Is there a new or updated rosinstall file for installing Fuerte from source?

From the wiki:

It pulls down the rosinstall from:

In this file it pulls down the repos from:

The files in that repo no longer exist as they have been moved to this repo I believe:

Now that the files have been moved, I am not sure about the correct versions I am suppose to pull down as they are not the same.

Does anyone have an updated rosinstall to install the Full version of ROS source for Fuerte?

Thank you

Use a rosinstall file at

You can change the arguments in the URL to get what you need. The instructions in the wiki probably need to be updated.

EDIT: The above only works for overlays of core packages, the url is not suitable for source-installs.

Someone should update the wiki. I have a feeling many other people are going to run into the same problems. They probably should just update the file at

I modified the file by hand for ros-base and used with rosinstall --catkin ~/ros-underlay file:///home/rosuser/fuerte-ros-base.rosinstall

I can't post file because my karma is insufficient :(

The solution with the modified *.rosinstall file worked for me as well. So I decided to make a little repository.

The fuerte-ros-base.rosinstall is equal to the file from "enodiesop". The fuerte-ros-full.rosinstall also includes the rx toolset but no tutorials.



change ++ to tt because my karma is to bad :)
