Hi! Im am amateur programmer and new to ROS, so please bear with me. I have been trying to install ardrone_autonomy on ROS electric, Ubuntu 11.10 version running on a virtual machine. Every time I try the ROSMAKE command I get the following error:

Failed to find rosdep libsdl-dev for package ardrone_autonomy on OS:ubuntu version:oneiric WARNING: Rosdeps [u'libsdl-dev'] could not be resolved . . . .

{------------------------------------------------------------------------------- mkdir: cannot create directory `build': Permission denied -------------------------------------------------------------------------------}

[rosmake-0] Finished <<< ardrone_autonomy [FAIL] [ 0.23 seconds ]
[ rosmake ] Halting due to failure in package ardrone_autonomy. [ rosmake ] Waiting for other threads to complete. [ rosmake ] Results:
[ rosmake ] Built 43 packages with 1 failures.
[ rosmake ] Summary output to directory
[ rosmake ] /home/aalap/.ros/rosmake/rosmake_output-20130630-054134
[ rosmake ] WARNING: Rosdep did not detect the following system dependencies as installed: libsdl-dev Consider using --rosdep-install option or rosdep install ardrone_autonomy

I tried to install rosdep separately as suggested, tried to independently install libsdl-dev and every other corresponding file. After having referred to a few answers and questions already posted, I also tried to alter certain lines in 'manifest.xml', 'CMakelists.txt' and 'rosdep.yaml' as suggested but to no effect.

Please help. Thank you!

Try installing libsdl-dev using synaptic manager and then install the package.
