I'm having troubles installing mzR. I'm using R 3.4.3 on Ubuntu 16.04. When I do


the installation quits with this error message:

/usr/lib/R/etc/Makeconf:168: recipe for target 'boost/thread/src/pthread/thread.o' failed
make: *** [boost/thread/src/pthread/thread.o] Error 1
ERROR: compilation failed for package ‘mzR’

Any ideas on how to fix this are most welcome.

It could be related to the gcc version - I vaguely remember issues with more recent versions of ubuntu and gcc, but I don't think it was related to pthread/thread.o. What version of gcc do you have?
