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: 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 Subversion binary. Your operating system should have a package for it. Alternatively you can download and compile it yourself via the SVN download page. Please read the [[Development/Tutorials/Using_Subversion_with_KDE|KDE Subversion tutorial]] if you are interested in how to use Subversion.
+
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 the minimal set of modules you will need to check out:
+
     
+
svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/KDE/kdelibs
+
svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/KDE/kdebase
+
 
+
{{tip|Only use "'''svn co'''" for the initial checkout, after which update your local sources afterwards by using "'''svn up''' ''modulename''".}}
+
 
+
{{tip|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. 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 also contains additional patches that fix bugs or add enhancements KDE makes use of. You can obtain qt-copy by doing:
+
 
+
svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/qt-copy
+
 
+
* 4. trunk is where KDE 4, which is based on Qt 4, is being developed. If you want to track the KDE 3 tree, check out KDE 3.5, using:
+
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/
+
 
+
* 5. 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 3.5's kdelibs, use:
+
 
+
svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/tags/KDE/3.5.0/kdelibs/
+
 
+
If you then want to update to KDE 3.5.5, use this command:
+
 
+
svn switch svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/tags/KDE/3.5.5/kdelibs
+
 
+
If you used a '''/branch/''' or '''/trunk/''' path, then there is no need to switch, just run '''svn update'''.
+
 
+
* 5. If you want to have a full copy of the KDE distribution, you can simply check out the entire source tree with one command:
+
 
+
svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/KDE 
+
 
+
If you want additional software packages you can check out the following modules within '''trunk/''' as well:
+
 
+
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
+
 
+
* 6. If you're looking for the internationalisation, check out the l10n module. {{Warning|The l10n module is extremely large. Be sure you have lots of time and disk space on hand before checking out the entire l10n module. Most people only check out specific language subdirectories rather than the whole modules.}}
+
 
+
* 8. You are now ready to start building KDE! Visit [[Getting_Started/Build/Unstable_Version this page]] for instructions on building trunk or [[Getting_Started/Build/Stable_Version this page]] for instruction on compiling the last stable release.
+
 
+
'''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>.
