Hello everyone! I'm trying to build Jade from source, and I have run into a problem, likely python related. It builds several packages successfully, then fails at python_orocos_kdl:

<== Finished processing package [37 of 223]: 'pr2_description'

==> Processing plain cmake package: 'python_orocos_kdl'

Reproduce this error by running:
==> cd /home/allenh1/catkin_ws/build_isolated/python_orocos_kdl && /opt/ros/jade/ make -j8 -l8

Command failed, exiting.

I am building with the following command.

$ sudo PYTHONPATH="/opt/ros/jade/lib64/python3.3/site-packages/" ./src/catkin/bin/catkin_make_isolated --install --install-space /opt/ros/jade -DSETUPTOOLS_DEB_LAYOUT=OFF

No packages can build, for some reason, unless I explicitly add the PYTHONPATH variable as seen above. Any suggestions as to how I can get this working?

Thanks in advance.

Update: I have roscore up and running!

I was even able to build something I wrote in Qt for controlling a robot.

But I cannot do anything else until I get the rest to build... I'm creating a Gentoo install guide for Jade.

I have an answer! The issue falls from the adaptation of Python3. Running the following worked to fix this.

$ cd ~/ros_catkin_ws/orocos_kinematics_dynamics/python_orocos_kdl/PyKDL
$ rm -f ./std_string.sip
$ wget

This allows several more things to build. Now up to 117/223 building for desktop_full on Gentoo..

I was so excited that I found this answer! But unfortunately it doesn't help in my situation as the orocos_kinematics_dynamics folder does not exist :( osx 10.11.1

Hey! Sorry - been a little busy lately. What is your specific issue on OS X?

That was long enough ago that the details are fuzzy. My biggest issue is that I'm running El Capitan (OS X 10.11). I have ubuntu on a separate machine so that may be my best bet. I'm excited for you that you have this working though!

This issue got resolved by installing sip for python 2.7:
