Thanks for reporting this. The package should build without needing boost to be installed now.

Had to install boost to get the package to build. Otherwise, it failed with "b2: command not found"

I've updated the package to statically link with boost. It should be working now.

I managed to get vpython to statically link with boost. You will need to put setup2.patch in the same directory as your PKGBUILD and you will need to patch your PKGBUILD.

This is really annoying. I suggest we statically link boost with vpython, so that we don't have to patch and rebuild everytime boost updates.

I encountered an error while building

fatal error: boost/python/numeric.hpp: No such file or directory
#include <boost/python/numeric.hpp>

After some googling I found that since boost 1.65.0
"The boost::python::numeric API has been removed, as it is being obsoleted by boost::python::numpy."

If I run a simple test using spyder (from visual import * \ sphere()) the render window is just empty/blank (no rendering takes place at all).

Found out that "vidle" is the way to go, but there is no executable called "vidle" after installing this package.

Using the following script everything works just fine:

python2 /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/vidle/

Is it normal that I can use vpython only through vidle?

Seems 6.11 came out. Have to check it out.

@giniu - works now, thanks a lot!

@felixonmars - can you test current version?
