Hi All,

My final goals are to:

install ROS Hydro on Raspberry Pi (Mod B) &&

learn how to install only those core packages that I need

(Due to limited computing resources on the Pi, I'll have to spread out some of my robot's processes across multiple Pi's; It doesn't really make sense for me to install and compile desktop-full versions on every Pi)

On my own, I've managed to:

get myself to a stage where I can run Hydro's "roscore" on the Pi; along with the utilities available in ROS-comm bare bones.

install and compile common_msgs

install and compile angles

sudo apt-get install eigen3-dev

clone in Mike Ferguson's neato packages. Expectedly, it doesn't run right because i do not yet have the TF library, which the node depends on.

My next step was to install "tf" from source. I cloned in the repo from . Then I realized that it relied on a lot of other packages (ie orocos_kdl, tf2, eigen3, angles). I've tried numerous quick and dirty hacks to get geometry to compile correctly but without good result.

What would the recommended workflow be to install TF from source on a Raspberry Pi? I'm hoping this workflow would be something that I can modify from to install other packages (ie SMACH, navigation)

Thanks for your time.

Did you ever find an answer to this? I am having the same problem.

You probably should install from source then delete the packages you don't need:
