I have a school project, in which we are creating Openstack enviroment with Raspberry Pi's. So far everything has gone smoothly, but we have hit a wall with nova-compute. So only our compute-nodes are Pi's with Raspbian OS and only OpenStack packets that are available from repository are from 2012 (our control/network-node uses icehouse).

Now I tried to install the compute-sevice by downloading sourve from git and running script. Now everything seemed to work but for some reason nova-compute service is not regonized. Now does the git source for nova only contain the packets for controll-node, Or have I done something wrong? This is my first try with Openstack and my Linux experience is rather limited, but i don't see where i have gone wrong.

This is quite a challenging task for someone with little Linux experience. In any case, you should look at the answers on before you go further.

Yes I'm aware of that questions and the problems posed there. To my knowledge Openstack has been succesfully run in Rasperry Pi's, The main problem is, that based on the guides we are using (the debian wheezy) we should install openstack-compute-lxc package on the compute node, now it seems isntalling nova from source does not contain this. I might have understated my experience in linux, I meant I haven't got a lot experience with installing from source.
