RE: Re: Xandros OS and .deb binaries of subversion

Subversion isn't in debian stable. As far as I know, it isn't even in
testing yet (although that may have changed in the last day or two: you
can check at http://packages.debian.org)

    apt-get install subversion

... won't find it at all.

    apt-get install unstable/subversion

... will find subversion, but won't find any of the packages it depends
on. For instance, not even apache2 is in stable (it is in testing
though)

If you are willing to deal with any possible conflicts with running a
mixed distro, then try

  apt-get -t unstable install subversion

This will resolve dependencies through the unstable branch. You
*shouldn't* have any problems. My subversion box is running debian
testing ("sarge") with subversion from unstable; my web server/mail
gateway is running debian stable and some packages from testing and
unstable (although not subversion). I did have to reboot once (yes
really) when a package installed but did not stop and restart some
running services, but other than that it all works fine.

You should provide more details. Your installer should display the
missing or conflicting dependencies.
