Download the source code

In all cases, we recommend pulling the binary build. Building from source should be rare and requires a number of development packages that are not installed by default. See the System requirements.

These source tarballs are designed to be unwound in a product directory, <product-dir>. You can use an existing relocatable product directory or make a new one. <product-dir> can live anywhere with sufficient disk space.

Admin privileges are neither required nor encouraged. However, please note that you must be able to write in <product-dir>.
