Bug Description

ember got in Build-Depends libboost-thread-dev (1.53) and libogre-dev which depends on boost 1.49. It causes Build-Depends conflict.

This should be resolved by Debian bug #704786, which is pending on the resolution of packaging problems in the ember stack.

You're right. Maintainer of ember should to upgrade the package to new upstream version and bump depends on ogra-1.8. For saucy, I'd like to upload a workaround.

I've tried to update ogre to 1.8.1 with boost1.5x support, but that didn't work out (ember still fails to build from source).
It's ok for us to ship multiple boost versions in universe for saucy. Can we simply live with this FTBFS and wait for OGRE/boost transition to happen in Debian & revisit this bug for T?

Well, there are 2 possibilities ways to fix this one:

1) You just upload my debdiff with small changes and it fixes FTBFS -> builds fine with boost 1.49.

2) Leave this one and we are waiting to get them fixed in Debian. Our FTBFS concerns to rebuild, so there will be no difference for users.

I'm leaving decision for you as you're a sponsor. Otherwise please unsubscribe ubuntu-sponsors.

I see what you mean now, ember needs whichever boost-thread is used by
ogre and not just any/default boost-thread.
I'll upload your patch. I misunderstood your patch initially.
