Raspberry Pi 2B and Indigo

Are there any working instructions for installing Indigo on the new Raspberry Pi 2B (Armv7) and the latest Raspbian image? I tried following the instructions for Raspbian in the wiki but there were problems.

First there was a conflict with python-setuptools. If the package was taken from ros repo it did not work. It tried to use python files in /usr/local... but these files were not there.

The the instructions say to install "wget . But will this deb work for the new board?

I got ros base install to build following the instructions here

the python tools didn't work first time, sorry cant remember what I did that fixed it - I think installing python-dev and just doing it over again fixed it, but trying to build for turtlebot kobuki ftdi failed with

That was the instructions I tried. I cannot get liblz4-dev installed so I am stuck there.

The link was in my email notification:

What line fails for you, and what is the error message

installing libftdi-dev fixed my error

I seemed to have gotten the wrong libz4 deb. Getting the right one solved the deb install problem. Now it compiles better... I wonder how I got the wrong version of the file.

And the compilation for ros-comm succeeded.

I moved onto the linaro image here and got base comm and turtlebot + turtlebot_navigation to build. Have been able to keyop turtlebot and fired up gmapping. depth camera appears to work, not RGB camera at the moment.

@TommyP, I'm getting the same error RE: libl4z-dev. Can you share a bit more about which version you had and which version you switched to? Did you do anything differently, or just try again?

I think I just tried again with installing it and suddenly it worked. I might have tried to install lib4z-dev from package also.

If you can start with an Ubuntu Trusty image you should be able to follow the standard Ubuntu Armhf instructions.
