Problem building Python modules on boost 1.34.0

Description

When trying to build a Python module from the Tutorial quickstart from libs\python\example\quickstart , I ran "bjam --toolset=gcc release" using mingw under WindowsXP. The following error happens:

C:\Carlos\Apps\boost_1_34_0\libs\python\example\quickstart>bjam --toolset=gcc release Jamroot:17: in modules.load rule python-extension unknown in module Jamfile</C:/Carlos/Apps/boost_1_34_0/lib s/python/example/quickstart>.

module scope

The problem is in: rule python-extension unknown in module Jamfile.

After talking to some people on #boost, I changed the file:

tools/build/v2/user-config.jam

and added: using python ;

After this, the module compiles correctly.

Info from #1005 duplicate:

When trying to compile Boost Python examples I received the following errors on a Mac using toolset=darwin and on a PC using toolset=msvc-8_0.

After adding import python ; per a suggestion from Dave Abrahams I was successfully able to compile all the examples on my Mac. I will test on Tuesday to confirm that it also fixes the problems I had on a PC. I am submitting this ticket per a request from Dave.

The attached patch "fixes" the Boost.Build errors. But it still doesn't work in my case. Without a user-config.jam, and mscv-8.0, and gcc-3.4.5(mingw) I get (in that order):

And the behavior doesn't change if I enable my user-config.jam.

I also get:

even after applying the change to version.hpp, but in that case it complains about not being to open file boost_python-vc80-mt-gd-1_34_1.lib

It would help if you log in when poking Trac, since I'm going to assume you did something incorrect. The version.hpp bug fix is *only* for the CVS RC_1_34_0 version, it has nothing to do with the released 1.34.0 version. So the version.hpp fix would break the 1.34.0 archive if you apply it.

This bug is still open, I have these bugs too.

I have solved it by copying boost_python-vc80-mt-gd-1_34_1.lib to the c:\python25\libs directory (since jam calls LINKer with that path included as lib path)

It is certainly a problem and it should be fixed.

Here's one of the errors. I've also added 'using python ;' statement to the user-config.jam, otherwise it won't even compile.

Sung-Jin,

What commands did you run that you are having problems with?

I encounter such a problem too, by add 'using msvc : 8.0 ;' into user-config.jam, the problem can be resolved. Replying to Sung-Jin Hong <serialx.net@gmail.com>:

It appears Dave added the 'using python ;' to the Jamroot in revision [40714] (back in 2007), but never closed this bug. If anyone is still having this problem, please reopen it.
