For those of us that like to stay on the "bleeding edge" there's an easy way to keep a local copy of the KDE sources up-to-date. No more trying to log on to ftp.kde.org to get the latest snapshot. No more wandering aimlessly through mirrors looking for one that's up to date. Just a simple command line operation to get up-to-the-minute source updates. Just use anonymous SVN.

Using anonymous SVN is simple:
+
(Please do not delete before all the Links to this page (see the menu on the left) are correctly pointed to the new pages.)
  
* 1. Install the SVN binary. Your distribution should have one. Alternatively you can download and compile it yourself via SVN download page.
+
Much of this page is now obsolete and has been replaced with Git details in the new [[Getting_Started/Sources]] and [[Getting_Started/Build]] pages. The useful remaining subversion information has been merged into the main [[Getting_Started/Sources/Subversion]] page
* 2. The following is a minimal set of modules you need:
+
     
+
svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/KDE/kdelibs
+
svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/KDE/kdebase
+
 
+
'''NOTE''': Only use "'''co'''" for the initial checkout. please update your local sources afterwards by using "'''svn up''' ''modulename''".
+
 
+
'''NOTE''': If your firewall doesn't allow access to arbitrary ports, you want to substitute '''svn://anonsvn.kde.org/''' with '''svn://anonsvn.kde.org:443/''' above.
+
 
+
* 3. The various KDE modules have tags so it is possible to get a specifc release of KDE. Most KDE modules have a tag name in the format tags/KDE/X.Y.Z (where X, Y and Z represent the exact version). The arts module has a different format of tag name, tags/arts/X.Y.Z. [http://websvn.kde.org/tags/ WebSVN] is a convenient way to check for a tag name. For instance to get KDE 3.4's kdelibs, use:
+
svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/tags/KDE/3.4.0/kdelibs/
+
 
+
If you then want to update to KDE 3.4.1, use this command:
+
svn switch svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/tags/KDE/3.4.1/kdelibs
+
If you used a /branch/ or /trunk/ path, then there is no need to switch, just run svn update.
+
 
+
* 4. '''NOTE''': trunk is moving into the direction of KDE 4, which means it is based on Qt 4 and generally very few things work or compile at all. You're most likely interested in staying on the stable branch, which is KDE 3.5 currently. To check out KDE 3.5, use:
+
svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/branches/arts/1.5/arts
+
svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/branches/KDE/3.5/kdelibs
+
svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/branches/KDE/3.5/kdebase
+
...
+
 
+
* 5. If you want to have a full copy of the KDE distribution, you want to check out
+
svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/KDE 
+
If you want additional sources, you can check out the following modules instead of KDE:
+
koffice
+
extragear
+
kdenonbeta
+
playground
+
kdereview
+
 
+
For example if you want to check out koffice trunk, you can use
+
svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/koffice
+
If you're looking for the internationalisation, check out the l10n module (Warning: HUGE!).
+
 
+
* 6. Please read the [[Development/Tutorials/Using_Subversion_with_KDE|KDE Subversion tutorial]] if you're more interested in how to use Subversion.
+
 
+
* 7. qt-copy is a copy of the latest stable [http://www.trolltech.com Qt] release which works with KDE, put into SVN for convenience. It contains additional patches that fix bugs or add enhancement KDE can make optionally use of. Qt and KDE need to know where Qt is compiled, so do an export <code>QTDIR=/your/dir/to/qt-copy</code> (use the full path to the qt-copy you got in the previous step) and remember to do this again before you do configure in the next step.
+
 
+
After that use these options for configure (as stated in README.qt-copy) and then do a make.
+
 
+
* 8. To compile your new kde source tree simply <tt>cd</tt> into each directory and execute the following commands:
+
make -f Makefile.cvs
+
./configure
+
make
+
make install
+
 
+
'''Also of interest: '''
+
* anonsvn.kde.org is located in Tuebingen, Germany, maintained by [mailto:dirk@kde.org Dirk Mueller] However, a more local mirror could be faster for you than anonsvn.kde.org itself. Current mirrors are, sorted by performance:
+
** kde.mneisen.org is located near Nuernberg, Germany, maintained by [mailto:martin.eisenhardt@mneisen.org Martin Eisenhardt]
+
: Be careful when switching between mirrors. SVN remembers the server in the working copy, so to switch you have to run
+
svn switch --relocate svn://anonsvn.kde.org/ svn://kde.mneisen.org/
+
: in all your checkouts.
+
* For a script that updates via SVN and compiles KDE automatically, see <tt>kdesdk/scripts/kde-build</tt>.
