Hi! I have a small robot build on friendly arm mini2440 which have Wireless LAN.Now I want to build some driver nodes on it so that it can communicate with roscore. And send some sensor data use some topics.And controlled by provide some services. Now, I am using my nodes on PC to communicate with the robot using TCP,and then get data and control robot. Can't I just build this nodes using ROS on my Ubuntu12.04, or I should cross compile the whole ROS using the cross compile tool chain, and then cross my nodes.

If the friendly arm supports Ubuntu, you should be able to compile and run ROS nodes on it.

I suggest you start with the debs for Ubuntu ARM:
