Having just preupgraded from Fedora 15, I set about installing ROS all over again. Fortunately, unlike the previous time, I had much fewer issues getting to the point of building gazebo. I had to build assimp, and that was it.

Build first failed due to fltk issues

UPDATE 1 : This seems to be some issue with the updating of fltk as per https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=368607">this. However, looking at the x.h header from the Fl include directory, and comparing, I tried this (Sensible) patch. In ros/simulator_gazebo/gazebo/build/gazebo/server/rendering/OgreCreator.cc

-- win = OgreCreator::CreateWindow( fl_display, fl_visual->screen, 
        (int32_t)(Fl_X::i(flWindow)->xid), width, height);
++ win = OgreCreator::CreateWindow( fl_display, fl_visual->screen, 
        (int32_t)(fl_xid(flWindow)), width, height);

This resulted in the build process continuing further, with the following error

Will sym-linking the required files to the new versions be a good thing to do? I'm trying to avoid that here.

If your install is correctly identifying `fedora`, then it should resolve to `boost-devel` (see `ros/rosdep.yaml`). Boost 1.46 is the Ubuntu Oneiric version, so maybe the OS identification has gone wrong somehow.

My install does definitely identify as 'fedora'. Could the fact that I have preupgraded be an issue? I don't remember what version of Boost I had on 15, but it could very well be 1.46 :S

I don't know enough rosdep internals to answer that. Probably, this is a bug and you should open a ticket to get it fixed: https://code.ros.org/trac/ros/newticket

I have gazebo running happily on my Fedora 16 system. Check here for SVN version information:

http://answers.ros.org/question/12981/pcl-failing-compilation-fedora-16-segmentation

Also, I'm using boost-1.47 - so make sure you do a make clean when building gazeob, as the linking might still refer to boost libraries of your previous Fedora installation.
