If I want to run:
svn co https://github.com/liosha/osm2mp
on e.g. Leap or also TW, do I have to run the command as root (with sudo) or
do I run it as user?
I answered this on another post.
I'm not familiar with sm2mp, but I'm familiar enough with svn. As far as
you are concerned, it is just a plain download command.
The command is "svn checkout source_tree_link directory" and it just makes
a copy of the source tree directory (or text files or whatever) into
If it were the case of C source files you would _later_ make and install
them as root later. That is _later_. The svn command is run as user.
Note: my description of svn is (intentionally) not precise. For your use
case, it suffices, though.
If you want to be more precise, well, the svn server keeps a current copy
of "text files", but also of all the modifications that those text files
undergo, so that you can undo some modification or get a copy of the files
as they were on an exact date (and second) a year ago. Writers upload the
modifications, and people can "checkout" a copy.
You are only getting a copy of the files as they are this instant. A
checkout, or 'co' in short.
This is the least of your worries. Just run the command as user and move
on to your next step :-)
