http://stackoverflow.com – I was doing make on my project and this is what I got on my console in Ubuntu - /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lboost_iostreams collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status I am not sure what does it mean and how to fix it? Any thoughts and suggestions? I just have uninstalled BOOST 1.49.0 my machine like this - dpkg -S /usr/include/boost/version.hpp This will return the package that has this file, then you can: sudo apt-get autoremove package and installed BOOST 1.54.0 like this - wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/boost/files/boost/1.54.0/boost_1_54_0.ta... tar -xvzf boost (HowTos)
