Well, it starts off with: sudo sh -c 'echo "deb lucid main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ros-latest.list'. And does a lot of "sudos" later on. We DO NOT have root nor will our admins allow us to add an alternative repository location for security reasons...

Hi there!

We are in an infrastructure where a large number of machines runs an Ubuntu from Netboot (University). We would like to install ROS into a common prefix that will be shared to all machines via NFS. We do not have root on these machines, therefore we would like to be able to build ROS completely from source!! There must be a way, right?! E.g. using cmake/pkg-config to find packages instead of apt...

Has anyone done this?!

Any help will be appreciated!

It would be best to let your fixes go upstream, so that everyone using gentoo does not run into the same problems. Does anyone know whom to contact?!
