I'm trying to install cv_bridge on a BeagleBone running Debian. I am using ROS Indigo.

I am getting the following error:

[  5%] Building CXX object vision_opencv/cv_bridge/src/CMakeFiles/cv_bridge_boost.dir/module_opencv2.cpp.o
/home/debian/catkin_ws/src/vision_opencv/cv_bridge/src/module_opencv2.cpp:124:16: error: cannot declare variable ‘g_numpyAllocator’ to be of abstract type ‘NumpyAllocator’

make[1]: *** [vision_opencv/cv_bridge/src/CMakeFiles/cv_bridge_boost.dir/all] Error 2
make: *** [all] Error 2

Tried the usual Google searching and couldn't find an answer. I have OpenCV installed (3.1.0), and verified that OpenCV is working.

Anyone have any thoughts/suggestions?

Thanks Mark

doing some more searching, this link

and this repository

works. It seems it is a matter of using the latest openCV 3.1.0, 3.1.0 does not work with the standard cv_bridge.

Used mikejmills version and compiled correctly.
