I'm trying to get a simulated youBot running in Gazebo. When running rosmake on the line

rosmake youbot_description

I get a failure. The failure states

[rosmake-7] Finished <<< youbot_description [FAIL] [ 2.11 seconds ]
[ rosmake ] Halting due to failure in package youbot_description. [ rosmake ] Waiting for other threads to complete. [ rosmake ] Results:
[ rosmake ] Built 41 packages with 1 failures.
[ rosmake ] Summary output to directory
[ rosmake ] /home/ros-root/.ros/rosmake/rosmake_output-20121213-115221

I downloaded using the apt-get commands from this page:

But I did substitute to use ros-fuerte-pr2-controllers and ros-fuerte-pr2-simulator as I am running fuerte.

I can post the log file if needed but here's the portion that seems to be relevant:

[ 50%] Building CXX object CMakeFiles/cartesian_compliance_control_test.dir/examples/cartesian_compliance_control_test.o /home/ros-root/fuerte_workspace/sandbox/ros_stacks/youbot-ros-pkg/youbot_common/youbot_description/examples/cartesian_compliance_control_test.cpp: In function ‘void publishTf()’: /home/ros-root/fuerte_workspace/sandbox/ros_stacks/youbot-ros-pkg/youbot_common/youbot_description/examples/cartesian_compliance_control_test.cpp:66:67: error: invalid initialization of reference of type ‘tf::Quaternion&’ from expression of type ‘btQuaternion’ /opt/ros/fuerte/stacks/geometry/tf/include/tf/transform_datatypes.h:105:20: error: in passing argument 2 of ‘void tf::quaternionMsgToTF(const Quaternion&, tf::Quaternion&)’ make[3]: [CMakeFiles/cartesian_compliance_control_test.dir/examples/cartesian_compliance_control_test.o] Error 1 make[3]: Leaving directory /home/ros-root/fuerte_workspace/sandbox/ros_stacks/youbot-ros-pkg/youbot_common/youbot_description/build' make[2]: *** [CMakeFiles/cartesian_compliance_control_test.dir/all] Error 2 make[2]: Leaving directory/home/ros-root/fuerte_workspace/sandbox/ros_stacks/youbot-ros-pkg/youbot_common/youbot_description/build' make[1]: [all] Error 2 make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/ros-root/fuerte_workspace/sandbox/ros_stacks/youbot-ros-pkg/youbot_common/youbot_description/build' make: ** [all] Error 2*

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.

Switching rosdistros does not necessarily compile. You need to fix the bullet compile issues. It's documented in the release notes

Please don't ask unrelated questions as an answer. This is a Q&A site and things are specifically threaded to be Questions and Answers for easy finding of answers. The answer is that it's a tutorial how to setup RMS, which happens to use gazebo. As opposed to a tutorial about gazebo.

I'm sorry that it wasn't obvious that it was a rhetorical question. I will mark comments as such in the future.
