I am new to ROS so please help me with this.

I follow the tutorial to set up Stage and everything was fine until I am trying to use stageros to load an existing world file (also part of the tutorial)


tuan@tuan-laptop:/opt/ros/diamondback/stacks/simulator_stage/stage$ ./bin/stageros world/


Segmentation fault.

The error message is too simple and do not provide much information for me to debug. Please help.

Thanks very much.

Can you load any other world file? Do you get any output besides "Segmentation Fault"?

Can you try it in a debugger (`gdb --args ./bin/stageros world/`) and post a backtrace (`bt`) from the segfault?

Thanks very much. I was using Ubuntu 10.04 and the problem is solved when I upgrade to Ubuntu 10.10. I really appreciate your help. Tuan.

As @Tuan said, upgrading to 10.10 worked, more like cannot reproduce.
