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.
+
 
+
== Anonymous SVN ==
+
 
+
Using anonymous SVN is simple:
+
 
+
First, install the subversion (svn) binary if it isn't already on your computer. Your operating system should have a package for it. Alternatively you can download and compile it yourself via the [http://subversion.tigris.org/project_packages.html svn project download page]. Please read the [[Getting_Started/Sources/Using_Subversion_with_KDE|KDE Subversion tutorial]] if you are interested in how to use Subversion.
+
 
+
'''/home/kde/trunk/''' (often refered to as '''trunk''', for short) is where the Qt4-based KDE 4 is being developed. The following is the minimal set of modules you will need to check out to build KDE and KDE software:
+
     
+
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.}}
+
 
+
{{tip|Currently, Monday is the day when major changes are allowed to the '''kdelibs''' module in '''trunk'''. Due to this, you may want to avoid updating your sources on Monday unless you are working on '''kdelibs''' as there may be temporary breakages throughout the day.}}
+
 
+
'''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 and is therefore recommended for those working with KDE from '''trunk'''. You can obtain '''qt-copy''' by doing:
+
 
+
  svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/qt-copy
+
 
+
If you wish to have a complete 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
+
 
+
So, 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 want to track KDE 3 rather than the bleeding edge, you may retrieve the KDE 3.5 sources 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/
+
 
+
KDE modules are also tagged at each release so that it is possible to get a specific 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 (only needed for KDE 2 and KDE 3) has a different format of tag name, '''tags/arts/X.Y.Z'''. For instance to get kdelibs as it was shipped in KDE 3.5.0, do:
+
 
+
svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/tags/KDE/3.5.0/kdelibs/
+
 
+
If you then want to update this checkout to KDE 3.5.5, use this command:
+
 
+
svn switch svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/tags/KDE/3.5.5/kdelibs
+
 
+
{{tip|If you used a '''/branch/''' or '''/trunk/''' path, then there is no need to switch, just run '''svn update'''.}}
+
 
+
{{tip|[http://websvn.kde.org/tags/ WebSVN] is a convenient way to check for a tag name.}}
+
 
+
If you are looking for translations and other localizations, 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 entire l10n module.}}
+
 
+
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>.
