Dear Expert,

I install boost into my directy with the following linux Centos command

tar xvzf boost_1_50_0.tar.gz
cd boost_1_50_0
./bootstrap.sh --prefix=../local --libdir=../local/lib
./bjam --layout=system install
export Boost_LIBRARYDIR=../local/include/boost/
cd ..

During installation, it will echo a lot of response from the shell as follows in code area
There is a lot character of "^"  under the character b of boost.
What is that meaning ? Is it installation error mesage ?
Do I need take care of those response ?

And last question why it took almost 1hour to finish boost installation. Is it normal
installation time?

Please advise and appreciated your help

Those appear to be warnings (environment, definition) can be ignored.

Were there any errors in the compile process?

So you mean I just ignore it, don't worry about it, Right ?
a little bit uncomfortable to those long long echo response from the installation

And there is no error.

Is the installation time okay ?

Is boost working? I would say it is safe to ignore unless it is broken. However, if you are not comfortable you can the warning messages to the maintainer / developer.

What is your machine specs? (cpu, mem, vm / physical ..etc) Also post the following -

gcc -v
uname -a

How to check memory and cpu ?

By the way, the version is "unknown" for x86_64-linux-gnu that is okay ?

and x86_64-linux-gnu is C complier, RIght ?

The boost I installed is  in my other directory, for example, /home/example/ , which
is  for other application to call its library.

I think the boost installation won't affect the first  system boost which is installed
by my hosting company , Right ?

The easiest is to ask your hosting company. But you can look under /proc/meminfo and /proc/cpuinfo.

One hour is unusual, but I cannot really comment on it because I never compile boost from source. (1.41 is in repo).

I agree it is warning message since if error message it will echo out  with a word of "error" normally.

But how I can get rid of those warning after setting gcc compiler option correctly ?

Please advise and appreciated your help

The warnings refer to boost_static_assert, try reviewing namespace scopes -
