Re: Subversion and Apache versions

If you look at the file name it is apache-2.0.X-Y.i386.rpm. If you look
at the contents of it (rpm -qlp apache-2.0.X-Y.i386.rpm) you will see that
it puts the apache 2.X files and configuration in the /usr/local/apache2
directory with an initialization script of /etc/init.d/httpd2.

It is completely independent of the apache 1.X stuff and the server can be
turned on and off (/etc/init.d/httpd2 [ start | stop ]) independently of
the apache 1.X server.

When to packages are installed with the same name (but different version
or releases) then "rpm -q apache" will show both packages installed.
(Same thing when you install multiple kernel packages).

RPM was designed for that. :-)

 Have fun.
