I am trying to compile and install ROS Fuerte in a Debian box.

I have problems compiling Ogre, as my PC has an Intel Integrated graphics card, and Ogre seems to depend on nVidia.

Is it mandatory to have a nVidia graphics card? And if not, how can I take out this dependency?

Thank you!

I deleted the nvidia dependencies from the manifest.xml file , and add an "exit 0" to the script to avoid nvidia toolkit detection (I know it is not the solution). And now I am getting the following compilation error: BUILD FAILED:

For just compiling Ogre, I don't think having an NVidia card is really mandatory. Can't you just install nvidia-cg-toolkit for building it?

I am trying to get ROS to compile on the Raspberry Pi and am running into the same problem, and there is no nvidia-cg-toolkit for ARMHF architecture so I'm kinda stuck. Is this dependency enforced by ROS? Maybe worth getting their the contributors to change it as there are a lot of people trying to install ROS on the RPi as it's so versatile!

If you want the developers to change it, the best way is to file a ticket here:

Thanks, I've done as you suggested. Really excited to get this working on the RPi :)
