Hello,

I'm using Ubuntu 10.04.3 and the ros-electric-openni-kinect package. When I try

roslaunch openni_camera openni_node.launch

I receive

[ INFO] [1320414269.335861019]: [/openni_node1] Number devices connected: 1
[ INFO] [1320414269.337386912]: [/openni_node1] 1. device on bus 001:08 is a Xbox NUI Camera (2ae) from Microsoft (45e) with serial id 'A003619160******'
[ INFO] [1320414269.343809795]: [/openni_node1] searching for device with index = 1
[openni_node1-2] process has died [pid 1734, exit code -4].

By searching the web, I found out that the reason for this is probably that my CPU does not support SSE3 instructions. As the only solution (apart from buying a new CPU) seems to be a manual source-based installation of the openni_kinect stack, I tried to follow the advice given here, but the CMakeLists.txt does not contain the line which is mentioned there.

Can anybody confirm that the pre-compiled package (installed by sudo apt-get install ros-electric-openni-kinect) requires SSE3 support? And, if so, what would be the easiest way to obtain a build that only makes use of SSE2 instructions?

Thanks in advance!

Try building it from source yourself and turning off the SSE3 in the configuration step.

Thank you for your answer! I didn't really know what you mean by "configuration step", so I simply tried to compile it without any modification and it works :) I guess the "rosbuild_check_for_sse ()" in "CMakeLists.txt" switched off SSE3 automatically so there was no need to change any flag by hand.
