I have updated my static builds of Subversion for Mac/powerpc, Linux/x86,
Solaris/sparc and Solaris/x86 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
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 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 for PowerPC. I don't have the scripts
to build or a machine to test for Intel but these binaries should run just
fine under Rosetta. 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 in the macosx/ directory:
Solaris/sparc version built on Solaris 7 (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.
Solaris/x86 version built on Solaris 10 (using the unbundled
SunPro/Forte compilers), which should run on both i386 and x64 (AMD
Opteron/Intel EM64T) systems. I have only tested it on i386. This
should also run on Solaris Express and Open Solaris/Nevada but that
has not been tested.
All versions linked dynamically against the system zlib except for
Solaris 7 Sparc (where there is no system zlib) and statically agains:
- Berkely DB 4.4.20, with patches 1-4 applied
- Expat 2.0.0
- OpenSSL 0.9.8d
- Neon, APR, and APRUtil as shipped in the Subversion 1.4.0 tarball
Hope this helps other groups that have similar cross-platform needs for
a simple kit they can give to their developers...
