Libboost-python version

Postby ncrouch141 » Thu May 25, 2017 1:53 am

I'm trying to install Vega Strike on Linux Mint using the Ubuntu repo and I keep getting an error saying it needs an older version of Libboost-python. The current version is 1.58.0 and it wants 1.49.0 or earlier. I'm afraid enabling back ports is going to make my system unstable.
