Gazebo ros crashes with exit code 255


Hi there,
I would like to use gazebo inside docker.
But gazebo (gzserver) always exists with exit code 255.
There are no hints about what might possibly go wrong.

Feel free to reproduce the error using this repository:

Thank you very much for your help in advance!


I made a small pull request to let gazebo’s verbose mode be set from a roslaunch command-line invocation by adding verbose:=true:

Can you post the console output that you see when running in verbose mode?


Huge thanks!
The issue was, that I forgot to close the gazebo on the host.
The error was:
[Err] [] EXCEPTION: Unable to start server[bind: Address already in use]. There is probably another Gazebo process running.
