Hi there!

I've tried to install and run rosjava on a Ubuntu 10.04 USB-Stick. newest versions of ros electric, eclipse and jdk are installed

The rosjava installation (into the stacks-folder) finished without error (also tried several reinstalls)

When I run rosmake (e.g. in the pubsub tutorial) it never finishes (Task 27/28 runs for hours, counting seconds but not finishing)

I even tried to copy the entire ros-directory the local harddrive and to change the $ROS_PACKAGE_PATH and running it there. No changes at all.

When I abort the making (ctrl+c) it throws this error:

rosrun rosjava_bootstrap rosjava_tutorial_pubsub > if [ ! -f .project ] ; then sed s/PROJECT_NAME/rosjava_tutorial_pubsub/ rospack find rosjava_bootstrap/eclipse/eclipse-project-template > .project ; touch .project-generated; fi if [ ! -f .classpath ] ; then rosrun rosjava_bootstrap --eclipse rosjava_tutorial_pubsub > .classpath ; touch .classpath-generated; fi rosrun rosjava_bootstrap rosjava_tutorial_pubsub [rosrun] You have chosen a non-unique executable, please pick one of the following: 1) /media/DATA/ros_test/ros/electric/stacks/rosjava_core/rosjava_bootstrap/scripts/ 2) /media/DATA/ros_test/ros/electric/stacks/rosjava_core/rosjava_bootstrap/src/main/python/rosjava_bootstrap/

any ideas?

That definitely looks like a bug. I guess it's a problem with the distribution though. rosjava_bootstrap/scripts/ does not exist. Maybe try installing rosjava from source?

We tried this already, with no luck. As a workaround we changed the setup now, so that we are not booting ubuntu from a usb-stick but running it directly in a virtual box (so we can take the VM to other computers)
