I have copied the gsl package into my ros workspace, it appears in rospack list, but I'm getting this warnings:

Failed to find rosdep gsl for package my_package on OS:ubuntu version:lucid
WARNING: Rosdeps [u'gsl'] could not be resolved

[ rosmake ] WARNING: Rosdep did not detect the following system dependencies as installed: gsl Consider using --rosdep-install option or `rosdep install my_package`

However it compiles and works ok, but there is probably something wrong? Can you halp to get rid of this warnings?

In my_package's manifest.xml change

<rosdep name="gsl" />


<depend package="gsl" />

Thanks, but actually in my_package the depend was correct but in the gsl package there was <rosdep name="gsl" /> so I have change it to <rosdep package="gsl" /> and it works.

Ah. Glad to hear it wasn't too tricky. There seem to be some strange issues with rosdep these days.
