Unable to install jevois-sdk-dev on 16.04.1-Ubuntu

0 votes

I'm trying to install the developer sdk and I get the following error.

$ sudo apt install jevois-sdk-dev
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 jevois-sdk-dev : Depends: jevois-sdk (>= 1.5.0) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Please help

While I just solved that for Xenial, I did not tried to recompile / develop anything yet!

So, you need to add an Ubuntu ppa that will give you access to Python3.6-dev this way:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:deadsnakes/ppa

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get upgrade

sudo apt install python3.6-dev jevoisbase-platform jevois-platform jevois-sdk jevois-sdk-dev

And tha's all!

Thanks for noting, there indeed was a bug in the dependencies for Ubuntu 16.04

We just posted the latest JeVois 1.6.0 which should fix this.

Please see instructions at http://jevois.usc.edu
