error during installation?

edited April 2016
I'm trying to install genesis (v 5.1) but am consistently getting an error (copied in below), whether using gcc/g++ 4.8, 4.9 or 5.
I wonder whether it's got to do with the standard not being C++11 by default, or whether this is a completely separate issue. Please advise?

  • Hi Carlijn,

    that was an unfortunate combination of g++ and Boost Python which is not (yet) covered in the automated tests. I resolved it now. Please get the updated genesis v0.6.0 ( and let me know whether it works now.

    Sorry for the inconvenience, all the best
  • Many thanks for solving this so quickly, Lucas!
    It seems to build to 100% now.

    Best wishes,
