I was trying to open the turtlebot in an empty world and this error appears. Can any one help in understanding this error.

[gazebo-2] process has died [pid 5985, exit code 255, cmd /opt/ros/kinetic/lib/gazebo_ros/gzserver -e ode worlds/ __name:=gazebo __log:=/home/yash/.ros/log/9f33f34c-5c41-11e9-8ae3-480fcf35e6f2/gazebo-2.log].log file: /home/yash/.ros/log/9f33f34c-5c41-11e9-8ae3-480fcf35e6f2/gazebo-2*.log

That error doesn't give much information about what could have happened. Could you update your question with the details of what you have installed and what you tried to run? Also check that log file for errors.

This error occurred while I was trying to launch the turtlebot and the world using same launch file. Then I launched them separately using 2 launch files from two terminals. Surprisingly, I never faced this problem again even when I club all the launch files into a single launch file. I couldn't figure out why all this happened, but everything is working fine now.
