Sorry, rosstack looks for stack.xml, not manifest.xml. Try using
"rospack find pcl". rospack seems to use folder names, so you should
symlink /usr/share/pcl -> /usr/share/pcl-1.6. Looking back at your
original error message, it looks like the command "rospack deps-manifests
costmap_2d" is what is failing. So the "rospack" command should be the
you're using to find PCL. I just tried creating the symlink, installing
manifest.xml, and running the rospack command to find PCL and find the
costmap deps, and it seems to have worked.
Yes, thanks -- that got me much further in the process. Here are the other
changes I had to make to get "rosmake -a" to complete:
- I had to add a "ros" package to rosdep-fedora.yaml to allow "rosdep
install -a" to work. I ended up just giving an empty list of yum packages
and that seemed to work.
- the manifest.xml for pcl refers to pkg-config things like
pcl_common-1.5, while the pcl RPM installs un-versioned pkg-config things,
so I had to change that both in the installed pcl manifest and in the
copied version in perception_pcl/pcl_ros/manifest.xml. I also added
`mysql_config --libs` to the ldflags list because libmysqlclient.so is in a
subdirectory of /usr/lib64.
- added more rosbuild_link_boost ($executable system) calls to
- added more instances of "set(PythonLibs_FIND_VERSION 2)" and
rosbuild_link_boost($executable system) to CMakeLists.txt's as needed
- added the following to laser_pipeline/laser_filters/CMakeLists.txt
- added protobuf to the generated .rosinstall as described at
So this all worked fine, and then I tried to rosmake the code provided by
the students ...
Failed to invoke /opt/ros/fuerte/bin/rospack deps-manifests social_robot

Arrggghhh ... does this mean that I need a manifest.xml for opencv-devel
too, or something like that?
Increasingly tempted to just jump ship to ubuntu and be done with it, but
I'm stubborn. :)
