Re: Subversion Win32 Installer RC

In my opinion, this is not an issue that should hold up the release.  This behavior is consistent with that of previous installers, so shouldn't cause additional difficulties for people.  (It's probably a fringe case where somebody installs a new instance of Subversion to a directory different from that of the original installation.)  Besides, if the user is savvy enough to configure httpd.conf for their particular repository, I'm sure they will be able to figure out how to fix this problem should it occur.

will need to look at what happened between 1.4.2 and 1.4.3.  Since I don't
use apache I will have to set it up and learn how to integrate subversion
before I can fix a release.  If this is a pre-existing issue then maybe we
can let it go for 1.4.3 and try to address it before the next release?  I
have had no feedback of any other problems.  Thoughts?

I'm a longtime lurker on this list.  Thanks everybody here for their great

I tried the new installer, and saw different behavior.  I am running Apache
httpd 2.0.59.  First of all, I stopped Apache and ran the un-installer for
Subversion 1.4.2.  Once this process completed, I ran the installer for
1.4.3.  During the installation process, I was never prompted for the
location of the Apache installation.  (I assume you are guessing at the
proper location, and prompting if you don't find it.)

Like Peter, the apache modules were not installed to the Apache directory
tree.  However, the httpd.conf file was pointed to the modules in the
Subversion directory.

Incidentally, I did not modify the httpd.conf file after I uninstalled
1.4.2.  After the installation of 1.4.3, however, I had two entries for each
of the Subversion modules.  Can this behavior be changed?  I believe that
removing (or commenting) the old entries and adding the new ones would be
fine, but perhaps prompting the user for direction would be safer.
