Hello, I am trying to learn ROS. So far I had many errors. Thanks to ROS Answers, I found solutions to them so far.

I could not solve this one, so here is my question.

I get this error when I am trying the 17th tutorial - Writing a Simple Publisher and Subscriber (C++)-

irem@willis:~$ cd ~/fuerte_workspace/sandbox/beginner_tutorials
irem@willis:~/fuerte_workspace/sandbox/beginner_tutorials$ make
mkdir -p bin
cd build && cmake -Wdev -DCMAKE_TOOLCHAIN_FILE=`rospack find rosbuild`/rostoolchain.cmake  ..

Is rospack package installed ? (check it out doing roscd rospack, if you have an error message, it is not installed)

If it isn't installed try to do 'sudo apt-get install ros-fuerte-rospack' to install it.

Looks like the package sd_msgs is not there. Strange error, might be an issue with ros installation.
