Could not compile nheqminer - could not find package for the libboost-all-dev


I am trying to build nheqminer based on

Here is the error

CMake Error at /usr/lib64/boost/Boost-relwithdebinfo.cmake:1499 (MESSAGE):
The imported target "boost_date_time-static-debug" references the file


but this file does not exist. Possible reasons include:

  • The installation package was faulty and contained


And YES the file 'libboost_date_time**-d**.a' does not exist but the "release" version 'libboost_date_time.a' is there so I have tried to edit CMakeCache.txt for forcing the RELEASE build :

//Choose the type of build, options are: None(CMAKE_CXX_FLAGS or
// CMAKE_C_FLAGS used) Debug Release RelWithDebInfo MinSizeRel.

Whatever I try the code always goes for DEBUG and requires the missing file..

So I have been looking for the repository that has the full libboost package, that should include the 'libboost_date_time-d.a'

I am stll pretty new, so I have checked the doc to add repo with yum-config-manager, despite having found site with the package adding the URL fails.


sudo yum install libboost*

The code is fetching
and it fails because the site has not such file - I have tested with a browser.

Basically, I would like to:
1. compile in release mode so it passes (hopefully) with libboost_date_time.a
2. install the libboost_date_time-d.a with the correct package.

Many thanks in advance
Best regards,


Part of the problem is that this software has not been updated in 6+ months, I would look for another source/solution.
