View Full Version : [ubuntu] E: Couldn't find package libboost-all

February 20th, 2011, 06:02 PM
Hey, I'm kind of a Linux noob, and I'm trying to install a little program on my rootserver, but it requires libboost and libboost-dev. Unfortunately ubuntu can't seem to find the packages and google does not help either. The only info I found was telling me to install "gnuradio" or something, which takes up 138 mb. So, how can I install these packages now?

also: I cancelled the installation of gnuradio via "CTRL+C", will this cause any problems? Are there some trash files left on the system now?

PS: using putty

libboost-all-dev is in the universe repository. Have you run sudo apt-get update lately?
