Install wpantund singals2 from boost missing

    I can't cross-compile wpantund

    Ubuntu LTS 16.04

    git clone git://
    git clone git://
    cp -R packages/libs source/package
    cp -R packages/utils/dbus source/package/utils
    cd source
    make menuconfig

    add utils -> dbus + dbus-utils and libs -> boost -> singals

    make #~30min-1h
    cd ../
    git clone git://
    cd wpantund
    sudo apt-get install dbus gcc g++ libdbus-1-dev libboost-dev libtool autoconf autoconf-archive
    ./configure --build=mips-openwrt-linux-gnu --host=mipsel-openwrt-linux-uclibc
    sh -buildroot {"full path to source"}/source/ -lib boost

    This will throw exception:

    In file included from DBUSIPCServer.cpp:32:0:
    DBUSIPCServer.h:29:37: fatal error: boost/signals2/signal.hpp: No such file or directory
    compilation terminated.

    it can't find the boost lib altough it's in source/staging_dir/target-mipsel_24kc_musl-1.1.16/usr/include/boost/
    I'm sure, I missed something but what?
    Thanks for help.

  • The part with changing the Boost Makefile is bullshit.
    Singnals2 is inside Signals.
    I tried doing the right configuration already in the configure part. but didn't succeed.

    make clean
    cd ../wpantund
    export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=$PKG_CONFIG_PATH:/home/fabian/test/source//staging_dir/target-mipsel_24kc_musl-1.1.16/usr/lib/pkgconfig
    ./configure --host=mipsel-openwrt-linux ac_cv_search_readline=/home/fabian/test/source//staging_dir/target-mipsel_24kc_musl-1.1.16/usr/lib/ CC=/home/fabian/test/source//staging_dir/toolchain-mipsel_24kc_gcc-5.4.0_musl-1.1.16/bin/mipsel-openwrt-linux-gcc CXX=/home/fabian/test/source//staging_dir/toolchain-mipsel_24kc_gcc-5.4.0_musl-1.1.16/bin/mipsel-openwrt-linux-g++ CCLD=/home/fabian/test/source//staging_dir/toolchain-mipsel_24kc_gcc-5.4.0_musl-1.1.16/bin/mipsel-openwrt-linux-ld CXXLD=/home/fabian/test/source//staging_dir/toolchain-mipsel_24kc_gcc-5.4.0_musl-1.1.16/bin/mipsel-openwrt-linux-ld CFLAGS="$(pkg-config dbus-1 --cflags)"

    this time doesn't finde the dbus lib
    wich is in /home/fabian/test/source//staging_dir/target-mipsel_24kc_musl-1.1.16/usr/lib/dbus-1.0/include/

    In file included from wpanctl.c:47:0:
    /usr/include/dbus-1.0/dbus/dbus.h:29:33: fatal error: dbus/dbus-arch-deps.h: No such file or directory
    compilation terminated.

    The package config path is defined to /home/fabian/test/source//staging_dir/target-mipsel_24kc_musl-1.1.16/usr/lib/pkgconfig
    there is a dbus-1.pc file

    pkg-config --cflags dbus-1
    -I/usr/include/dbus-1.0 -I/usr/lib/dbus-1.0/include

    it gives me the dir to the dbus lib where the dbus-arch-deps.h file is
    why can't dbus.h include find this file?
    any suggestions?
