Confusion Regarding Gazebo 4 and ROS Installation

I have been trying to install Gazebo 4 along with ROS Indigo in the following method: 1. Install ros-indigo-desktop-full 2. Run sudo apt-get remove gazebo-* (I realized that it also removes ROS) 3. Following along the source installation instructions for Gazebo 4 on this page (http://gazebosim.org/tutorials?tut=install), which resulted in a problem related to this question (http://answers.gazebosim.org/question/7224/gazebo-4-installation-fails-on-make-j4/)

Is there something I'm doing wrong? An answer I got from a different question here (http://answers.gazebosim.org/question/7008/gazebo-4-installation-help/) yielded a different way to install Gazebo 4 along side ROS Indigo. Am I supposed to just do a desktop install and not a full install? Or would the Gazebo 4 packages automatically override the Gazebo 2 ones that came with Indigo?
