I would first try to remove all libboost_*.so files from the
diffpy_cmi-1.0-py2.7-linux-x86_64/lib directory as they came from
the binary distribution and are not compatible with your boost version.
The "./install --build=6,7,8" should then link to your boost library
instead. Note that the build command applies also for the pyobjcryst
and libdiffpy packages as they also use the shared boost libraries.
If this proves troublesome, an easier option is to get the
and build everything from scratch. I would also recommend
to get the latest updates as:
