I am trying to build ROS on a Beaglebone black. Here is the history:

12 sudo sh -c 'echo "deb precise main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ros-latest.list' 13 wget -O - | sudo apt-key add - 14 sudo apt-get update 15 sudo apt-get install ros-groovy-desktop or sudo apt-get install ros-groovy-ros-base

fails with:

sudo apt-get install ros-groovy-ros-base [sudo] password for ubuntu: Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done E: Unable to locate package ros-groovy-ros-base

Here is the ros-latest.list: deb precise main

I have been successful on both amd64 and Raspberry Pi ubuntu running 12.04 Not sure what is missing here.

I note

sudo apt-get install python-rosinstall


sudo apt-get install build-essential python-yaml cmake subversion wget python-setuptools mercurial git-core man parted diff

worked ok.

@DrBot, you mentioned running Ubuntu on a Raspberry PI ? AKAIK, ubuntu did not support (12.04 at least) ARM6. Have I missed something ?

If running on a BeagleBoard Black, you'll probably want the ARM builds of Ubuntu. Instructions to install can be found on the ROS Ubuntu ARM install page.

The big difference is using:

deb precise main

instead of:

deb precise main
