Program linssid installed from package linssid 3.6-7 depends on an outdated boost library. After installation when I try to run linssid I get error message: "linssid: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory". Linssid depends on package boost-libs that is currently on version 1.76.0-1 and provides library "".

Fixing this problem will probably require only recompiling linssid package.

Additional info:
Output of "pacman -Q linssid boost-libs":
linssid 3.6-7
boost-libs 1.76.0-1

Steps to reproduce:
Download package linssid 3.6-7 and try to run /usr/bin/linssid.

This is my first bug report. If I made something wrong or should have flagged package outdated and not submit bug please let me know so I don't make this mistakes in the future. I will be happy to provide more detailed information if needed, but frankly I think I have said every thing that could be said. It just needs recompiling.
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Not a bug
Additional comments about closing:  You seem to have an old version of linssid installed. If you update it, it should be fine. :)

I can confirm, after I downloaded and compiled source code myself, that this bug only requires recompiling linssid package.

linssid 3.6-7 is out of date. The current version at is 3.6-9, it's already been rebuilt for boost (and now no longer links to a shared library, since boost_regex is header-only now).

EDIT: the mirror is syncing improperly due to
