Hello!

  • In the context of Kinetics and the Ubuntu packages located at the above link, I am trying to follow the package installation steps on to an A72-based (ARMv8 aarch64) SoC in the above like and I get as far as ->

1.4 Installation

# sudo apt-get install ros-kinetic-ros-base

**************** initramfs-tools install error **************

That error looks like it's not really related to ros-kinetic-ros-base, but more a problem with your base Linux install.

Can you install any other package (non-ROS) successfully on that system?

Also: no need for sudo if you're running everything as the super user.

Looking at the date this will be of no value to you but may help someone else. That error has nothing to do with the WLS. It is referring to mdadm which is the base for a Raid installation if a user should want to use Raid. As for the other errors after that I am guessing Upstart or Systemd background service in need of config or possibly not set up at all. Systemd for Upstart users would be the place to look.
