Hello, I know this question have been asked before here 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?

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.
