Re: Fedora RPMs (and RHEL3/WBEL3)

Thanks Toshio,

    I'll check into this next. Neither the FC1 supplied subversion (0.32) nor the 1.0 release works.
    I'm determined to get this to work. I'd hate to have to keep using CVS - not that cvs is bad - just that SVN is so much better. And I'd prefer to start with the 'latest and greatest' version of svn, if possible, but I've been testing svn0.20 on RH8 and that works very well.

Hi again,

    Still no luck.

    I started over with a fresh install of FC1 (without installing all 
of the updates with yum) - on a different box. Then followed this 
procedure (with the summersoft RPMs, as of 3/2):

rpm -e subversion
rpm -ivh db4-4.2.52-2.i386.rpm
rpm -Uvh apr-0.9.5-0.3.i386.rpm apr-util-0.9.5-0.3.i386.rpm
rpm -Uvh neon-0.24.4-1.i386.rpm
rpm -Uvh subversion-1.0.0-2.fc1.i386.rpm
rpm -Uvh subversion-server-1.0.0-2.fc1.i386.rpm 

    I still get the same error when running "svnadmin create test".

    There has to be another step or something. Right? Maybe something 
that needs to be installed with the initial install or something that 
needs to be upgraded. Is anyone using this on a clean new FC1 distribution?

Does it work with the FC1 subversion but not with the 1.0 subversion?
Or does it give Invalid Argument with all versions?

If the second, then it really would be a good idea if you'd try out the
db-4.1 rpms posted in the RH bugzilla entry (with the original FC1
Download link for db4.1 RPMS:

If that works then you'll know that your problem lies in the
glibc/kernel/db4-NPTL realm.  At that point you can install a
subversion-1.0 rpm that works with (the modified/working) db-4.1 or
recompile David Summer's db4.2 with NPTL disabled and use his set of

People telling you how they installed the summersoft RPMS aren't going
to help you as you don't have an RPM dependency problem -- you have a
bad interaction particular to your hardware/glibc/kernel/db4.
