I am having having trouble installing ROS kinetic on Raspbian sketch, using the instructions at Installing ROS Kinetic on the Raspberry Pi . It works fine up until 3.2.2 Resolving Dependencies with rosdep. But when I run the command

sudo ./src/catkin/bin/catkin_make_isolated --install -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release --install-space /opt/ros/kinetic

I get error when it tries to process class_loader the message reads

imported targets not available for Boost version Call Stack

It is unable to find requested boost libraries. I am pasting the entire console ouput after the last successful package processing:

I've seen similar issues (on regular amd64 hosts) with such new CMake versions. You're using 3.7, while Kinetic is specced to work with 3.0.2 (see REP-3). That is a huge difference. Not saying it is the cause though.

But aren't those the minimum requirements? And if that is the cause, how should I go about fixing it?

Yes, they are the minimum requirements, but CMake has evolved quite a bit. Again, I'm not sure, as I haven't digged into the issue myself. Which version of Boost do you have installed?

Perhaps @Dirk Thomas can way in.

Which version of Boost do you have installed?

I ask because I get a lot of Google results (searching for Imported targets not available for Boost version) that seem to imply that newer Boost versions require new CMake versions.

See https://stackoverflow.com/questions/4... fi.
