I would like to try OpenRAVE together with ROS (Electric), but there is problem with installation.

When "rosdep install openrave_robot_control orrosplanning openrave_sensors" is executed, i get this error:

Execution failed with OSError: [Errno 8] Exec format error
rosdep install ERROR:
failed to install collada-dom

But collada-dom (libcollada15dom-dev) is installed in my system (Ubuntu 11.04, x86_64).

When I try rosmake (instead of rosdep install...) it compiles for long time with some warnings. But after successful compilation, I can't run any demo... For example "roslaunch openrave_robot_control schunkarm_sim.launch" gives me this error:

ERROR: cannot launch node of type
[openrave_robot_control/simulationserver]: Cannot locate node of type
[simulationserver] in package [openrave_robot_control]

Is there any solution? Thanks a lot.

actually, openrave_robot_control does not compile with the latest ros electric. we're working hard to update it, but some things in ros core changed making it very difficult...

there is some advancement (rev 2174), but now compilation fails with

[ rosmake ] Halting due to failure in package openrave_robot_control.

I uploaded logfile here.
