I spent the last few days on getting MRPT to work on my robot but it just does not work and I do not get what I am doing wrong.
Our robot is controlled by an ASUS Eee PC 4G, which runs Debian Lenny ( 5 ) with a kernel patch for realtime operations. The first problem that occured was, that the memory was to small to compile all MRPT-libs, but thx to your helpt it could be solved by leaving off some unused stuff ( http://www.mrpt.org/node/648 ).
Next problem was how to compile and use just the libraries I need. So far I want to use two things, the Hokuyo HWDRIVER from mrpt-hwdrivers and the ICP Algorithm from mrtp-slam. The compilation and installation worked out fine and I figured out which flags are necessary to make it work (http://www.mrpt.org/node/657). On my Thinkpad it worked fine, even with MRPT 0.9.3. But to solve the occuring problems on the netbook I was adviced to use the latest SVN Version which was r2477 at that time.
It compiled and installed as intended, but now I am getting a SIGSEGV signal from it as described recently (http://www.mrpt.org/node/657#comment-494).
Next I tried to get the latest svn version and hoped the Problem may have gone away with it, but I wasn't even able to compile the latest version.
I have absolutely no clue what to do now. I think MRPT is a great framework but I am shortly before giving up, because I can not get it to work. Need some advice here on what to do now please.
