Hi all,
I'm trying to install cturtle on several Ubuntu 10.04 machines from svn with the following command in the home-directory:
./rosinstall ros_cturtle http://ros.org/rosinstalls/cturtle_base.rosinstall <http://ros.org/rosinstalls/cturtle_base.rosinstall> 

During checkout, rosinstall gets stuck. This happens at different positions, e.g. one time somwhere while checking out https://code.ros.org/svn/ros/stacks/ros/tags/cturtle <https://code.ros.org/svn/ros/stacks/ros/tags/cturtle>  and when I tried it again, it was at the beginning of https://code.ros.org/svn/ros-pkg/stacks/camera_drivers/tags/cturtle <https://code.ros.org/svn/ros-pkg/stacks/camera_drivers/tags/cturtle>  .
When I cancel the installation by ctrl-c, I get:
ERROR: Failed to install tree 'stacks/camera_drivers' using command:
 svn co  https://code.ros.org/svn/ros-pkg/stacks/camera_drivers/tags/cturtle <https://code.ros.org/svn/ros-pkg/stacks/camera_drivers/tags/cturtle>  /home/markus/ros/ros_cturtle/stacks/camera_drivers
Perhaps there is another installation in the way, or there are permissions issues.

I let ros create the installation folder, so I don't think there is an installation in the way. I just downloaded the latest rosinstall. 
Checking out the repositories manually works perfectly, so I don't think there are networking issues.
Any ideas what's going wrong?
Thanks for your help!
Best, Markus
