Building apps from KDE svn

Just a small post to jot down the list of things to be done to build some app from KDE svs. (http://websvn.kde.org)

1) Check out from the svn
svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/branches/digikam/0.8-experimental digikam-devel
(for knowing the path for your application, go to Websvn and look for the directory structure add the directory path in websvn to the string svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/ )
2) If some external item checkout fails like this :
Fetching external item into 'digikam-devel/admin'
svn: PROPFIND request failed on '/home/kde/trunk/KDE/kde-common/admin'
svn: PROPFIND of '/home/kde/trunk/KDE/kde-common/admin': could not connect to server (https://svn.kde.org)

Checkout that item seperately and link to it as require
svn co svn://anonsvn.kde.org/home/kde/trunk/KDE/kde-common
cd digikam-devel
ln -s ../admin admin

3) make -f Makefile.cvs
configure ...
cd # optional
make
make install
# (much later)
svn up

Thanks to Achim Bohnet and Renchi Raju for the help.
