I would like to install ROS Kinetic on my Raspberry PI4 using Debian Buster:

PRETTY_NAME="Raspbian GNU/Linux 10 (buster)"
NAME="Raspbian GNU/Linux"
VERSION="10 (buster)"

But following the instruction here => When I type this line => sudo ./src/catkin/bin/catkin_make_isolated --install -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release --install-space /opt/ros/kinetic

I got this output:

==> Processing catkin package: 'qt_gui_cpp' ==> Building with env: '/opt/ros/kinetic/' Makefile exists, skipping explicit cmake invocation... ==> make cmake_check_build_system in '/home/pi/ros_catkin_ws/build_isolated/qt_gui_cpp' ==> make -j4 -l4 in '/home/pi/ros_catkin_ws/build_isolated/qt_gui_cpp' [ 83%] Built target qt_gui_cpp [ 88%] Compiling generated code for qt_gui_cpp_sip Python bindings... make[3]: warning: jobserver unavailable: using -j1.

Reproduce this error by running: ==> cd /home/pi/ros_catkin_ws/build_isolated/qt_gui_cpp && /opt/ros/kinetic/ make -j4 -l4

Command failed, exiting.

Because I didn't find anything that can solve my issue, I would be glad if I can have any help!

I have found the error, the rqt_gui_cpp doesn't compile so I changed it completely and clone the one existing on git by doing this:

cd /home/pi/ros_catkin_ws/src

sudo rm -rf python_qt_binding

git clone

Maybe the one previously downloaded is obsolete...? anyway it has solved this part!

This did work, though unfortunately I have another issue with the OGRE package not being found, with a different version of Libboost needed for the installation. I'm stuck here at the moment if you want to help out.

Hi Marnett5, Yes I will try! It has been a while I haven't touched it, for now I don't have access to the Raspberry but I may have it back soon. Anyway would you provide me the steps you have done? It will help me to remind and understand where it is blocking. Thanks!
