@pat-s, Thanks for the heads up. I updated the package last night with that fix (as well as rstudio-server-git).

@dviktor, because pandoc is part of their official build process (as far as I know), I include it. There's not really an incentive to move pandoc to optdepends. It may not be needed at runtime, but I try to stick as close to the upstream build process as we can. Perhaps other maintainers feel differently.

As for the versions, I updated some of the versions, but others are not necessarily worth updating. E.g., they tend to lag behind boost releases by a fair amount, and new boost versions often break the build. Is there a particular reason you want to specify version minimums?

Mathjax dep needs to be fixed after the Mathjax v3.0 update. Maybe depending on mathjax2 from community does it for now. Probably rstudio does not yet work with the v3.0?

Just rechecked dependencies on GitHub. They states that the following list should be satisfied:


Also it seems like pandoc is optional dependency and needed only for RMarkdown support so you can move it to optdepends

I see

Fixed issued wth boost. @hwkiller you are have access to push commits to this package.

hwkiller commented on 2019-08-07 22:07

Yet another update: This has been fixed.

But -DRSTUDIO_USE_SYSTEM_BOOST=yes should be added to the cmake call.

hwkiller commented on 2019-08-07 20:24

Just an update; I made a comment about this on github. They did not intend to force a bundled boost. There will be a PR soon remedying this situation, after which point the patch will be unnecessary. May need to specify an option though to declare whether or not to use system or rstudio-tools boost.

This might not compile soon. The current git revision has a cmake setting that disallows cmake from searching for system-installed boost; their plan seems to be to provide a self-contained boost version.

I had to patch this check out in rstudio-server-git; if necessary, we could take the same patch over here too.

There may be another way of disabling the local-boost-only setting, but I could not find one.

Confirmed: This does not compile as of 8/7/2019. If you grab the patch from rstudio-server-git (boost-system.patch), include it into this source array, and add patch -p1 < ${srcdir}/boost-system.patch, it works.
