I am having some issues running eosio_build.sh on Ubuntu 16.04 which is running on Windows 10 through the linux subsystem. It installs all the dependencies but stalls when installing the boost libraries and doesn't continue to build. Here is a screenshot of the terminal.
You will probably be better off installing boot manually. That is what I had to do https://www.boost.org/:
Install the required packages
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install build-essential g++ python-dev autotools-dev libicu-dev build-essential libbz2-dev
Install the Boost libraries
wget -O boost.tar.gz https://dl.bintray.com/boostorg/release/1.67.0/source/boost_1_67_0.tar.gz tar xzvf boost.tar.gz cd boost_1_67_0
Boost bootstrap setup:
Then build it with:
sudo ./b2 install
Used Thomas5577's instructions but created an
opt directory in
/usr/ and then a
boost directory within
opt. Then I installed the
boost library, but I changed the bootstrap setup command to
./bootstrap.sh --prefix=/usr/opt/boost, and the eosio build worked.
