Dear Kyeong Su Shin, dear Muhammad,

that's exactly my fear: UHD relies heavily on Boost, but the Boost in
Ubuntu 10.04 is significantly too old to still work. While it
technically is possible, trying to set up a prefix with a newer version
of boost etc is definitely a lot harder than updating your Ubuntu!

Best regards,
