I've installed groovy on a pandaboard following this tutorial

Now I'm trying building the hokuyo node and I'm missing a LOT of dependencies:

  • sensor_msgs
  • geometry_msgs
  • diagnostic_msgs
  • diagnostic_updater
  • self_test
  • dynamic_reconfigure

And possibly more. Now I have two problems with this:

  1. Why do I have do manually download so many packages there were previously part of the base install?

  2. Is there a way to automate package downloading and building? Isn't rosdep supposed to be the solution to this? why doesn't $ rosmake <package_name> --rosdep-install work anymore? (no such option)

I may also point out that groovy builds with catkin, why instructions for the hokuyo for example still point to rosmake so I'm doing a mix here, and I hope in the end it will work.

Edit: doesn't exist. So I'm manually perusing the svn trying to find the package source.

Hi Claudio, does dynamic_reconfigure solved the hokuyo_node install issues? I have same issue for install hokuyo_node, but after i install dynamic_reconfigure, seems nothing change. i have no idea how it's work. can you point out what should i do on next step?

The page you linked to tells you that there are more variants you can use with the wstool command, so that the pacakages you miss would be included (e.g. 'robot'). I have not tried this though, so maybe there are problems with that.

Find latest dynamic_reconfigure on github now, as many other ros packages:

The hokuyo_node package seems to still use rosbuild/rosmake, so to install this from source, you will need a rosbuild workspace in addition to the catkin workspace.

Most of the mentioned packages are available in the Mobile variant. Thanks KruseT.
