Installing Boost library for GPU Worker

Hey, I am planning on installing GPU Worker to harness multiple cards in my desktop for CUDA programming. I know I need to get ahold of the Boost Library. Just wondering, how much work is setting boost up? Does anyone know of any good tutorials for installing boost on Ubuntu? I’m using Ubuntu 8.04 currently. Thanks!

The most painless way to install anything in linux is to use your distribution’s package manager. That would be apt-get in ubuntu. Unfortunately, they split boost into a dozen packages. See http://beans.seartipy.com/2006/03/15/insta…d-debianubuntu/ for a command line you can copy and paste.

Thanks!
