Is it possible to install ROS with build_isolated

Following the link, I've installed ROS from source successfully.

After executing the command ./src/catkin/bin/catkin_make_isolated --install -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release, I've found three folders created: build_isolated, devel_isolated and install_isolated.

I knew that what I need was install_isolated, but I don't know what build_isolated and devel_isolated are used for.

Can I use the build_isolated to install the ROS?

I mean, can I copy the build_isolated to another machine and install ROS with it?

I think the one you want is devel_isolated. Whether you perform binary or source installations, the setup scripts are always there, and when I build for an ARM machine the binaries are also there.

Also, if you check out @GummyBear 's excellent answer to this crosscompilation question, you'll see that he points to the devel_isolated folder too:
