Hey guys,

It seems as native_file_string() has been replaced in the latest version of boost with string(). could someone please check this out and let me know how to proceed ? With the following patch the latest git version compiles with boost 1.46.

Here's a patch Cheesy

Code:
diff -rupN bitcoin-orig//src/ui.cpp bitcoin//src/ui.cpp
--- bitcoin-orig//src/ui.cpp 2011-07-28 16:40:27.650383395 +0000
+++ bitcoin//src/ui.cpp 2011-07-28 16:45:07.596883583 +0000
@@ -1807,7 +1807,7 @@ void SetStartOnSystemStartup(bool fAutoS
 {
     if (!fAutoStart)
     {
-        unlink(GetAutostartFilePath().native_file_string().c_str());
+        unlink(GetAutostartFilePath().string().c_str());
     }
     else
     {

EDIT:

Just tested and everything seems to work fine Cheesy

Looks like the new name for native_file_string() is file_string(). 

Found more info here:
http://www.boost.org/doc/libs/1_47_0/libs/filesystem/v2/doc/index.htm

They say boost supports both V2 and V3 during this transition period, and V3 is the default starting in 1.46.

I did read that too but didn't compile. then I read that it has changed again apparently ? When I changed to just string it compiled fine and worked like a charm.

Oh interesting.

A little more digging and I found this:
http://www.boost.org/doc/libs/1_47_0/libs/filesystem/v3/doc/reference.html#path-deprecated-functions

I guess you probably found it also but posting here since it takes some searching to find it.

Not sure what the difference is between native_string() and string().  I'm unfamiliar with the documentation structure and I got lost trying to find the specifics on those functions.  But it does seem like string() is the one they want you to use.

I don;t know who I would speak to about getting this fixed in the git version ? or weather the have left it like that for backward compatibility ?
