Hi all

I am getting a strange error while spawning gazebo model in ROS Indigo. I am using Ubuntu 14.04.2 , 64 bit. After a recent update of ROS Indigo, i am getting this error while spawning in Gazebo model. I have tried with RRbot and some other robot in which gazebo spawning working properly.I have setup the same environment in virtualbox and it is working good. Please give any suggestions. I hope its not the issue with URDF
