Incomplete packages for kinetic armhf jessie
I wanted to install ROS kinetic on by beaglebone black. The image I have installed is a debian jessie, which is the recommended image to handle all of the beaglebone black features. And I just saw that currently almost nothing is compiled for kinetic jessie armhf, while all packages are available for the kinetic ubuntu xenial armhf. I used to have the ubuntu xenial on my beaglebone and ros was nicely working, unfortunately to have the easiest access to internal feature of the beaglebones (PRUs), the debian jessie is the image best maintained, so I switched to this image. but now I am kind of stuck as almost no package are available for this version.
is this a temporary limitation, and I just need to wait that packages are compiled and provided for my combination, or is this kind of a mid-long term limitation and I should look into another solution for my setup ?
