I meet a problem when install drcsim. I have installed groovy. After that I installed gazebo stuffs.

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install gazebo osrf-common sandia-hand

sudo apt-get install drcsim

Here is the error:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:

drcsim : Depends: gazebo (>= 1.4.0) but it is not going to be installed

      Depends: osrf-common but it is not going to be installed

      Depends: sandia-hand but it is not going to be installed

E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Any clue for the error? I did not get any error when install gazebo, osrf-common and sandia-hand.

Thank you very much.

I could not reproduce this problem, the transition from uninstall gazebo and install gazebo-current with the rest of drcsim dependencies is automatic in my system. What happen if you run apt-get install -f ?

There are currently two gazebo packages (gazebo and gazebo-current). I believe drcsim depends on gazebo-current. Can you uninstall gazebo and just try to install drcsim to see what it wants to be installed?

sudo apt-get remove gazebo
sudo apt-get install drcsim
