I'm new in the world of ROS and have just installed ROS (Fuerte). I'm trying to make my way through the tutorial steps, but I'm encountering some problems. When I execute 'rosmake beginner_tutorials' in step 4 (1.2.1. Using rosmake) I get the following messages:

[rosmake-0] Starting >>> std_msgs [ make ]                                                                                   
[rosmake-0] Finished <<< std_msgs ROS_NOBUILD in package std_msgs

[rosmake-0] Finished <<< rospy ROS_NOBUILD in package rospy

[rosmake-0] Starting >>> roscpp [ make ]                                                                                     
[rosmake-0] Finished <<< roscpp ROS_NOBUILD in package roscpp
 No Makefile in package roscpp                                 
[rosmake-0] Starting >>> beginner_tutorials [ make ]

The building process completes quickly and reports 0 failures.

The above messages and the short building time are not what I expected based on the tutorial information.

What is going wrong here ?

I don't see anything wrong in the information you provided.

Those are not errors.

When building core packages that were installed from binaries, the ROS_NOBUILD file tells rosmake it is not necessary to compile anything there.
