Re: [converting scarab] high repository size after cvs2svn

debian has db 4.2.52 in testing, so it's easy to install.
compiling subversion yourself is then quite easy,
as subversion already has all libraries it needs in its tar file.

if you want to compile subversion with apache:
compile the apr and apr-util found in subversion first,
then apache with pointing it to those installations
(apache has them in its tar file, too, but they aren't good enough),
and then compile subversion with the alrfeady installed apr,apt-util
and apache (apxs-config) so you get a mod_dav_svn.

it's easier than this sounds, so give it a try.

using 0.37 is a very good idea.

you will need to either dump and restore the subversion repository
for upgrading from 0.33, or - if you didn't do any changes to it so far
- simply start once more with an empty repostory and import the cvs
tree again. with 0.37 it will not be that big.

if there is a problem with cvs2svn, there is an alternative written
in perl called refinecvs that might help you.

if you have an old db installed in /usr, and a new one somewhere else,
then pointing svn to the new one will make it compile, but result in a
broken svn linked to both db libraries. don't do that. simply
apt-get install libdb4.2-dev
(maybe also libdb4.2++-dev ?) so you only have development files for the
latest 4.2.52 db on your system and you will be fine.

Good luck!
