A particular software (GRASS GIS) I need is available in two different versions - stable(6.4.0) and unstable(7.0). Stable one is available in Ubuntu repository while developmental one can be installed from SVN. My question is can I have both installed in same machine? Will it cause problems in operation? Later if I need to uninstall the SVN installed version how can I do it?
There should be no problem. The one from repository will be installed to default location. The one from SVN will need to be compiled, and then you can copy the binaries/other files to any location manually or using
