Reason: please use the first argument of the template to provide a brief explanation. (Discuss in Talk:ROS#)
Note: Python3 and gcc46 is not supported in ros yet, might be best to wait for a update.

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 cmake wget python-yaml svn boost python-yaml pil python-numpy python2-yaml python2-pip python2-distribute python2
yaourt -S log4cxx pysvn-py2
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.


If package fails to build. You can apply this patch.
