I was trying to install vision_opencv from here:

on my BeagleBoard xM running Oneiric.

Each time i perform

rosdep install vision_opencv

I get an error saying: unable to find ros-fuerte-opencv2. I checked the Makefile and it says to look for ros-fuerte-opencv2 in the apt-repository, but since we don't really have a ros repository for BeagleBoard and the installation has to be done from source, i dont really know how to install this package.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

The source installation is the only way to install something on an ARM Platform but after a while is pretty straightforward:

first checkout the source code

$ svn checkout

then create a build dir and go into it

$ mkdir build && cd build

then make it with cmake

$ cmake ..

then make and install

$ make
$ sudo make install

hope I could help.
