Is it possible for ORB Slam to work on raspberry pi? I have been trying to build it on a rpi 3 with raspbian jessie and ROS Indigo. I get the following error when trying to build g2o using make:

Scanning dependencies of target g2o
[ 3%] Building CXX object CMakeFiles/g2o.dir/g2o/types/types_sba.cpp.o
*** Error in `/usr/bin/c++': double free or corruption (top): 0x00c7a348 ***
CMakeFiles/g2o.dir/build.make:54: recipe for target 'CMakeFiles/g2o.dir/g2o/types/types_sba.cpp.o' failed
make[2]: *** [CMakeFiles/g2o.dir/g2o/types/types_sba.cpp.o] Aborted

make[1]: *** [CMakeFiles/g2o.dir/all] Error 2
Makefile:76: recipe for target 'all' failed
make: *** [all] Error 2

Does anyone know how to solve this? Any help would be appreciated. Regards.

Please format console copy/pastes using the Preformatted text button in the future. It's the one with 101010 on it.

As to your problem: do you have swap enabled on your system? If not, try that first. Compiling C++ can use quite some memory.

yes i have set up 1 GB of swap space on the board.

I'd try 2gb at least.

Just tried it with 2GB of swap space, and unfortunately the same error persisted.

Searching for that exact error message gets me this. Not sure if it's even related, but could be a hint. If possible, also try with more swap and / or monitor memory usage during compiling. 2GB might not be enough.

It's because your gcc is not new enough. You either have to fix some compiler flags, install a newer version of gcc, or use Ubuntu Mate which comes with a (new enough) gcc 5.4.

I actually share my experience building ORB-SLAM2 on Pi 3 here. I am not sure how relevant ORB-SLAM2 is to ORB-SLAM the original, but I suppose they should not be too different. And I did not use ROS. If you stick with ORB-SLAM and/or Raspbian Jessie and/or ROS, then you will have to adapt. I hope my sharing will help lead you in the right direction, even though it may not be totally applicable.
