I was hoping to get ROS-serial and the Arduino working together - but I keep getting stuck with the librxtx. There always seems to be a version mismatch between the architecture and the module.

Also, has anyone got ROS serial working with the parallax propeller chip - it seems to be a much more capable controller than the Arduino

I have solved lib errors these issues by loading a new ros (diamondback, and new libboost.

Now I am getting a traceback import error on no module rosserial_msgs.msg

The rosserial stack is very new and still in active development, we are in the middle of writing documentation right now. Usable documentation should be out by the middle of next week.

The goal of the stack is to support any platform with a serial port. However right now our library maker is making specific assumptions about the target architecture (8-bit avr). The propeller may work, but you will definitely need to define your own io functions. This customization will be included in the documentation.

As for the librxtx error, what error are you getting?

Never mind - working now - forgot I needed to re make rosserial after loading diamond back.

I am getting Hello World? in a chatter window.
