the gazebo installation guide on [] tells ROS users to "Only install Gazebo from [their site]" because "Documentation on for Gazebo is old and not actively maintained". Also ROS' gazebo module seems to be severely outdated and I have a lot of trouble compiling it with a current boost library(1.53), whereas the official release 1.7.1 works (rather) fine.

Is there an easy way to run ROS groovy with this standalone release without too much problems? I tried to do that by commenting all gazebo <depends /> lines in various manifest.xml files and instead adding pkg_check_module lines for the external gazebo. However, I got stuck with a number of scripts relying on groovy's gazebo module and e.g. spawn_model..
