Note: This step is only for those who want the bleeding-edge source code to compile on their own. You can skip this if you intend to use a provided binary executable.
Note: If your distribution is not listed below and you are familiar with how to install Subversion on it, please add that information to this section.

Subversion (SVN) is a version control system used to manage changes to documents, such as source files. Developers use Subversion so they can easily coordinate their code changes with those of other developers through a SVN repository.

Be aware that when you use a copy of fs2_open from Subversion, you are using the most recent revision of the fs2_open code. The newest code might have new features and bug fixes, but it might also be less stable, perform worse, or might not even compile.

You will need a Subversion client to download ("check out" in SVN terminology) a copy of fs2_open from the Source Code Project's SVN repository. The instructions for getting a client are specific to each Linux distribution.

Debian, Ubuntu, and Linux Mint users should run:

$ apt-get install subversion

Gentoo users should run:

$ emerge -a subversion

Arch Linux users should run:

$ pacman -Sy subversion

Fedora Core 6 (Zod) (and most likely Red Hat) users should run:

# yum install subversion

Mandriva users should run:

# urpmi subversion

Novell SuSE users should install Subversion via YaST (if it is not already available after installing the build tools).

FreeBSD 10 users should already have Subversion, but if not, should run:

$ sudo pkg install subversion
