I don't recall, but the last time I searched for "subversion download
RPM" on Google, I only found RPMs for Red Hat 8.

On http://subversion.tigris.org/project_packages.html there's a
purported link to Red Hat 9 RPMs, but it points to a page that only
has RH8 RPMs. I did eventually find RH9 RPMs, but don't recall where
I got them. But they work!

BTW, that page is a bit hard to find from the svn home page. It took
me a while to think of clicking on "Distributions" -- almost every
website I've ever seen uses "Downloads" for this. "Source code" also
didn't seem right.

I've spent nearly a day trying to build from source, and failed. It
may be a RH9 problem. I've heard problems about building Python on
that system too, though I haven't run into them myself. Even
switching to all-static linking didn't help. Building svn needs to
become easier before 1.0, folks! (Ditto for managing a server, see my
previous email.)
