Hello guys, I'm trying to cross compile ROS2 for a Raspberry pi 3, my platform is Ubuntu on x86. I use this tutorial link text , when I did the last step ''Trigger a build'', it shows the error blow:

Starting >>> sqlite3_vendor
--- stderr: tinyxml2_vendor
CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake-3.10/Modules/FindPackageHandleStandardArgs.cmake:137 (message):
  Could NOT find TinyXML2 (missing: TINYXML2_LIBRARY TINYXML2_INCLUDE_DIR)

  CMakeLists.txt:6 (find_package)

I checked and this package libtinyxml2-devpackage is already installed.

DO you have any idea about how to solve this issue ? Thank you a lot!

The instructions you linked are old. The current up-to-date cross-compilation instructions for ROS2 can be found here https://index.ros.org/doc/ros2/Tutori...

However, both the old as well as the new ones, are meant for ARM64 platforms and they can't be directly used for RaspberryPi. There are several issues cross-compiling for RaspberryPi.

I have collected some instructions here (they should be easy to follow, in case let me know). https://github.com/alsora/cross_compi...

Your problem can be solved by installing in the sysroot the following package

sudo apt-get install -y libtinyxml2-dev

If the package is already installed, make sure that you are using a correct compiler (g++-6-arm-linux-gnueabihf is the one that works for me) and that you are providing the path to where the library is installed to the toolchain.

Thank you alsora, I think the problem is cmake didn’t setup the right path for the libtinyxml2-dev, do you have any idea aboout this?

I need more information about your configuration in order to answer... Assuming that your raspberryPi sysroot is placed at ~/sysroot and that the library is in ~/sysroot/usr/lib then it should be found automatically when setting the sysroot path in the toolchain.cmake file like this: set(CMAKE_SYSROOT ~/sysroot).

I suggest you to follow the instructions that I linked as these work fine
