[GRASS-user] Compiling addons from svn repository

If you install GRASS with "sudo apt-get install grass" this does
everything for you and you don't need to compile anything.

Although you could get also the source with apt-get (don't know exactly
how right now and where it will be placed), you can decide to create a
source directory for all of your "geo-source
codes" (e.g. /home/nik/source or /usr/local/src --- it doesn't matter I
think where it is but you have to give full read-write-execute access to
your login) and "draw" the source codes with svn as it is described in
[1]: svn checkout https://svn.osgeo.org/grass/grass-addons grass-addons

Another "svn" example is: svn checkout
https://svn.osgeo.org/grass/grass/trunk grass_trunk 
This will get the trunk(=grass7) source code and put it in a directory
called "grass_trunk" (look at last argument of the above command) within
the directory from where you execute the command. So if you are
currently in /home/eduardo the "grass_trunk" directory will be created
in /home/eduardo.

More "linux" examples in [2]
