Hi Fung Yang,
in the playerMakeLog it can be seen that -lboost_system flag is presented, so they are found.

Just now, I'm trying to compile player (svn version) in a new machine and I'm having a similar issue as you.
I also get the error

 undefined reference to symbol '_ZN5boost6system15system_categoryEv'

and it seems that this error is due the version of cmake and libboost.
I have cmake version 2.8.11 and libboost 1.54, and I solve this adding -lboost_system to CMAKE_EXE_LINKER_FLAGS.

Which versions of player source, cmake and libboost are you using?

Hi Gonzalo Fernando Perez Paina,

Thank you very much for your advice.
But it still not working.

I tried to use ccmake, pressed ‘t’ for advanced mode
and edited two variables:
CMAKE_CXX_FLAGS   -lboost_system
CMAKE_EXE_LINKER_FLAG   -boost_system

Configure, generate,

$make   VERBOSE=1 > playerMakeLog

The output I got is
(1)playerMakeLog  uploaded with this post.
(2)playerMakeTerminalLog also uploaded with this post.

Your advice is very much appreciated.

Many thanks,
Fung Yang
