Hi, The ros opensuse install page has just been updated recently and I was trying out the installation on old opensuse. I'd like to update the ros wiki regarding installing ros on opensuse with my findings.

I am facing an issue that when I run cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/opt/ros/fuerte -DSETUPTOOLS_DEB_LAYOUT=OFF I get the following error

CMake Error at catkin/cmake/safe_execute_process.cmake:13 (message):

Try running ccmake in the build directory, go over the available options and check if all path settings are OK. Maybe e.g. the python path on opensuse differs from ubuntu.

Hi Thanks Steven, I found that cmake /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/empy-3.1-py2.7.egg/em.pyc was wrongly generated as my python module install(empy) had problem. I uninstalled empy using pip and then re-installed it from source instead of using easy_install. Now the issue is fixed. Regards, Mandeep
