I am just trying to launch a file using roslaunch rtklib.launch but it constantly says that process has died. I have spent a lot of time fixing this problem but I cannot. Also everything was working fine yesterday but when I try to launch it now, it does not work. The error is as follows

started roslaunch server http://malik:34688/

I have already tried netstat -ltpn inorder to check there is no other ros program running. Any help would be appreciated.

I am gonna answer it, just in case somebody encounters a similar error. I got this error fixed. I checked my log files and I was able to detect the error. I was accessing data in my code which I had not initialized which lead to my program crashing.

Awesome! This error was driving me nuts! However it seems to only occur when launching the process with a launch file. Launching it "manually" prevented the error from happening...
