error (no svnjavahl in java.library.path)

From: <kfogel_at_collab.net>

Here's what I encountered, on a RedHat 8 system. My tentative
diagnosis is at the end. Any help much appreciated!

  $ echo $JAVA_HOME
  $ cd /big
  $ unzip eclipse-SDK-2.1.2-linux-gtk.zip
  $ unzip org.tigris.subversion.subclipse_0.8.1.zip
  $ CLASSPATH=${CLASSPATH}:/big/eclipse
  $ CLASSPATH=${CLASSPATH}:/big/eclipse/features
  $ CLASSPATH=${CLASSPATH}:/big/eclipse/plugins
  $ CLASSPATH=${CLASSPATH}:/big/eclipse/startup.jar
  $ cd eclipse
  $ ./eclipse &

Eclipse came up. I clicked on

   Window -> Open Perspective -> Other -> SVN Repository Exploring

After that, "SVN Repository Exploring" appears with a check mark
directly in the "Open Perspective" menu (i.e., not under "Other").

Then I right-clicked in the tall left-side window -- sorry, I don't
remember its name from before I clicked -- and chose

   New -> SVN Repository Location

I entered "http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn" into the URL field, and
left the authentication information blank. Then I clicked "Finish"
(note that "Validate Connection on Finish" was checked by default).
Got this error, on the console where I had started eclipse:

   Unhandled exception caught in event loop.
   no svnjavahl in java.library.path

Hmm, looks like it can't find the svnjavahl classes. But watch this:

   $ cd /big/eclipse
   $ find . -name "*svnjavahl*" -print

Whoa! The javahl classes only exist as a dll, not .so or anything
that Linux might be able to use.

Did I download the wrong thing? The download folder


doesn't say anything about being Windows-specific, and furthermore the
fact that I could get as far as I did implied to me that what I
downloaded should work under Linux...
