Hello everyone, I was trying to do source based installation of recently released "Moveit". When the installation reached 61% I am getting the following error:

[ 60%] Building CXX object moveit_ros/planning/trajectory_execution_manager/CMakeFiles/test_controller_manager.dir/test/test_app.cpp.o

I tried uninstalling ROS,reinstalled it again without debian based moveit and it gives the same issue. Please help me on this.
I am working on *ROS-GROOVY *Ubuntu 12.04

What version of moveit are you using? It's likely that recent versions of moveit are not fully backwards compatible with Groovy.

Yes, it is not compatible for previous versions.

Current moveit is not compatible to previous versions of ROS. So, maybe that's the reason. Also, current version of moveit is also not compatible to ROS-Kinetic.

Just a comment on the "not compatible to ROS-Kinetic": that's actually not entirely accurate. A release of MoveIt for Kinetic is in the works, and can already be built from sources. See the instructions on the website. If something doesn't work, report it.
