2. Download Development Snapshot from SVN (not fully tested)

If you want to get the latest development branch of MCX, you can download it from our SVN. You have to be aware that an SVN snapshot is not a stable release. It may have partially implemented features and, thus, cause crash or erroneous results.

First, make sure you have installed svn client on your system. If you are using a Debian-based GNU/Linux system (such as Ubuntu, Knoppix etc), you can install svn by

 sudo apt-get install subversion

if you are using a Redhat-based GNU/Linux system (such as Fedora, CentOS etc), you can do this by

 su -c 'yum install subversion'

If your operating system is Windows, we recommend you installing TortoiseSVN.

2.1. Anonymous SVN Access

The latest code snapshot can be checked out from project's SVN repository. This can be done anonymously by the following command.

 svn co https://svn.code.sf.net/p/mcx/svn/mcextreme_cuda/trunk mcx

The password is the same as the username. After you checking out the code, you can compile and run the software.

2.2. Developer SVN Access

If you are one of the developers who have SVN write-permission, you can checkout the latest code with the same command above.

You will have to register an account and ask the project maintainer to grant you SVN permission).

Once checkout, you can simply make changes or debug your changes in your local copy. If your local changes have passed review by other co-developers, you can then commit your changes back to the svn repository by

 cd /path/to/mcx/local/copy
 svn commit -m "a short summary of your changes"
