To learn ROS, I follow Learning ROS for Robotics Programming and use the sample code from GitHub.

( )


I got a lot of ROS_NOBUILD when rosmake chapter2_tutorials. The packages with ROS_NOBUILD include catkin, cmake_modules, genmsg, rosclean, rosgraph, etc.

Does it mean rosmake fail to build chapter2_tutorials?

Thank you for taking time on my question.

The reason for this is the difference between dry packages (those that use rosbuild/rosmake) and wet packages which are based on caktin and use catkin_make for compiling. Rosbuild packages can use wet ones, but they are seen as "external" and this is why you see many ROS_NOBUILD messages.

You can find more information here and a guide for the migration here
