I'm trying to compile stage on my OS X but I'm getting an error with libjpeg:

$ rosmake stage --rosdep-install Using environment variable ROS_OS_OVERRIDE name = osxbrew version = lion [ rosmake ] Packages requested are: ['stage']
[ rosmake ] Logging to directory/Users/user/.ros/rosmake/rosmake_output-20120316-145058
[ rosmake ] Expanded args ['stage'] to: ['stage']
[ rosmake ] Generating Install Script using rosdep then executing. This may take a minute, you will be prompted for permissions. . . Using environment variable ROS_OS_OVERRIDE name = osxbrew version = lion Failed to find rosdep libjpeg for package stage on OS:osxbrew version:lion [ rosmake ] rosdep install failed: Rosdep install failed


$ brew install libjpeg Warning: jpeg already installed

I followed the Homebrew Mac OS X install tutorial here:

My version of OS X is 10.7.3

Thanks in advance!

Unfortunately Stage 3.2.2 does not work on OS X. Stage 4.x does however, and there are patches for stage_ros to be compatible for Stage 4 as well. I would recommend that as a solution.

Here are some general notes about it on my blog:
