RASPBIAN JESSIE LITE - Error running 'flotilla': Solved?

I got this error when trying to run the flotilla system:

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ flotilla
flotilla: error while loading shared libraries: libboost_system.so.1.55.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I’ve found that rockpool will run fine and ask you which server to connect to - and while Google wasn’t much help I was able to install the required libboost libraries using:

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo apt-get install libboost-system1.55.0
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo ldconfig -v

Woohoo! Doesn’t seem to be many other problems, and this seems to be the most minimal way to get it going (you could go for libboost-system-dev to get it all).

I will definitely add this step to the installer. Thank you! I should have known that Lite wouldn’t include the boost libraries as standard.
