Hi, I'm trying to recover a PR2 in my research lab. It hasn't seen a lot of use in the past few years. I am having issues with the basestation regarding the network manager no longer being valid and I'm trying to find the recover ISO (v0.6.0>); it was last upgrade to Ubuntu precise running diamondback according to records and I don't want to mess with the configurations without a recovery option. As it stands the base station can't communicate with the network. I have tried using CloneZilla to make a copy of present state but it runs into bitmap errors.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions on recovery.

@fergs seems like someone with some experience getting old "forgotten" robots to work again, perhaps he has an idea.

I don't know if there was ever an ISO image for the PR2 or basestation - I think we might have just installed regular old Ubuntu (probably server edition) and then installed a bunch of custom debians. I'm not sure where those debians might be hosted today - but the sources are here: That whole organization has a bunch of deb sources for the robot as well.
