If you are using the debian packages, simply install the package instead of the metapackage:

sudo apt-get install ros-groovy-tf

This will only work for catkinized packages.

I may have found the issue with this process on a BeagleBone. Apparently there are problems with checking out debian packages onto this ARM device.

So how do we get individual "non-catkinized" packages for the ARM processor/BeagleB?

You download them from source and delete the rest.
