I'm tring to run rviz out of a beaglebone with Hydro. I know the port is still ongoing due to missing lisp libraries, but is the rviz package affected?

I'm asking because in the rviz user guide page there is a command for getting it out of the apt repo and I can't find the package...

The Beableboard runs on an arm processor.

Rviz is likely too heavy to run on the Beaglebone.

Well that is a good solution too. But for the sake of the argument, why can't I find the rviz in the repo?

Mostly because it is too heavy to run on the beableboard, since it is useless to take time to do the port. Some tried: but i have no echo of a succesful build.
