I tried to release a ROS Indigo version of a package, but I got an email back saying that "the build failed in Jenkins". This seems to be the error:

Could not find a package configuration file provided by "Eigen" with any of
  the following names:


However, the package's package.xml has both a build and a run dependency on cmake_modules, and the CMakeLists file contains:

find_package(catkin REQUIRED COMPONENTS cmake_modules [...])

find_package(Eigen REQUIRED)


According to the answer below, I've updated the CMakeLists.txt :

However, Jenkins is still failing with the same error message as before.

Try the following please:

find_package(catkin REQUIRED cmake_modules )
find_package(Eigen REQUIRED)

where cmake_modules is not a component

Maybe a stupid question: did you install Eigen on your board?

Interesting. I have another project that was released successfully in ROS Indigo which uses catkin REQUIRED COMPONENTS cmake_modules ...

Fixed now?

I fixed it in the CMakeLists file. I only know whether it helped when I get the next email from Jenkins.

Do I have to make a new release? I pushed the changes onto the repository's branch, but they don't seem to be in Jenkins build from last night ...

Actually, to be more precise: is it possible to see what code is trying to be compiled in Jenkins?
