Reason: please use the first argument of the template to provide a brief explanation. (Discuss in Talk:Ros#)

Originally from the ROS wiki. ROS is an open-source, meta-operating system for your robot. It provides the services you would expect from an operating system, including hardware abstraction, low-level device control, implementation of commonly-used functionality, message-passing between processes, and package management.


Get dependencies, and create alternate python dir to workaround shebang line in scripts that point to python3. Thanks to DavidS. Symlink to, not an ideal solution, but it works. Then install rosinstall, and ros.

pacman -S python2 cmake wget python-yaml svn python2-distribute boost python-yaml pil python-numpy
yaourt -S log4cxx
mkdir /usr/local/bin/alt   
ln -s /usr/bin/python2 /usr/local/bin/alt/python
export PATH=/usr/local/bin/alt:$PATH
ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/ 
sudo easy_install-2.7 -U rosinstall
rosinstall ~/ros ""

Follow the ROS wiki afterwards.
