Boost libraries on Android



  • Hello,

    I am trying to use boost with my qt app which runs on android as well. I am having troubles including the boost libs for android. I downloaded the boost libs for android from below location.
    https://github.com/emileb/Boost-for-Android-Prebuilt
    I am using the following lines in .pro file to include the boost libs

    if (android)
    {
    INCLUDEPATH += $$PWD/../pathToBoostHeaders
    equals(ANDROID_TARGET_ARCH, armeabi-v7a){
    LIBS += -L$$PWD/../pathToBoostLibs
    libboost_atomic-gcc-mt-1_53.a
    }
    }

    But complains that it cannot find libboost_atomic-gcc-mt-1_53.a. Can you please suggest what might be wrong & how to include boost libs for android into my qt app.. Thanks in advance.

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    From the looks of it, your LIBS line has an error, it should rather be -lboost_atomic-gcc-mt-1_53
