DRCsim-1.3.1 seems not to work with tutorials

I just patched to DRCsim-1.3.1, but now when I load up the environment different things happen, all of them bad. When I just run atlasutils atlas.launch, the robot loads but falls down, saying lleguhz was not calibrated, and that it's missing drc vehicle and firehosemodel. When I run atlasutils atlaspositioncontrollers, I get all kinds of controller initialization errors, and again it's missing the vehicle and fire hose. Not sure what changed, the directory names sure didn't change with the update.

The errors about missing the firehose and vehicle models can be ignored. There's a pull request pending that downgrades them to info messages.

As for the robot falling down; not sure what's going on there. There's a chance that you're experiencing an ABI-breaking change in the other direction (newly compiled drcsim with older ROS packages). I would try getting a fresh install of ROS:

sudo apt-get remove ros-fuerte-*
sudo apt-get install drcsim
