Oh! Well, that's probably why you ran into problems!!??

The RedHat 9.0 RPMs are not designed to work with FC1, FC2, or FC3.

FC2 and FC3 have subversion built-in, and I used to have an FC1 box but
no more and someone else has been building them for me and I've been
putting the FC1 RPMs on my web site.

I suggest you use the built-in Subversion RPMs to FC3 instead of mine
for RedHat 9.

The different RedHat and Fedora and RHEL3 are all different animals and
lots (but not all) binaries (RPMs) from one should not be mixed with the

I'm currently building RedHat 7.3, 8.0, 9.0, and WBEL3 RPMs.

You might be able to take the SRC RPMs, however, and compile them on
FC3. I've not tried that. It may or may not work out-of-the-box
depending on what changes have been made on FC3.

If you do try to compile the SRC RPMs, please let me know what you find out.
