I am trying to install ROS on OS X El Capitan and during installing of ardrone_autonomy it gives this error

No definition of [libiw-dev] for OS [osx]

Is there any workaround this problem?

libiw is a linux-specific wireless configuration library.

I have the same problem. What should I do if I do not want to switch to linux computer?

It looks like libiw is only a dependency of ardronelib, and it might be optional. Try building without it?

@fdsa1860 I was not able to install ROS on OSX El-Capitan, so i switched to Linux on VM.
