Mac install from source: Boost files not found

Post by art4206 » Wed Aug 15, 2018 1:54 am

Downloaded latest source code. Trying to install from source on macOS High Sierra 10.13.6. In the downloaded folder I run "cmake ." then "c" for configure. I get the following error:

CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:79 (MESSAGE):
--> Could not locate required Boost files - Please check
/Users/alaganowsky/Downloads/LuxCore-luxcorerender_v2.0alpha1/../macos

I have installed Boost using homebrew (brew install boost). Any advice?

There is a long thread about compiling on MacOS, here: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=58

cmake scripts for MacOS need to be updated and they may not work out of the box.
