in my experience, you can use the binary builds from ros for Ubuntu 
precise also in trusty - yust to be sure that you have repos from Ubuntu 
precise in your sources.list for the right boost version etc. It can be 
that you have a little fun with apt, but in general it should work. I 
had even upgraded precise on which hydro is installed, to trusty with 
this trick without removing ros.

Best regards,
