I am using Fuerte with an old version of Gazebo. Only now I want to check out MoveIt with Groovy. But I can't even get the standard tutorials running.. If I do for instance roslaunch gazebo_worlds empty_world.launch

Also all the tutorials on Gazebosim are different, there is for instance not explained how I can spawn a robot using roslaunch. This is still possible right? Would it help to reinstall groovy? Or would I still get deprecated sdf files? What is the best approach to get a version of gazebo that works with ROS? (in which I can interact with motor commands, camera's and stuff?)
