I want to install the win_ros packages in order to have a cross-compiling build environment for mingw programs. I was following the guide (in ) but I get this error:

/srv/ros$ rosinstall /srv/ros
rosinstall operating on /srv/ros from specifications in rosinstall files /srv/ros/.rosinstall,
ahhhhhhhh, yaml parse error: mapping values are not allowed here
in "<file>", line 46, column 28
Usage: rosinstall PATH [<options> ...] [URI]...

rosinstall: error: None

Are there any other requirement to use correctly this rosinstall command?

The problem is that the URL you are using is the HTML rendering of the rosinstall file. You have to use the raw file (there is a "view raw file" link on that page). Using the following line, it works:

rosinstall /srv/ros

Thanks for picking up the problem. Martin has the right of it. I've updated the wiki page to fix the problem.
