Download a package with rosmake

asked 2011-12-26 09:01:57 -0500


I created a stack which includes one teleop package. this package uses the library Qt and depends on the stack eros to build it. In the current state, before building my package, I need to install the eros stack by following the installation instruction:

I included the necessary eros_build package as a depend in my manifest.xml, but that doesn't download and install this package or even the eros stack.

My question would be, is there a way to automatize the download of the eros stack while executing rosmake in my package, if the stack wasn't found?

Thank you for your help.

rosmake is not designed to download and build packages. It only does the building part.

I suggest that you look at using rosinstall to install your packages.

Thanks for your help, I looked into that and it is very easy to use.
