Hey guys,

I'm following the ROS Tutorials and, using the Python language, I'm currently having some issues trying to solve the item Examining the Simple Service and Client item (www.ros .org/wiki/ROS/Tutorials/ExaminingServiceClient">link text).

When I try to run the server (the first step in the tutorial), I get the following message:

viki@ROS:~/catkin_ws/src$ rosrun beginner_tutorials add_two_ints_server.py
Unable to register with master node [http :// localhost:11311]: master may not be running yet. Will keep trying.

And then my Terminal window gets blocked. Before that, when I compiled the code (from the previous tutorial: <link>http :// www.ros .org/wiki/ROS/Tutorials/WritingServiceClient%28python%29</link>) everything seems to work fine:

viki@ROS:~/catkin_ws$ catkin_make

When I try roswtf I get no error:

viki@ROS:~/catkin_ws$ roswtf
No package or stack in context
================================================================================ Static checks summary:

No errors or warnings
================================================================================

ROS Master does not appear to be
running. Online graph checks will not
be run. ROS_MASTER_URI is
[http :// localhost:11311]

I haven't found any clues on the web related to this and I can't figure it out what's really happening.

Can anyone help me? Thanks in advance,

Batta

Either I didn't see it or you forgot to mention; you started roscore right? http://www.ros.org/wiki/roscore

Ok. I had some problems trying to send the question via virtual machine (I'm running Linux in Virtual Box), and I tried many times, but the question could not be posted. Next time I'll try it only with my Mac.
