Hello, I know this question have been asked before here http://answers.ros.org/question/10660/what-happened-if-i-install-two-version-of-ros/ but, given it was almost 2 years ago, I just wanted to make sure if is still valid. When installing ROS Fuerte and Groovy in the same machine will show any conflicts? Other than source my setup.bash should I have to have something else in consideration?

Thanks.

If you do not mix up the environment setup, this should work without any problems. It's also possible to start some nodes in a fuerte environment and others in a groovy environment and have them communicate. We actually did that in routinely for our entry in the Virtual Robotics challenge, starting the Gazebo based Atlas robot simulation in a fuerte environment and running all our software in a groovy environment.
