Subject: [ros-users] ROS Wiki: Installation instructions bug
Hi all,

I just tried installing from svn as per the ROS instructions page here:


Running this command:

rosinstall ~/ros

Resulted in the following error

ERROR: woah, unknown installation method hg not installed, cannnot
create a hg vcs client

I installed bzr and mercurial, and that fixed the error (I assume it
was just mercurial that was causing the problem). It seems that the
"Setup" stage of the wiki page (and the pages for all other distros)
need to be updated to include that.
