Is there something wrong with the servers? When I run a rosinstall, the servers have an error processing the downloads for specific modules. Is there another servers that is replicated with the latest version of ROS that I can try in the meantime?

Example of error:

Error processing 'documentation' : [documentation] Checkout of version None into /Users/my_user_name/ros/documentation failed.

Can you provide more info? Did you follow the instructions? What version of OSX? Please provide the commands and whole error.

Hi, I followed the instructions on the ROS website using the MacPorts installation instructions. I got past the pre-install and now, due to the exceptions, I cannot get past the installation instructions.

Basically, I did the rosinstall command for the entire library of modules for ROS. My OS is 10.7 (Lion).

Sorry ... I use the homebrew instructions and there aren't any issues with installing that way. In fact I just did an install about a week ago and it went smoothly.

Hi, I even removed macports and fink. I then went along with the instructions for homebrew and the installation for mercurial doesn't work with pip...What am I doing wrong. Here is the link to the instructions...

Please post the command and the exact error you are getting. I just did a test install using rosinstall ~/ros "" and it worked no problem. I can only assume you skipped something.
