Rosbuild does not work on groovy source install

Hi all,

I'm running into frustrations getting a rosbuild package to build correct.

My machine was setup following these instructions.

However, I added a new package and rosbuild gives me the following output:

[rosmake-0] Starting >>> mavlink_ros [ make ]
[rosmake-0] Finished <<< mavlink_ros [SKIP] No rule to make target None
[ rosmake ] Results:
[ rosmake ] Built 24 packages with 0 failures.
[ rosmake ] Summary output to directory
[ rosmake ] /home/ubuntu/.ros/rosmake/rosmake_output-20130626-183602

If it's any help, here is the output I get from "rospack find mk"

[rospack] Error: stack/package mk not found

Any insight as to what is going on?

Don't you have to use catkin?

rosbuild cannot work without a Makefile. Please see the tutorial for creating a package

You should also make sure that you have the ros-groovy-ros installed which will bring in mk and all the other required packages to be able to build.

That was exactly my problem. It appears does not include mk amongst other packages.

That was an oversight in the perception variant. I've added core ros as a dependency. That URL now has core ros, including mk.
