Ok, for what I understand ROS Fuerte has version 2.3.1, I was looking at version 2.4.0 ... But how can I implement that function, or how can I update my OpenCV version from Fuerte ... I have installed OpenCV 2.4.0 in Ubuntu 11.10 but my system uses OpenCV from Fuerte by default

You can't easily switch it. If you want to you need to check everything that builds on top of it out from source.
