Edit: I did a fresh install of Precise and Precise/Fuerte runs gazebo without error. However, Lucid/Fuerte still does not run properly.

Original: I have recently changed my system from Diamondback/Natty to Fuerte/Lucid. In order to do so, I did a fresh install of Lucid (Diamondback/Natty) and successfully downloaded ros-fuerte-desktop-full and ros-fuerte-pr2-simulator. I have also done rosmake pr2_gazebo and rosmake gazebo_worlds with no failures.

Here is my problem: On Fuerte/Lucid, when I launch gazebo (using roslaunch pr2_gazebo pr2_empty_world.launch), the window appears for maybe 4 seconds, then crashes, accompanied by the error message listed below.

Error [Transport.cc:102] Unable to get topic namespaces in [50] tries. Error [Node.cc:68] No namespace found terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::bad_alloc' what(): std::bad_alloc /opt/ros/fuerte/stacks/simulator_gazebo/gazebo/scripts/gui: line 2: 8292 Aborted rospack find gazebo/gazebo/bin/gzclient -g rospack find gazebo/lib/libgazebo_ros_paths_plugin.so [gazebo_gui-2] process has died [pid 8289, exit code 134, cmd /opt/ros/fuerte/stacks/simulator_gazebo/gazebo/scripts/gui __name:=gazebo_gui __log:=/home/rin/.ros/log/60d6655c-d062-11e1-b0c9-58b035ffc45e/gazebo_gui-2.log]. log file: /home/rin/.ros/log/60d6655c-d062-11e1-b0c9-58b035ffc45e/gazebo_gui-2*.log

My attempts at solution:

rin@sherlock:~$ roscd ~/.ros/log/60d6655c-d062-11e1-b0c9-58b035ffc45e/ roscd: No such package/stack '/home/rin/.ros/log/60d6655c-d062-11e1-b0c9-58b035ffc45e/'

However, I can get to /home/rin/.ros/log/60d6655c-d062-11e1-b0c9-58b035ffc45e/ manually. Furthermore, /home/rin/.ros/log/60d6655c-d062-11e1-b0c9-58b035ffc45e/gazebo_gui-2*.log doesn't exist.

I deleted the log files, (everything in /home/rin/.ros/log/) as recommended by my advisor, and this did not help.

In my previous configuration (Diamondback/Natty), I had no trouble launching and running gazebo, I only mention this because I don't think this error is a problem with my graphics card.

I searched through ROS answers, and to my understanding problems of this nature have not been answered. Please inform me if you need more information to solve this puzzle, I will gladly provide it. Thank you for your time.

I had a problem of RVIZ crashing on ubuntu 10.04 which worked fine previously. I changed to 12.04 and had no problems..
