Hi All,

I was following a guide on building ros for an armhf device (beaglebone) however ran into a problem in that my compiler failed when compiling the level 2 packages

The compiler error is:

[rosmake-0] Starting >>> rosconsole [ make ]                                    
[rosmake-0] Finished <<< rosconsole  No Makefile in package rosconsole

Stackoverflow says the g++: internal compiler error: Killed (program cc1plus) error is due to a lack of memory, which may be correct as the beagle bone has 250Mb, though the original guide did not mention anything on it being a problem.

Can anyone suggest a workaround or how to cross compile ros for armhf?

I've seen this on other boards: when the compiler has to fetch so many things it runs out of memory, strange error messages are output. To be sure of this just run HTOP or TOP in a terminal and observe the memory.

To get away with the compilation you need to increase your memory: either create or modify a swap file as shown here.
