Hi there!

I am trying to install ROS on an ALIX board running Voyage Linux 0.8.5 which is based on Debian Squeeze. I followed the experimental guide for installing ROS Fuerte on Debian. Things are working fine until I perform step 1.5 entering

rosdep install -ay --os="debian:squeeze"

I found some suggestions on how to fix the problem, but they didn't help: : This guy has a very similar problem, but updating the rosdep database did not change anything. However, the test works on my machine. : Similar problem, but I am not sure what to do in my case. However, the package python-qt-bindings I am missing is not contained by the git repository. Therefore, the suggestion probably wouldnt't help anyway, right? : I tried to manually (apt-get) install python-qt-bindings and pcl (or their equivalents for Debian Squeeze in the repositories). It doesn't work but it could be caused by the fact that the equivalent Debian packages do not have the same names, so ROS/rosdep does not detect them. However, this is just guess.

I am really confused and I really need some help to ROS running. Finally, this is the output after performing rosdep install -ay --os="debian:squeeze":

No one has yet defined any rosdep rules for python-qt-bindings in Debian Squeeze.

You can define them and contribute back to the community by following these directions.

One of the Ubuntu stanzas may possibly work for Squeeze. You can experiment with them.
