When trying to rosmake the nao_openni package I receive the following error:

Linking CXX executable ../bin/teleop_nao_ni

/opt/ros/electric/stacks/robot_model/urdf/lib/ error: undefined reference to 'operator<<(std::basic_ostream<char, std::char_traits<char=""> >&, TiXmlNode const&)'

collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

This error only occurs on making the teleop_nao_ni executable. Anyone have any suggestions on what I can do to fix the error?

Note: All the dependencies for the package compile fine, the paths are correct (ros_package_path, pythonpath, pythonhome, ros_workspace) and the object file compiles so there shouldn't be an error in the cpp file.

Hi. I had the same problem with the 'planning_models' package in 'armnavigation' stack. You need to edit manifest.xml of the urdf package and append '-ltinyxml' to the 'cpp cflags' line. The resulting line looks like:

<cpp cflags="-I${prefix}/include" lflags="-Wl,-rpath,${prefix}/lib -L${prefix}/lib -lurdf -ltinyxml"/>

I would recommend creating ticket for this fix in the bug tracker for URDF.

Hi, I am running into the same error when trying rosmake nao_remote. Did you have to figure out the problem with the file?

I had the same problems previously but solved by downloading the package: sudo apt-get install ros-electric-joystick-drivers ( adjust to your own ros type)

good luck
