need to install a software there which needs boost>=1.42. I have looked around but cant seem to find the solution. I tried installing via YUM but it only lists boost.x86_64. Can anyone please help me in this? thanks.
