Have you already seen wiki/pepper? That links to ros-sig-aldebaran, which still has some traffic. I see some related questions there.

All pkg seem to have been released for Kinetic, so that would seem ..

.. that the authors/maintainers have the feeling they work.

the package ros-indigo-driver-base for example is not released for kinetic, this package is necessary after the pepper tutorial for the works with pepper..

Well, the indigo-driver-base package specifically will not be released for Kinetic, no, as that is the Indigo version. It would be at least ros-kinetic-driver-base, but that pkg isn't available after Jade anymore.

Are you sure the Pepper pkgs need driver_base still?

i don't know whether pepper needs this pkg, but i followed the tutorials for pepper and there stands this package.. the next problem is the Ubuntu version 16.04, it seems a libboost problem, by 16.04 is the new version 1.58 but it seems they needs the 1.55 version

Well, the tutorials (you don't link us to which specific tutorials you are referring to) seem to all say that they are for ROS Indigo, not ROS Kinetic.

But again; you should probably ask this on Aldebaran's support forum / mailing list.
