Mac OS X
Some distributions come with the Subversion packages by default, or they may have already been installed by your system administrator. Verify whether you have Subversion installed using `which`
user@compy$ which svn /usr/bin/svn user@compy$
In the above example, Subversion is installed and its executable is located within
user@compy$ which svn user@compy$
On the other hand, in the above example,
which svn returns nothing. This indicates Subversion is not likely installed. You or your system administrator will need to use the appropriate package manager to download and install the packages for Subversion. For example, on Ubuntu, users would execute the following:
user@compy$ sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install subversion
Existing developer accounts should all continue to work as before. When working with the main trunk, basic operations such as checking out code, diff, and committing changes are very similar to those under CVS.
