Well, I tried my hand at updating the wiki and posted the PDFs of the fuerte
install to http://www.ros.org/wiki/Robots/TurtleBot/Robot%20Setup. I
apologize in advance for being wordy.


Hopefully I didn't gum things up too much.

Hi Bill -


Thanks for the great contribution. It would be great if you could link these
off the TurtleBot installation/upgrade page on the ROS wiki so that others
could find this documentation more easily.

Also, I apparently can't spell "turtlebot" consistently. Sheesh..

Attached are some rough notes I made about a clean install of Fuerte on a
Turtlebot and a developer workstation. I am using a turtlebot with the
Lenovo x130e laptop so this is specific to that setup.

I apologize in advance for not attributing the information correctly, as
most of it was pulled from ROS.org or it's peers (answers.ros.org, etc.)
during my installation and testing. This is still in rough draft form but I
wanted to get it out there to see if it was helpful or not. I intend a more
complete draft with proper attribution in the near future.

I can say from my little experience with ROS and the turtlebot that fuerte
is easier to set up and rviz is leaps and bounds above what it was in
electric. Well, at least for me. :)

Thanks in advance for taking a look at this.
