dear all I`ve been intalled this stuff for servral days. In the tutorial 4.3 Building the catkin Workspace

If you are on Raspberry Pi 2 and are looking to install rviz, catkin_make_isolated will fail at the rviz step. To build it successfully, use .../ros_catkin_ws/build_isolated/rviz/make -j2

what does "..." means? how should i solve this issue? I use Raspberry Pi 2^^ thanks a lot!

That doesn't seem to be anything other than the workspace directory you created in the step 4.1.

That command was incorrectly added to that tutorial. It was referencing the Raspberry Pi 2 where that tutorial is for the original Raspberry Pi. And the ... is invalid. I've reverted that change.
