I just installed ROS Fuerte using the debian pkgs (desktop-full install) on a Ubuntu Precise (64 bit). I tried to install some packages that check the version of ROS installed. (using roslib.stacks.get_stack_version('ros')) But rosversion ros returns <unversioned> and not 1.8.7, which is present in the /opt/ros/fuerte/share/ros/stack.yaml file. rosversion -d returns fuerte correctly. My ROS_PACKAGE_PATH is set correctly.

Any idea how to fix the problem or what is causing this?

Thank you all! Nick

This is a bug in the current fuerte debian packages. It's been "fixed" but hasn't rolled out yet for some reason.
