For the Openni Drivers, the website just says I should run "sudo ./install.sh" and it should install. It doesn't seem to do anything...? I can't test any of the samples since I have a Beaglebone which can't be hooked up to a monitor. Do you know of another way I can test it?
Also when I try to install the Kinect drivers, I get the error:
I'll answer some of my own questions. I'm pretty positive the BeagleBone cannot
work with the Kinect. I had also tried OpenKinect on the BeagleBone and
those failed as well. One of the examples had an error relating to USB
bandwidth. I installed the OpenNI drivers and Open Kinect on the
BeagleBoard and the test examples for the Kinect work perfectly on it.
Does anyone know if PCL can be installed on an ARM device?
I had used this and it worked perfectly on the BeagleBoard. This is just to add more links in case someone is interested in replicating any of this.
Thanks for that link blackibiza! The post indicates that it is possible to get openni_launch stuff and possibly PCL through ROS on an ARM processor but it doesn't say how. Every time I've tried to install PCL through ROS from source I get errors about running out of virtual memory when I compile the pcl stuff and sometimes even for it's dependencies like flann....
I'm just interested in getting to the point where I can run "roslaunch openni_launch openni.launch" and the BeagleBoard/Gumstix/ARM device publishes the data from the Kinect.
As I mentioned in the posts above, all of the errors went away as soon as I started using a BeagleBoard instead of the BeagleBone so I'm assuming the Kinect cannot work with the BeagleBone. I'm sure there are ways around the usb bandwidth issue but I don't know much about hardware to look into it.

Hey I was wondering if you ever got the kinect to work on your beaglebone. I am using a beaglebone black A5B and I am getting the same errors. Thanks in advanced!
