Build error on cross compiling for QNX 6.6.0 x86

Version: Boost 1.56.0 Severity: Problem
Keywords: Cc: hkjin81@…


Hello, I'm trying to build Boost for QNX. When cross compiling Boost 1.56 for QNX 6.6.0 x86 target, errors occured. I found similar issue( and its state is fixed in 1.56 but errors of that issue and more errors still exist. Is this issue still exist or something I did is wrong? I'm working on Ubuntu 12.04 32bit x86 with QNX 6.6.0 SDP installed and for QNX 6.6.0 x86.

QNX uses Dinkum standard libraries(libcpp). If I compile with option cxxflags=-Vgcc_ntox86_gpp for using gnu standard libraries(libstdc++) then it compiled successfully but that's not a solution for me because other libraries are provided built with QNX's default Dinkum libraries.

bootstrap and b2 log file attached.

Commands used for build:

./ --prefix=/home/user/boost-build
./b2 -j3 toolset=qcc target-os=qnx --with-system --with-atomic --with-chrono --with-timer --with-date_time --with-thread --link=static install

I think this issue is the same as which has been closed as won't fix.

According to GNU about Complex Numbers, we can safely undefine the macro I. So, I did a workaround by commenting out the macro I from the complex.h, but I would like to know if simply removing the macro from the header file is also okay.

Best regards, Anton

There is a header file patch from the QNX community site. It seems an external link is rejected. Anyway, you can google "foundry27 complex.h 4.7.2"

Best regards, Anton
