Robot state publisher has died error code -7

Hi, recently I upgraded my ODROID XU3 using apt-get and since then I haven't been able to launch robot state publisher which is crucial for my finals project. Whenever I want to launch my launch file, it always died with error code -7 and when I use rosrun for robot state publisher it returned 'Bus error' to the terminal.

  1. Is there a quick solution to this?
  2. If not, is there an alternative to robot state publisher? I intend to use my robot for gmapping, and I haven't been able to run robot state publisher in a separate machine like my laptop and connect to the ODROID that contains the gmapping, freenect, and differential drive package. It ended up with no mapping data received and the robot model has plenty of errors.
  3. Is there an old ROS repository that I can download and replace the one in my ODROID?

Really need help real quick, it was stupid of me to update when I had the whole thing worked out, now I'm screwed.

See this question:

The most straightforward solution that is proposed is checking out and building the robot_model stack from source.

This worked for me on an aarch64 board— I built both robot_model and robot_state_publisher from source and it cooperated.

My error code was -11, but after I followed shadow repository and update, everything goes fine
