Re: So many fink packages for Mac OS X

Yes, I've had a lot of trouble installing svn on Mac OS X. I only use
fink for svn and I don't really understand how it works, how to update
it to the latest packages, etc. Indeed the last time I tried to
install svn, it failed and I only got it to work after I read somewhere
that you had to install ruby. I think there might be another problem
with Perl 5.8 which is what Panther comes with. I am crossing my
fingers that the Fink folks are working on this.

I feel like a fish out of water without my subversion working right now.

I was leaning to this a while ago, and somebody said it's probably
better to keep trying with Fink that to build manually. I think he's
the one who gave me the Ruby tip.
