Thanks for the image. I'm using this very successfully to run my RPi powered rover

File was corrupted when I extracted it with 7-zip. Any advice? I can try to gunzip it instead

Hi Martin, this isn't the appropriate way to advertise a contribution such as this, if you would like to use ros answers for this then you should ask a question and answer it yourself, for example see:

On another note, any time you are distributing a binary, you need to provide details like how you created the image and how someone else could reproduce it. While I'm certain that your intentions are pure, without some sort of signing it would be very easy for someone to advertise such an image which intentionally or unintentionally contains malicious software. By providing a way for others to reproduce it, you can get independent validation and build trust in your image.

More importantly, while a binary image is certainly useful, it would be good to have instructions on how to do this so that others can build on what you've done and improve the solution that way. It is very hard for someone to reproduce and iterate on a binary image. I would recommend you just detail the steps you used to create the image on a wiki page, similar to something like the UDOO instructions:

Thanks for the image has saved me a lot of time getting ROS up and running on my Pi.

I can confirm that the image does not boot in RPi2 but does on B+

Forgive my ineptitude, but I used 7-zip to extract the file, had to append .img to the file so that my image writer could use it. Raspberry Pi didn't even bring up a display... nothing... I know I'm doing something very dumb so please help. I'm trying to mount it from Windows.

Thank you!

Hello everyone, this image doesn't work on my Raspberry Pi 3. When I try to plug in microSD with this image installed by Win32DiskImager, my Monitor connected with HDMI just shows me palette.

Hi William, I do agree to the approach for writing questions in ROS Answers. The next time I will follow your hints.

The other thing is, that the Raspbian image is a image for writing a SD card with a Debian Armhf operating system for the Raspberry Pi (->Google). This is not a binary in this sense that I did generate or compile the system. What I did was to compiling ROS Indigo and some kernel drivers for the system. The ROS sources and a description to perform this compilation or any ROS package are "on board" in /home/pi. You can unpack the image to a 16GB sdcard using: sudo dd if=< place where my image is/image_name.img> of=/dev/sdd

sorry for that, but when i am booting raspbian with the image that i download from here it tell me to login. and when a enter a password appear "System is booting up. see pam_nologin(8)"

Yesterday i thougth that maybe could be because i upload wrong the image on my sd card. But today happen too.

hi, the image is working with my raspberry. May be the SD card is corrupted or the image was not downloaded correctly.

Is there something weird about the ethernet on this image? I run my pi headless, getting internet through my computer, and other images have grabbed IP addresses through my computer, but this one doesn't seem to be playing nicely. I can set it to a static IP, and it will take the IP and let me ssh in, but won't get internet. any ideas?

Hi, I didn't change anything, even ROS is compiled natively on the PI, so i had to wget the sources via internet. But you can have a look in /etc/network/interfaces.Another thing is, that I have the CAN bus running on PI. For my project I need both, CAN and ROS running on a PI 2.

I just want to tank you for this image as it seems to fit my needs very will right now. I'm a ROS n00b and have been having problems getting a stable ros image setup from the default wheezy image. I shall give it a spin tonight. Not sure what the significance of going for Jessie over Wheezy has especially since it is not yet released.
