Eigen changed from a ROS depend to a rosdep system dependency between Diamondback and Fuerte.

joq's link works well in resolving dependency issues, but it should also be noted that Eigen was upgraded to version 3, which is in most cases not compatible with Eigen 2.

I'm still struggling getting the Eigen->TF conversion to work with the TurtleBot_Arm packages with Eigen 3. I keep getting "error: conversion from ‘tf::Quaternion’ to non-scalar type ‘btQuaternion’ requested"
