I am trying to build ogre_tools using the source present in ROS Diamondback on a 64bit Mac SnowLeopard. I have successfully installed Ogre (after fetching the latest version from their repo) and have placed the Ogre.framework where the ogre_tools build process looks for it. However, I am stuck with this error now,

..... Some output from the make command.... make -f CMakeFiles/python_ogre_tools.dir/build.make CMakeFiles/python_ogre_tools.dir/depend /opt/local/bin/cmake -E cmake_progress_report /Users/sagnikdhar/ros/visualization_common/ogre_tools/CMakeFiles 20 [ 94%] Generating src/ogre_tools/ogre_tools_swig_generated.cpp, lib/ /opt/local/bin -c++ -Wall -python -modern -new_repr -keyword -fastdispatch -fvirtual -fastinit -fastunpack -I/opt/local/lib/wx/include/gtk2-unicode-release-2.8 -I/opt/local/include/wx-2.8 -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 -D_LARGE_FILES -D__WXGTK__ -DSWIG_TYPE_TABLE=_wxPython_table -DWXP_USE_THREAD=1 -o /Users/sagnikdhar/ros/visualization_common/ogre_tools/src/ogre_tools/ogre_tools_swig_generated.cpp -outdir ../lib -module ogre_tools /Users/sagnikdhar/ros/visualization_common/ogre_tools/src/ogre_tools/ogre_tools.i

make[2]: * [src/ogre_tools/ogre_tools_swig_generated.cpp] Error 1

make[1]: * [CMakeFiles/python_ogre_tools.dir/all] Error 2

make: * [all] Error 2

Any idea what is going wrong ?

I found a discussion thread which discusses a similar problem, however the solution points to a ticket (Ticket ID 818) on the WillowGarage site, but the link seems broken. Any idea how I could track an older ticket on the Willow Garage site ?

Thanks a lot !

Thanks for the link to the ticket. However it does not solve my problem completely. From what I understand, ogre_tools_swig_generated.cpp is generated from by using swig. But this is failing. When I try to execute the command manually, this is the error that I get ,

"Unable to open file ../lib/ No such file or directory"

Does anyone know what could possibly be going wrong ?

Thanks, Sagnik

Is this still an issue? How have things progressed?

We faced a bunch of other issues on using ROS on a mac and decided to move to Ubuntu. So I haven't had a chance to verify if this problem has been fixed.
