Installation issue on Ubuntu 20.04

Asked by Michael Kettermann on 2020-10-12

Hey,
I am trying to install esys on Ubuntu 20.04 from source (downloaded from bazaar).
I followed this instruction: https://answers.launchpad.net/esys-particle/+faq/1613

When I do "sh autogen.sh" I get some warnings about some files being in subdirectories, but I believe these warnings have been there in older Ubuntu versions, too. Should not be an issue.

However, when I then execute "./configure CC=mpicc CXX=mpic++" I get this warning:

WARNING: could not figure out which toolset name to use for mpic++

and ultimately this one:

configure: error: cannot find boost/python.hpp

I have python 2.7 installed as well as the libboost-all-dev.

Could someone point me to how to solve this issue? I never had this problem with previous Ubuntu versions.

Thanks and best regards,

Michael
