Hello, I am trying to build the catkin workspace on fedora 23 . I am following instructions given here Installation/Source-ROS Wiki. Under the section 2.1.3 Building the Catkin Workspace, for the command-

$ ./src/catkin/bin/catkin_make_isolated --install -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release

My command line session shows the following :

==> Finished processing package [79 of 228]: 'pluginlib'

==> Processing catkin package: 'qt_gui_cpp' ==> Building with env: '/home/tshrotriya/ros_catkin_ws/install_isolated/' Makefile exists, skipping explicit cmake invocation... ==> make cmake_check_build_system in '/home/tshrotriya/ros_catkin_ws/build_isolated/qt_gui_cpp'

==> make -j4 -l4 in '/home/tshrotriya/ros_catkin_ws/build_isolated/qt_gui_cpp' [ 83%] Built target qt_gui_cpp [ 88%] Running SIP generator for qt_gui_cpp_sip Python bindings...

Command failed, exiting.

I am not able to understand the next thing to do, I tried

$ cd /home/tshrotriya/ros_catkin_ws/build_isolated/qt_gui_cpp && /home/tshrotriya/ros_catkin_ws/install_isolated/ make -j4 -l4

But that didn't do much either. Help please.
