Openni drivers installation errors

I followed wiki page to install the openni drivers and encountered following errors when i tried to resolve them. After downloading the drivers from the mentioned link (mercurial: hg clone I tried to make debian (I am on maverick and using diamondpack version of ROS).

    dpkg-deb: building package `openni-dev' in `ros-openni-dev-'.
cd ps_engine && make
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/aravindhan/drivers_27_sep_2011/ps_engine'
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `fix-mac-arch', needed by `patched'.  Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/aravindhan/drivers_27_sep_2011/ps_engine'
make: *** [ps_engine_lib] Error 2

I realised the problem with Makefile in the ps-engine and checked the contents and found fix-mac-arch file missing in the folder. I am not sure about this patching concept so i searched for the same in the drivers folder and found it in /drivers/openni folder. Just in order to check if things might work, i copied the file into the /drivers/ps-engine folder and tried to make the debian and got the below error.

make[1]: Entering directory `/home/aravindhan/drivers_27_sep_2011/ps_engine'
cd build/ps_engine && git reset --hard

I am pretty sure its the fix-mac-arch file that is missing in ps-engine and patching problem is due to the wrong path in the same file. Did someone else face the same issue? Pls let me know if any archives are available for the same.

Thanks in advance, Karthik

I was having the same trouble on Fedora 15. It seems to me that the problem was introduced here, 3 days ago.

I actually removed the dependence, since from the description of the change, it is a patch for macs.

DId you just remove the fix-mac-arch from the Makefile?

But when i launch the openni_node.launch file as mentioned in wiki page, I am getting the status as below. "[ INFO] [1317931305.580038907]: [/openni_node1] No devices connected.... waiting for devices to be connected" .
