Hello!

I'm a newb with Linux and especially with ROS.

I doing a project to control iRobot Roomba with Raspberry Pi 2. I'm trying to install ROS fuerte and I'm following these guides: guide1 guide2

All goes well until I have to I have to install core libraries. Doesn't matter if I try the ROS-Full or ROS-Base, I get connection timeouts. Could it be that the link in the guide isn't up-to-date?

Are you behind a (corporate) firewall and / or proxy server? The errors tell you that connections to Github are timing out, but actual issues with their infrastructure are rather rare. Try changing all git:// urls in the .rosinstall to http:// (leave the rest). See if that works.

Thanks to gvdhoorn, I had to change git:// to http:// in .rosinstall

So just for future readers: are you behind a proxy and / or firewall?

Sorry forgot to mention it. This is college network, I believe it's behind a firewall.

Also: if at all possible, I wouldn't use such an old ROS distribution anymore. Fuerte is now almost 4 releases old, and has been EOL for a long time.
