Why is it so hard to install ros on Gentoo? After 2 days and nearly there just as you are.

This package can be installed with:

$roslocate info move_base_msgs
- git:
    local-name: move_base_msgs
    uri:
    version: groovy-devel

$roslocate info move_base_msgs | wstool merge -
$wstool update

I think it may ask for more dependencies later on. Also we should write the process of installation we followed somewhere because there is an incredible lack of information.

After I add this package it asks for more things:

Failed to invoke /opt/ros/groovy/bin/rospack deps-manifests base_local_planner
  [rospack] Error: package/stack 'costmap_2d' depends on non-existent package 'pcl_ros' and rosdep claims that it is not a system dependency. Check the ROS_PACKAGE_PATH or try calling 'rosdep update'

I don't know if I should follow the same procedure with this one. I know pcl is big.
