I keep running into this issue when trying to install ROS Kinetic on my Raspberry Pi 3. Followed a few forums with this as the problem but the CMakeLists.txt was already updated with the answers that I found and still I am running into this error. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Pretty new with ROS and coding in general so some detailed steps on how to solve this would be great!

CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:8 (find_package):

Command failed, exiting.

Thank you!

There are a few posts on this, I think I gave up with trying to fix it and went back to Indigo however here is the post with some info

Hi, I'm not sure if you managed to resolve your build issue but if you are willing to start over, we have a Python Fabric script that sets up ROS Kinetic (as well as OpenCV too) on a new Jessie Lite image on a Raspberry Pi 3.

Check out more info here. More than happy to answer questions is you have.

Cheers Jack
