What CentOS 6 package name do I need to install boost header files:

yum install boost doesn't seem to work. Is there a special compiler directive I need to use to point to the include files? Or is there another package to install?


A good method of checking if the header files are available in a package (CentOS or RHEL): yum search $PROGNAME | grep dev.


Figured it out:

yum install boost-devel

  • How did you link to the files after installation? – Person93 Jun 28 '17 at 19:41
