Could someone please provide a ROS-ready raspberry pi filesystem?

I've spent countless days trying to get ROS installed in my raspberry pi (running raspbian) so I could use it as an embedded system, and after so many dependency problems and manual system links, I sort of gave up. There is a VM with ROS-indigo readily available for download, so couldn't someone provide a copy-paste filesystem for raspberry pi with ROS installed?

Which ROS distro are you looking to use? I have hydro running on my pi, and I suppose I could create an image from it.

That sounds great! Would you please?

I'll post an answer here with a link once I create the image, but that might not be until next week.

Dan did you get a chance to create that image? or if you have the instruction on how to build ROS on a raspberry PI would really appreciate it thanks

I don't think I'm going to have a chance to get an image put together anytime soon, but I can definitely get you a rosinstall file along with some instructions.

Here is a rosinstall file I created from the install on my pi. I was essentially able to follow the hydro instructions.

Note that rosdep will complain about not being able to install python-rospkg, python-catkin-pkg, sbcl, and python-rosdep. Other than sbcl, which the instructions tell you how to deal with, the rest are installed with pip instead of apt.

You will also see

image_geometry: No definition of [opencv2] for OS [debian]
cv_bridge: No definition of [opencv2] for OS [debian]

Install opencv with apt-get install libopencv-dev

To silence the errors, add --skip-keys "python-rospkg python-catkin-pkg python-rosdep opencv2" to the rosdep call.

If you have any trouble, post a comment and I'll try to help.

Here is a script I used to install indigo on a few pis which is more or less the instructions stated above.

To add another answer, on this article, there is a link to download an image of a raspberry with hydro on it.

I explain the procedure and all that was installed on it so you know what you are getting. But you should be good to go as it has openCV, openNI2 and the robot variant.
