Any ideas why this fails and what the workaround is?

Any ideas why this fails and what the workaround is?

The error message seems rather clear:

Could NOT find Boost (missing: python) (found version "1.69.0")

according to CMake, your Boost installation does not have the python module.

So two options:

  1. if you're certain it should be present, try to find out why CMake doesn't find it
  2. if it's not present, make sure to install it

Looks like this documents a similar problem.


Edit: from trying this out in a Docker container (fedora:32), it would appear the version suffix for Boost Python 1.69 on Fedora 32 needs to be python3.8.

So it seems this would need to be changed in cv_bridge/CMakeLists.txt, specifically these lines.

Comments

it's there:

locate libboost_python
/usr/lib64/libboost_python38.a
/usr/lib64/libboost_python38.so
/usr/lib64/libboost_python38.so.1.69.0
Package boost-python3-1.69.0-18.fc32.x86_64 is already installed.

I found a suggestion to use elseif in the CMakeList.txt file, but I'm not sure how to do that and which file that is.

Or does this suggestion to use BOOST_AUTO_LINK_TAGGED or BOOST_AUTO_LINK_VERSIONED or BOOST_AUTO_LINK_SYSTEM apply? Not sure which to choose, unless that's only for Windows.

I have no idea right now.

Does a plain CMakeLists.txt with something like this also fail?

cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 3.5)
project(test CXX)
find_package(Boost REQUIRED COMPONENTS python)

If it does, this would not be a ROS problem any more, but a plain CMake one.

Package boost-python3-1.69.0-18.fc32.x86_64 is already installed.

does that also install the development headers? Those are typically needed, not just the runtime library.


Edit: this is the logic used in cv_bridge/CMakeLists.txt. It could be the conditional there doesn't work on your system.

Perhaps the python there should be python38 or something similar.

I believe the dev headers were already isntalled:

Package boost-python3-devel-1.69.0-18.fc32.x86_64 is already installed.

What folder is the correct CMakeLists.txt file that I should be looking for? Is it ~/src/vision_opencv/cv_bridge/CMakeLists.txt So just remove all of the contents of that file and replace it with your suggested 3 lines?

No.

You create a new empty directoy somewhere (perhaps in /tmp), then create a new, empty CMakeList.txt and add those lines. Then save. Then mkdir build; cd build; cmake ...

What would the full cmake command be?

That is the full cmake command.

Perhaps the python there should be python38 or something similar. I changed in ~/src/vision_opencv/cv_bridge/CMakeLists.txt

    find_package(Boost REQUIRED python3.8)
  else()
    find_package(Boost REQUIRED python3.8)

Now getting a different error:

ok

That is the full cmake command.

Got it thanks see below:
