Re: upgrading FC1 system from the summersoft repo?

I appreciate all the work that the packager of the summersoft site has
gone through to supply us all with easily installable packages of
subversion(hats off to you).

I am rather surprised though that he didn't just compile it against the
already installed db4-4.1.25-14. I have not had any problems with the
db4 that fedora core 1 comes with going back to version .32 of
subversion(currently at .37). That would have solved needing a new db4
and needing to supply another version of apache, which can break
dependencies on other third party RPMS that require the fedora core 1
httpd and db4(not so much db4 now since he has a special db42 rpm).

I realize that db 4.1 is not recommended going by previous posts from
other distros, but RedHat tends to backport fixes to packages, so maybe
that is why 4.1 works fine for me. Is there something I am missing that
would require not using the httpd and db4 4.1.25 that redhat supplies
with fedora core 1?

I plan to just take the subversion src rpm on summersoft.fay.ar.us and
recompile it on the current fedora core 1 so that I can use the existing
httpd and db4. Has anyone already done this and had problems? It would
have been nice to just yum update off of summersoft.fay.ar.us binaries
though without changing the current db4 and httpd.
