Re: need help setting up svn+ssh://

Working from several day old memory (notoriously unreliable), I had a
similar problem on Redhat 9.0
        
        sudo rpm -Uvh subversion.mumble (from the page you posted)
        unresolved dependencies (perl-something).

So I tried yum instead (HIGHLY recommended; google duke and yum)
        sudo yum install subversion
        resolving dependencies... (several)
        done

MUCH better! I believe the version installed though is somewhat old, and
didn't realize I should use it only to download a later one. Once I did
that it worked flawlessly.

PS: Why perl? I thought only python was involved.
