I'm just getting started with a new youbot. I followed the manual instructions and built a few ros programs. When I try to run them I notice a few problems. Below is a log of the output and error messages I'm getting right now:

youbot@kukaros1:~/applications/hello_world_demo$ sudo ./youBot_HelloWorldDemo
Info: Initializing EtherCAT on eth0 with communication thread
Info: 5 EtherCAT slaves found
Info: BaseLeftFront      Controller Type: 1610  Firmware version: 148
Warning: The youBot base motor controller have to be of type: 174 or 1632
Warning: The ethercat slave number is not available!
Info: Done.

A quick scan of the youbot website didn't turn up any firmware images. Any ideas of how to resolve this issue?

I also don't get anywhere unless the arm is plugged in to eth0 and that seems weird to me. Any pointers welcome

We hound that usb key derievered from Kuka would not function. As a workaround, following the set of instuctions here we were able to run diagnostics and do keyboard control:

I'll be interested in a similar process which works for Groovy.
