Ok, first, the best place to post is the users@subversion.tigris.org.

1. Yeah, I just noticed that recently, sorry about that, I'll recompile
the correct one and put it on
http://summersoft.fay.ar.us/pub/subversion/1.0.0/ tonight.

2. Just like on Fedora, you shouldn't "upgrade" (rpm -Uvh) the db4-4.2.52
but just "install" it (rpm -ivh). That should take care of that issue.

But, enough people have had problems with this (and I didn't document it
at first because I thought it was obvious) that I'm going to do a
db42-4.2.52 package this weekend for Fedora and WBEL3/RHEL3 so that it
doesn't interfere with the existing db4 package.

Please give the "install" a shot and let me know if you still have
problems.
