I am trying to get a ROS install on an Intel Aero Compute board that is distributed with a yocto platform. I’ve tried two different approaches. One approach is the cross-compilation method mentioned here:
However, after setting up the environment an attempting to
bitbake roslaunch I get an error that says:
ERROR: Nothing RPROVIDES 'python-pyyaml' (but /home/xyz/devel/meta-ros/recipes-ros/ros-comm/roslaunch_1.11.21.bb RDEPENDS on or otherwise requires it)
I’ve done a bit of searching, but I haven’t been able to determine a reasonable solution.
The second method I’ve attempted is a source installation:
Since the compute board has a dev envorment this seemed reasonable.
rosdep update cannot determine the OS. I’m not sure which OS would be the most suitable.
Anyway, any solution on continuing down either path would be appreciated.
