I am trying to install Ros Electric with the ros-full layer only on a Raspbian Wheezy distribution ( on a Raspberry Pi ).

Rigorously following the steps from here is what I get:

pi@raspberrypi ~ $ rosinstall ~/ros ""
rosinstall operating on /home/pi/ros from specifications in rosinstall files

(Over-)Writing /home/pi/ros/.rosinstall
(Over-)Writing, setup.bash, and setup.zsh in /home/pi/ros
ERROR in rosinstall:
No 'ros' stack detected in candidates [].
Please add the location of a ros distribution to this command.


It seems that the file pointed by the url is empty. I am pretty sure I am just missing something, but can't figure out what.

Hope someone can help me with this.

PerkinsJames: thank you, but this does not help. The issue is that the address points to an empty file. ( as of 07/26/12 )
