I want to run AR.Drone's driver by ardrone_autonomy package.I'm working on ROS fuerte and Ubuntu 12.04. I get Segmentation fault (core dumped) error for following command:

rosrun ardrone_autonomy ardrone_driver

How can I fix this problem?

I get a backtrace of the segfault by GDB:

You should open an issue on the bug tracker for it: If you're comfortable with debugging tools, then use GDB to get a backtrace of the segfault and include that in the issue.

I'm not familiar with GDB. Could you give me a few pointers on how this can be achieved?
