Hi, I am trying to run 3d_navigation, (which the ros_wiki says is 'unreleased and contains experimental code').

  1. When I am trying to rosinstall, it is giving me following errors.

-ahhhhhhhh, yaml parse error: expected '<document start="">', but found '<scalar>' in "<file>", line 6, column 19. Can anybody tell what might be missing ?

The tutorial says 'Use the following rosinstall to overlay your diamondback installation with the development versions of additional stacks and the 3d_navigation code

- svn:
    local-name: stacks/3d_navigation
- svn:
    local-name: stacks/octomap_mapping
- svn:
    local-name: stacks/motion_planning_common

How to use this in a rosinstall command? example please.....

-I tried to use it like:

$ rosinstall /opt/ros/diamonback https:/

(as the tutrial says: Usage: rosinstall PATH [URI] [options])

-my opt/ros/diamondback/.rosinstall file looks OK too. Here is its content

- other:
    local-name: /opt/ros/diamondback/ros
- other:
    local-name: /opt/ros/diamondback/stacks

Can anybody help me understand what is going wrong ?

Please read the rosinstall documentation.

The usage of rosinstall would be as follows:


Assuming: MY_DEVELOPMENT_LOCATION is where you want to work (usually ~/ros) . And PATH_TO_ROSINSTALL_FILE is where you saved the given rosinstall snippet into a file.
