Vtk package issue

Currently the boost version is:
And in the file: /usr/lib/cmake/vtk/VTK-vtk-module-find-packages.cmake
we find this line:


For some reason this seem to result in build errors for some libraries, for example pcl (GitHub - PointCloudLibrary/pcl: Point Cloud Library (PCL)). It links against boost-1.80 and fails since 1.79 is expected. I think the issue is that since pcl depends on both boost and vtk we get a conflict with the system version and the vtk find_package. It might very well be a pcl issue, but looking at the Arch package (Arch Linux - vtk 9.1.0-21 (x86_64)), the version for boost is indeed 1.80 under find_package.

Edit (build log):

-- Could NOT find Boost: Found unsuitable version "1.80.0", but required is exact version "1.79.0" (found /usr/include, )
-- Could not find the VTK package due to a missing dependency: Boost
CMake Error at /usr/lib64/cmake/Boost-1.80.0/BoostConfig.cmake:141 (find_package):
  Found package configuration file:


  but it set boost_iostreams_FOUND to FALSE so package "boost_iostreams" is
  considered to be NOT FOUND.  Reason given by package:

  No suitable build variant has been found.

  The following variants have been tried and rejected:

  * libboost_iostreams.so.1.80.0 (release runtime,

  * libboost_iostreams.a (static, Boost_USE_STATIC_LIBS=OFF)

Not on my end


Is your system fully updated and rebooted?

I had the same issue on two computers. I think i did a system upgrade and a reboot, but apparently not since I too now have boost-1.80 for the find package.
I apologize for jumping to conclusions.

Is there a similar webpage as Arch Linux - Package Search for manjaro, or is it the exact same? (Software Center doesn’t seem to list things like boost or vtk).
Reason is that then I could sanity check the version/files to that on my system.
Anyway, it seems that everything is all well now. Thank you very much.


Yes there is https://packages.manjaro.org/
