Boost logger linking issue

I am writing a program which uses Boost libraries. I had no problems with linking and using program options but I can't seem to make boost log working correctly.
Could anyone tell me what am I missing?

jamroot.jam

using clang : : : <compileflags>-Isrc/main/headers <compileflags>-std=c++11 <compileflags>-stdlib=libc++ <linkflags>-std=c++11 <linkflags>-stdlib=libc++ ;
lib boost_program_options boost_log ;
exe foghorn : [ glob src/main/cpp/*.cpp ] boost_program_options boost_log ;


This is the error I am getting:

Answer

I had the same issue and in my case the problem was that I had boost compiled with dynamic libs only, and forgot to define BOOST_ALL_DYN_LINK.

http://www.boost.org/doc/libs/1_54_0/libs/log/doc/html/log/rationale/namespace_mangling.html

As a test, try to compile

http://www.boost.org/doc/libs/1_54_0/libs/log/example/doc/tutorial_fmt_stream.cpp

(#include <boost/log/support/date_time.hpp> should be added, the example is broken.)

and also add #define BOOST_LOG_DYN_LINK

I could compile the example with g++ tutorial_fmt_stream.cpp -Wall -L$BOOST/lib/ -I $BOOST/include/ -pthread -lboost_system -lboost_log_setup -lboost_log -lboost_date_time -lboost_thread -lrt -lboost_filesystem
