Im a trying to run gmapping on multiple turtlebot3's, but since i cannot be the master for more than one turtlebot I want to make them run it by themself. Every guide for installing ros on raspbian is for raspbian jessie. When I try to follow those guides i end up with:

E: Unable to locate package ros-kinetic-slam-gmapping

I have also tried follow the guide "Installing ROS Kinetic on the Raspberry Pi" but when i tried to use


it returned nothing in the terminal, so I am unsure what to do. On a side note I was wondering if what I am duing is a good idea, is the raspberry pi 3 able to run such a program?
