Dear Salvador,

you appear to have FFTW installed under /usr/local, in a version that is incompatible with the way Espresso is built. Please uninstall that (and check if there are any other libraries in /usr/local that might conflict with Espresso) and instead install libfftw3-dev from the Ubuntu package repository.

Dear Florian

Thank you your email and quick response...
I am still having troubles with the compilation in Fedora....

But now, I am facing troubles with Ubuntu.... In this case the command
cmake ..
finished successfully but during make it complains with:

[ 50%] Linking CXX shared library
/usr/bin/ld: /usr/local/lib/libfftw3.a(assert.o): relocation R_X86_64_PC32 against symbol `stdout@@GLIBC_2.2.5' can not be used when making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC

I do not have experience compiling software with boost and cmake... Still reading ;)

Any suggestions? Any help will be greatly appreciated...

if boost is not found automatically you can tell cmake where to look for
Boost by setting BOOST_ROOT (cmake -DBOOST_ROOT=/path/to/boost ...).
The relevant cmake Documentation can be found at

Hope that helps,

Dear All,

I am experiencing troubles while compiling espresso ver 4.0

When I execute in the build directory: /PATH/espresso-4.0.0/Build
cmake ..
It complains with
The following REQUIRED packages have not been found:
* Boost (required version >= 1.53.0)

I am using FEdora 27 and rightnow i have two versions of boost. 
One installed with package manager and another from source...

But I do know how to compile properly with cmake...

Any suggestion would be appreciated...

Thanks  a lot... Regards
