I am compiling under WSL Ubuntu 20.04. I have an includes directory that has my local includes. I have recently added boost for logging and it is in another directory, at the same level and down one. If I put a symbolic link to a local directory in includes which points to the directory where my boost includes are, it doesn’t work. If I do an ls of the file the the system is looking for from within the includes directory, it is found just fine. I can even seen the file using VSC Explorer, with no problem. If I copy that directory directly into my includes directory, it builds just fine.
If I have my boost directory as a subfolder somewhere in by project directory, that also works if I put the -IBoost/boost_1_82_0 in the CCFLAGS .
So my includes directory is added in the CCFLAGS declaration, like this: CCFLAGS += -Iincludes/
And in my h file, I have
Which works if the folder is actually in includes, but not if boost is connected by a symbolic link. This seems to be an issue with the compiler, aarch64-linux-gnu-g+±9. It says it’s an 64 bit ELF executable. But it won’t traverse the symbolic link for some reason.
Any help would be appreciated.
