Setting Up Subversion on Ubuntu Linux

As part of my latest Linux project, I have decided to install Subversion to see what all the fuss is about. That and I forgot where I had set up my CVS repository. :P At any rate, after scouring the Web, I have finally found a decent set of instructions explaining how to install Subversion on Ubuntu. So without further ado, I'd like to spread the Subversion love around:

Subversion Install on Ubuntu

Also, be sure to get yourself a copy of TortoiseSVN if you'd like to access your repository from a Windows machine. It integrates right into Explorer. Very nice. :)

Finally, if you'd like to get the Eclipse Subversion plug-in, check out this site for some comprehensive instructions. Please note that the Eclipse IDE referenced on the site is the Eclipse PHP editor (Eclipse PDT). It references a slightly older site, so you'll have to go here to get the latest build. As of this writing, the latest stable build of Eclipse PDT is version 0.7. Install Eclipse PDT, the rest of the instructions on installing the SVN plug-in work just fine. Also, I think that the plug-in installation instructions work for the regular Java-only flavor of Eclipse (though I haven't tried it myself, so don't take my word for it).
