Description Hedayat Vatankhah 2020-10-30 01:00:48 UTC
Description of problem:
Apparently, the boost package in Fedora is compiled without lzma support in its iostreams library. While the /boost/iostreams/filter/lzma.hpp  header is installed, the libboost_iostreams library is compiled without lzma support, so you'll get undefined reference errors when you try to use lzma filters. Please add support for them too.

Comment 1 Jonathan Wakely 2020-10-30 14:28:20 UTC
An update for rawhide is building now.

The boost-iostreams package now Requires: xz, but I didn't not make boost-devel require xz-devel. It seems reasonable to expect that users install the xz-devel package if they want to use those features. But if they don't want to use them, there is no need to install xz-devel. The rest of the Boost headers work fine without the xz headers.

Comment 2 Jonathan Wakely 2020-10-30 21:33:29 UTC
There's now an update for Fedora 33:

Soon you'll be able to install it and test it with:

  dnf --enablerepo=updates-testing update boost-iostreams

Please leave feedback at the URL above if it works for you.
