FreeBSD package for ROS

| No Comments | No TrackBacks


Rene Ladan has been working hard over the past several months providing patches to ROS in order to improve FreeBSD compatibility. Now he's announced the first FreeBSD package for ROS, which makes installation patch-free and no-hassle.


The first FreeBSD package for ROS is now available, providing the equivalent of ros-cturtle-ros on Ubuntu (but without the build directories). The cleaned up instructions are available at the wiki.

Thanks go to the ROS developers for applying all the patches I sent to them.

I will probably add more ROS packages in the future, starting with the tutorials and the Lego NXT stacks (the latter because that's the only robot I have myself, apart from some webcams).
