I have been trying to install Ros for the past 3 days. I couldnt compile the collada-parser because of it i couldnt compile other packages too..urdf all..

The error is mainly related to colladadom package which was previously present in robot_model fuerte was not available in the repo now.

I also tried compiling the colladadom package from their website. But I couldnt compile that packages too because some boost library version issues..

And I also have the problem of compiling PCL & opencv .. But I have both the libraries compiled from their sources. So I deleted those stacks.

I dont want to clutter the post by pasting any errors.

Has anyone successfully compiled the ros_groovy on archlinux? Can it be or not? I mean the desktop version or robot version.not the bare_bones one,

I'm attempting to compile groovy from sources on a Pandaboard. I'm trying with the mobile variant.

PCL I just moved out from the sources, I'm not sure I need that. Collada was missing dae.h, I sourced it from the fuerte install I have on my laptop.

Which variant are you trying to install?

If you want to install ROS Groovy on Arch Linux, the easiest way is to use AUR packages.

There is something that you need to realize: packaging ROS Groovy under Arch Linux can get quite complicated since it's a rolling release and Groovy is already outdated. This is especially true for complex libraries such as PCL or Gazebo that pull tons of dependencies.

Most of the packages are made/maintained by two people (zootboy and I), which is why it's not foolproof, so feedback is always welcome. If a problem happens when installing packages, try to contact the maintainers (you can leave a message on the related AUR package page).

As for collada-dom, PCL, opencv, collada_parser or collada_urdf, official packages and/or AUR packages exist.
