2011-03-10 04:54:32 -0500 marked best answer ROS Packages vs. Linux Packages

ROS packages are not related to standard linux packages such as RPMs and debian packages.

ROS packages are described on the wiki at http://www.ros.org/wiki/Packages

On Ubuntu you can install debian packages of ROS stacks which contain ROS packages.

2011-03-05 14:24:56 -0500 asked a question ROS Packages vs. Linux Packages

In general, how do ROS packages differ from Linux packages? Can I expect to use them to install libraries and other software, in the way I expect RPM and DEB packages to manage software installation in Linux? I would like to update the wiki pages to make any distinctions clearer to those coming from Ubuntu backgrounds. Thanks, friends!
