Hi, I previously installed ROS fuerte onto ubuntu 12 and 10.04 with out problems. Now, I have this trouble installing ros fuerte onto ubuntu 11.10 oneiric. I have test with 2 different computers and I have tried full, desktop and base installation. any sugestions?

Package ros-fuerte-ros-comm is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'ros-fuerte-ros-comm' has no installation candidate

What's the content of /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ros-latest.list?

Ok. It seems like the debians are really missing for Oneiric i386 (64bit seems to be available btw.). I hope Willow can resolve that soon. As a temporary solution, you can use the shadow-fixed repository instead of the normal debian repository. Just replace the content of /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ros-latest.list with the following:

deb oneiric main

Note that the repository contains the debian packages that go into the next official update. There is a certain chance that updates break so you should switch back to the actual repository as soon as it contains the packages again.
