I am building ROS Groovy Desktop on a Pandaboard running Ubuntu 12.04 Precise using armhf. As ROS is not currently released for armhf I have had to compile Groovy from source. I am attempting to compile RVIZ and it crashes part-way through with errors related to "undefined reference to 'vtable for Assimp::IOSystem' "

  • Does anyone know how I can get past this error and get RVIZ to compile properly?

See below for the full output from running Make within the RVIZ directory:

I had the same issue and I solved it by patching mesh_loader.cpp by adding the next lines after the assimp include lines:

#  ifdef __arm__                 // fix for ARM build
#include <strings.h>
bool Assimp::IOSystem::ComparePaths(const char *p1, const char *p2) const
{
    return !::strcasecmp(p1, p2);
}
#  endif

This is basically the same patch as here applied for the collada_urdf package: h++ps://groups.google.com/forum/#!msg/ros-sig-embedded/26XlDtZhyNs/OexZAx6BCBcJ</strings.h>

Did the trick to Odroid running Ubuntu Linaro 12.11 and ROS Hydro ;)

Spot on. As small of a change this is without it a build of rviz is a no go. :D

Following is the path to the file "/home/pi/ros_catkin_ws/src/rviz/src/rviz/mesh_loader.cpp" if you are following the setups on wiki.ros.org

RVIZ is pointless to have on the pandaboard. It is not powerful enough to run it and does not have the required video drivers to make it work. Just remove the package and anything that depends on the rviz package.

Interestingly if you compile it, this means you can compile packages that depend on rviz, and then disable / not actually use rviz when you are running them.

I wanted the Rqt stuff and the Rviz was just a dependency (along with VLC player?!?!). So if you want to use and develop something like the Rqt dashboard this is definitely a must. As for using Rviz on such a platform - yeap, it's like shooting yourself in the kneecap.

The Indigo builds for Trusty armhf include a patched version of ASSIMP that no longer requires patches to all of the packages that depend on it.

Based on an installation tutorial for ROS Groovy on Raspbian Pi:

h++p://www.ros.org/wiki/groovy/Installation/Raspbian/Source

I created a tutorial for ROS Groovy running under Ubuntu 12.04 on a PandaBoard (armhf):

h++p://www.ros.org/wiki/groovy/Installation/PandaBoard/Source

It's recommended to use the robot installation, this will have all neccessary messages but no grafic tools.

Hope this will help somebody.
