Subversion runs on all modern flavors of Unix (like linux and Mac OS X) and Microsoft Windows 2000/XP. Subversion 1.1.x or later is recommended, where the latest is Subversion 1.2.x. Recent linux distributions come with Subversion, although it might not installed by default. For older linux distributions, users need to download and install binary packages.
Shown below are installation instructions for recent and/or popular
Linux distributions, Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows 2000/XP. Please
