I am installing Indigo on a Raspberry Pi 2 B running Rasbian Jessie. I am using the instructions at:

I am trying to run the command

sudo ./src/catkin/bin/catkin_make_isolated --install -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release --install-space /opt/ros/indigo

I am getting the following error.

Reproduce this error by running:
==> cd /home/pi/ros_catkin_ws/build_isolated/cv_bridge && /opt/ros/indigo/ make -j4 -l4

Command failed, exiting.

I have tried searching this and other sites and have not found a similar problem reported. The closest problem I found referenced changing the size of the swap file as the solution, but that did not help.

Do you have opencv3 installed?
