The minimal Ubuntu and ROS installation takes up to 2 GB of space. So for the ROS installation, I had to mount 2GB SD card as a cache for apt archives. After that there is something line 25 MB left.

It is necessary to configure both machines (master and Toradex) to recognise each others hostnames, i.e. add Toradex to master's hosts file and master to Toradex's hosts file.

After proper configuration the Xtion works properly with USB hub with external power supply and also connected directly into Toradex. The message frequency is 15 Hz, 20 Hz and 30 Hz for RGB, depth and IR image respectively. The normal frequency should be 30 Hz for all topics.
