My team (robotics society of UC Merced) is working on an entry for Robomagellan at RoboGames (yeah its in two weeks I know).  I've used ROS for awhile now and honestly, its awesome.  We chose to use the Beagleboard-xM on our robot and, naturally, I want to install ROS on it.  Problem is, as far as I know, there is still the bug in the Ubuntu kernel which slows the CPU on the xM way down.  We chose to stick with Angstrom, and use OpenEmbedded to build the toolchain for it (installing it right now actually).  So my question is, whats they best way to run ROS on Angstrom, specifically, I want to write the source code on the development box, compile it, and then deploy it without sources onto the Beagleboard-xM.  Is that something that has been developed yet?
