the documentation on the ROS wiki  describes the common steps for
various build configurations (the poky distro and the `nameless`
OpenEmbedded-Core setup) and various release versions of ROS (hydro, indigo
At the release of meta-ros version 0.2 (for hydro), I tested it with the
mainly-used build configurations at that time (OpenEmbedded-Core master
branch and Poky dizzy). The current head of the meta-ros git repository
provides indigo for the current master of OpenEmbedded-Core, and the Poky
distro versions jethro and krogoth.
Can you tell us which Build Configuration you currently use?
(The build configuration is shown at the beginning of every bitbake run.)
Which ROS distro version would you like to use?
If you do not have hard constraints on the distro version, I suggest to go
for the indigo release and use the HEAD from the current git repository.
That version for meta-ros should work with the current master of
OpenEmbedded-Core, and the poky distros jethro and krogoth.
