Hello, I'm trying to install ros groovy on my gentoo system. I more or less followed the instructions on the tutorial and solver the dependencies problems so far.

But now I face a problem that is apparently not related to external libraries while compiling rviz:

[ 26%] Building CXX object src/rviz/CMakeFiles/rviz.dir/ogre_helpers/ogre_render_queue_clearer.cpp.o

<== Failed to process package 'rviz':

Reproduce this error by running:
==> /home/fox/ros_catkin_ws/devel_isolated/robot_state_publisher/ make -j4 -l4

Command failed, exiting.

Here the problem is uint32_t is not defined. I solved this problem by adding #include <boost/cstdint.hpp> in the file line.cpp. I'm not sure if that's the good way to go but it does the trick for this file but I encounter an other problem:

Apart from the file line.cpp I had to edit three more files. To sumup:

line.cpp: add #include <boost/cstdint.hpp>
interactive_object.h: add #include <boost/weak_ptr.hpp>
interactive_marker.h: add #include <boost/thread.hpp>
map_display.h: add #include <boost/thread/mutex.hpp>

After this changes rviz compiled ok. Should I submit the bug somewhere?

Most of the bugs have just been fixed in

I'll take care of the line.cpp fix. Thanks for reporting this.
