I'm trying to install hydro by following the instructions on the wiki, but when I get to

$ rosdep install --from-paths src --ignore-src --rosdistro hydro -y --os=debian:wheezy

I get

E: Unable to locate package ros-hydro-roscpp-serialization

After some brief experimentation with apt-get, I determined that I can't seem to access any ros packages. How can I resolve this? Sorry, I'm new to linux.

The easyest way to get ROS work on Raspberry is following this instruction, however it is groovy and not hydro:

I have it running on the raspberry and it works well. As you are new to linux I definitely recommend first trying the groovy version, as it is much quicker and easier to set up on the raspberry (no need to build the packages from source yourself).

Thanks, I was able to run it with this.
