Physics_ODE Install

Hello all, I have recently discovered that ROS has a patched ode engine. Installing electric ROS full, revealed the patched opende engine (with the parrallel_step) library. First I wanted to thank the programmers for this awesome patch.

I am interested in using this package outside of ROS, and it seems that the libraries are very similar if not the same as the ode packages. Also from the documentation page, I garner that the library can be used apart from ROS. My goal is to use this ode engine with OpenRAVE in the OpenRAVE environment (I know there is a way to use OpenRAVE in ROS, but I am still learning about that.) So my question:

I have linked the includes, and the ode-config bin to my /usr. (I also rebuilt the library because the ode-config bin gave out wrong --cflags and --libs). Does anyone know if this is enough? Does anyone have experience with what I am attempting? Thank you so much!

That's the right sort of approach. You could also consider installing the library so your paths end up cleaner. All the source for how it is compiled is in the physics_ode stack source
