Hi all,

I'm working on a project for UDOO based robot and I would like to take advantages of ROS features.

I followed the tutorial on for UDOO.

When I have to choose which package install I choose ros-hydro-ros since I want a minimal installation (other packages will be installed when needed).

I was surprised when list the content of /opt/ros/hydro/bin since roscore is not there!

So my question is: which package contains roscore? More general: which packages are need to run ros and develop basic packages (only message publish and receiver)?

Thanks for support Alessandro

So my question is: which package contains roscore?

$ source /opt/ros/hydro/setup.bash
$ dpkg -S `which roscore`
ros-hydro-roslaunch: /opt/ros/hydro/bin/roscore

At least, on Ubuntu Precise, x86.

But I'm surprised that ros-hydro-ros does not include that.
