Dependencies for installing on linux

Hi all!

I'm a Windows user of Subversion and I'm trying to also work under Linux
(Mandrake 9.1), but I simply cannot install it because of a dependency

I want to install:

- subversion-0.29.0-6982.rh90.i386.rpm
- rapidsvn-0.3.0-6891.i386.rpm

But first I need to install:

- apr-0.9.4-0.1.i386.rpm
- apr-util-0.9.4-0.1.i386.rpm
- neon-0.23.9-1.i386.rpm

The problem is that Mandrake 9.1 comes pre-packaged with Apache 2.0,
which already requires APR, but another version of it. For example,
when I try to install "apr-0.9.4-0.1.i386.rpm" using URPMI, I get the
following error message:

file /usr/lib/libapr-0.so.0 from install of apr-0.9.4-0.1 conflicts with
file from package libapr0-2.0.44-11mdk

Maybe that's something trivial for seasoned Linux users, but I'm new to
this RPM concept. I've read about it and know the basics, but that's
only theory and no practice! :O)

I guess I could totally uninstall Apache (I'm not using it yet, but will
soon), and try to reinstall another version that uses the same APR
version as Subversion, but isn't that overkill? I do not necessarily
have a problem reinstalling Apache, but what will happen when I will
have to upgrade either of Apache or Subversion? I can think of more
complex situations and it is really starting to scare me off...

Put shortly:

1. What are you suggesting for this specific case?
2. What are the best practices in general for dealing with such global

Thanks in advance for your inputs,
