Re: raspivid --timeout 0 not working

Thanks for putting the feature back in, it's necessary for streaming, which is working well indeed :)

Re: ROS (Robot Operating System) on RPi

Unfortunatly it is an error. :cry: The error is shown after the user (during the login) which does not log in at all. Try downloading the image again, given the standardised platform the problem is likely due to the corruption of the image. Anyone who has a working image on them, can you do an md5s...

Re: ROS (Robot Operating System) on RPi

Whoa! I've not been getting any notifications of these updates! Well done guys on making progress on getting Groovy to work on the RPi! I'm currently on a sprint so won't be able to help until at least 2 weeks in but I still want to write a tutorial on the basis of my new chassis and would be great ...

Re: ROS on RPi

I have started the build process for Raspbain 2012-12-16-wheezy-raspbain That's great! Given the amount of interest in running ROS on he pi maybe it's worth getting project up on github (where ROS is moving towards with Groovy). Syncronising effort there would be easier that in this forum thread. W...

Re: ROS on RPi

Great to hear you got it working! And thanks for sharing the steps!
For those following the suggestions please not that "/ros" is actually "'~/ros"

3) move the "rosserial.rosinstall" file we created into "/ros"

Re: ROS on RPi

I've managed to get it to work but I've not got around to documenting it as I'm busy with work. So try installing it through on Jeem's image. First make a file called rosserial.rosinstall with the following contents and place it in the home directory - other: {local-name: /opt/ros/cturtle/ros} - oth...

Re: ROS on RPi

I've just upgraded Jeem's image (took a well over an hour) and will look into making rosserial_arduino work for my project will share what I've done. Thinking of writing a non-academic beginner tutorial how to ROSify your bot based while I'm at it.

Re: ROS on RPi

Yeah I don't use the x server and just do everything over a command terminal. (CTRL + ALT + F1). I had no problems using the rosserial_arduino on my image. Jeem got a more polished distribution together (link below) try using his. I successfully installed ROS Fuerte ROS-Full layer on Raspbian. Just ...

Re: ROS on RPi

Great, I'm moving stuff over to the new official Raspbian that was released yesterday, might as well use that. But need to figure out a way to persist ROS high level packages through future OS upgrades. I do need to write out a list of dependencies too, there are a LOT, to complicate matters Fuerte ...

Re: ROS on RPi

Ok this is what I have so far: RaspbianFuerteDesktop.img.tar.gz It's a little dirty in that it has some files in the home directory that I was playing around with, but I have managed to compile OGRE finally working my way through RVIZ but assimp is giving me a headache. To install that simply run th...

Re: ROS on RPi

I've managed to get past the YAML problem with Raspbian (I replied to your other thread but it's not been approved yet apparently) At that point I hit a problem with OpenCV libraries, however looking at what others managed to do with OpenCV on Pi was quite limited so I'm not trying to get the bare m...

Re: ROS on RPi

I've just found instruction on the ROS wiki on how to setup-up ROS on the RPi here may be of help to some, but be warned that it takes a while to install, all the more reason to make an SD card image!

Re: ROS on RPi

mkopack thanks for sharing these headaches with us I got my Pi last week and have been itching to use it with ROS for my robotics projects!
Please keep us updated, I'll try to follow your steps over the next few days, and want to get a ready-to-use SD card image for people to get stuck in!
