Am installing ROS Groovy (from source) on a Tablet, whose Kernel is armv7l. When running the command: $ rosdep install --from-paths src --ignore-src --rosdistro groovy -y Items install up until: executing command [sudo apt-get install -y libtbb-dev] as it shows the following error: Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Package libtbb-dev is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source E: Package 'libtbb-dev' has no installation candidate ERROR: the following rosdeps failed to install apt: command [sudo apt-get install -y libtbb-dev] failed

Any suggestions? If not needed, what other rosdeps exist after this one that the device did not get a chance to install?

Thanks...

TBB packages are not built for ARM architectures (not sure if that is even possible/supported).

You can however pass the robust option (-r) to rosdep, and it will continue installing the other dependencies if some packages were not found:

rosdep install --from-paths src --ignore-src --rosdistro groovy -yr

So no need to revert back to installing all dependencies by hand.

What will break if libtbb-dev and collada-dom-dev failed to install?

I tried the same thing on the gumstix and had to find out that rosdep will not work for a not x86 or 64 Bit system because the packages have not been built for your architecture. I went the hard way and installed every dependency by hand. This will by far not be the only missing package!

Thanks. I ran the following instruction a couple of times

rosdep install --from-paths src --ignore-src --rosdistro groovy -yr

and the only three packages that were not installed were:

libtbb-dev
collada-dom-dev
yaml-cpp

Thanks.
