I am running Slackware current and I am trying to install ROS indigo from source following this link: http://wiki.ros.org/indigo/Installati...

As rosdep update cannot detect OS, I had to install all dependencies myself. The second answer in this post seems to list the dependencies of ROS (not sure whether the apply to indigo!) http://ros-users.122217.n3.nabble.com... . I was able to find the Slackware equivalents:

UBUNTU: python-wxgtk2.8; SLACKWARE: wxPython

UBUNTU: python-paramiko; SLACKWARE: paramiko

UBUNTU: libboost (1.4); SLACKWARE: boost (installed by default on SlackWare)

UBUNTU: pkg-config; SLACKWARE: pkg-config (installed by default on SlackWare)

UBUNTU: python-yaml; SLACKWARE: pyyaml (libyaml is already installed but this is another package!)

UBUNTU: python-gtk2; SLACKWARE: py-gtk-2 (installed by default on SlackWare)

UBUNTU: libwxgtk2.8-dev; SLACKWARE: wxGTK (seems to be included in wxPython already)

UBUNTU: python-numpy; SLACKWARE: numpy (installed by default on SlackWare)

UBUNTU: python-matplotlib; SLACKWARE: matplotlib

UBUNTU: python-epydoc; SLACKWARE: epydoc

UBUNTU: graphviz; SLACKWARE: graphviz

UBUNTU: python-imaging; SLACKWARE: python-imaging

UBUNTU: doxygen; SLACKWARE: doxygen (installed by default on SlackWare)

UBUNTU: libapr1-dev; SLACKWARE: apr-util (installed by default on SlackWare)

UBUNTU: libbz2-dev; SLACKWARE: bzip2 (installed by default on SlackWare) (not absolutely sure about this one)

UBUNTU: zlib1g-dev; SLACKWARE: zlib (installed by default on SlackWare) (not absolutely sure about this one)

UBUNTU: libaprutil1-dev; SLACKWARE: apr-util (already existing above in the list) (not absolutely sure about that)

UBUNTU: automake; SLACKWARE: automake (installed by default on SlackWare)

UBUNTU: python-dev; SLACKWARE: python? (installed by default on SlackWare) (not absolutely sure about that)

UBUNTU: pysetuptools; SLACKWARE: python-setuptools (not sure whether this is required but seems like it)

UBUNTU: liblog4cxx10-dev; SLACKWARE: log4cxx

I was not sure about the exact equivalents of libwxgtk2.8-dev, python-dev, libbz2-dev, zlib1g-dev, libaprutil1-dev.

Then I executed ./src/catkin/bin/catkin_make_isolated --install -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release. I got some errors and had to install python-empy and gtest. However, I still cannot build ROS. I am stuck at this error:

-- catkin 0.6.14
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/niko/ros_catkin_ws/build_isolated/genmsg/catkin_generated/generate_cached_setup.py", line 20, in <module>
    from catkin.environment_cache import generate_environment_script
ImportError: No module named catkin.environment_cache

  "/home/niko/ros_catkin_ws/build_isolated/genmsg/catkin_generated/generate_cached_setup.py")
  returned error code 1

I searched my filesystem for environment.cache* and these were the results:

/home/niko/ros_catkin_ws/install_isolated/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/catkin/environment_cache.py
/home/niko/ros_catkin_ws/install_isolated/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/catkin/environment_cache.pyc
/home/niko/ros_catkin_ws/src/catkin/python/catkin/environment_cache.py
/home/niko/ros_catkin_ws/src/catkin/python/catkin/environment_cache.pyc
/home/niko/ros_catkin_ws/build_isolated/catkin/lib/catkin/environment_cache.py

I added the directories to my PYTHONPATH but still no success. I also tried building jade turtle from source but the result was the same. Any ideas how to fix this?
