### Groovy Installation from Source on openSUSE

There used to be instructions on how to install ROS Groovy by downloading and compiling the source, and I previously used them to install Groovy on my machine. In trying to debug a problem, my configuration got so muddled that I decided it would be easier to re-install. However, it seems that the openSUSE instructions are now gone and the custom instructions that I put together fail on this step:

abouchard@linux-z28r:~/catkin_ws> wstool init -j8 src http://packages.ros.org/web/rosinstall/generate/raw/groovy/desktop-full
Using initial elements from: http://packages.ros.org/web/rosinstall/generate/raw/groovy/desktop-full

abouchard@linux-z28r:~/catkin_ws> rosinstall_generator desktop-full --rosdistro groovy --deps --wet-only > groovy-desktop-full-wet.rosinstall
