# Revision history [back]

That github link and the package you install using apt-get are one and the same.

If you install something using apt-get, you don't need to build it with catkin_make anymore.

What would be the point of distributing binaries otherwise?

Edit:

Ahhhh I thought they were different because in the link the ROS version is indigo and mine is kinetic. Thx !!

The Kinetic version is released from the indigo-devel branch. See wiki/ardrone_autonomy.

If you ever do need to build a package from source, what you did is not the way to go about it. See #q252478 for a general description of the process.
