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.
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). NOTE: I am planning to drop support
for Berkely DB in the next build since I do not see it in wide use.
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 svn_wrappers script works w/this installation as well as
recommendations for upgrades from prior 1.x builds. You will need a
group created for your subversion users, typically "svn," before you run it.
Linux version built on Red Hat 7.1, tested on RedHat Enterprise 3, 4 and
RedHat 9, all for x86. By building on 7.1, it should have maximum
forward compatibility. If anyone is trying this on Ubuntu/Debian or
SuSE, I'd be interested in your feedback.
Mac version built on Tiger 10.4.6. I have kept the Panther (10.3) build
of Subversion 1.3.0 and the Jaguar (10.2) build of Subversion 1.0.6 in
the same directory. MD5 checksums:
Solaris version built on Solaris 8 Sparc (using the unbundled
SunPro/Forte compilers), which is forward-compatible with all future
versions of Solaris, up to and including the latest version 10 (and
Nevada), per Sun's ABI compatibility guarantees. I don't have easy
access to a Solaris x86 environment -- if anyone wants to contribute
builds, I'd be happy to host them.
All versions linked dynamically against the system zlib (see below re:
Solaris) and statically against:
- Berkely DB 4.2.52, with patches 1-4 applied
- Expat 2.0.0
- OpenSSL 0.9.8b
- Neon, APR, and APRUtil as shipped in the Subversion 1.3.2 tarball
Hope this helps other groups that have similar cross-platform needs for
a simple kit they can give to their developers...
