I have updated my static builds of Subversion for Mac, Linux x86 and
Solaris Sparc to the new version. These static builds are intended
(mostly) as client installations for workstations -- typically targeted
for install under /usr/local, but since they are statically linked may
also be run from a home directory or other location. They also include
a simple svnserve configuration that should work well for multi-user
access via svn+ssh://. As a client install, the svn binaries all
support file, http, https, svn, and svn+ssh access methods. The server
install supports fsfs and Berkeley DB (statically linked).
Available for download, along with the scripts used to build them, at:
The 00README.txt file in each client directory contains info about how
the included svnserve wrapper works w/this installation. You may need
to tweak group IDs or permissions on the svnserve* files to suit your
environment. If you are using these binaries to do an svnserve-based
server, you may want to use setgid/umask-based wrappers for svnadmin
and other utilities, similar to what was done for svnserve.
Alternatively, use an fsfs-based repository which is not nearly as
Linux version built on Red Hat 7.1, tested on RedHat Enterprise 3 and
RedHat 9, all for x86. By building on 7.1, it should have maximum
Mac version built on Panther 10.3.8. Peter Centgraf from CMU has
contributed a build of Subversion 1.0.6 for Jaguar in this same
(MD5: c0ea53ce7758e11369dc8a37c384c05c subversion-1.0.6-jaguar.dmg)
Solaris version built on Solaris 2.6 Sparc using GCC 2.95.3, which is
forward-compatible with all future versions of Solaris, up to and
including the latest version 10, per Sun's ABI compatibility guarantees.
All versions linked dynamically against the system zlib and statically
- Berkely DB 4.2.52, with patches 1-4 applied
- Expat 1.95.8
- OpenSSL 0.9.7f
- Neon, APR, and APRUtil as shipped in the Subversion 1.1.4 tarball
- Solaris 2.6 build linked statically against Zlib 1.2.2
Hope this helps other groups that have similar cross-platform needs for
a simple kit they can give to their developers...
