Subject: SVN install on Fedora Core?

Is there any clear and ordered process to install from rpm? I am
running Fedora Core 1 and started from rpm -i
subversion-1.0.1-1.fc1.i386.rpm and got the following result:

  i went through this exercise and made a mess of my RPMs by
installing from the summersoft yum repository. if you want to
avoid dependency hell, the normal approach is to find a yum
repository and update/install from there, as yum handles all
dependencies automatically. that't what i did with the summersoft
repository, to my regret.

  there have been a few postings recently regarding the mess
with libdb, but if you look at the summersoft repo, there is what
seems to be an obvious problem -- if you update subversion from
there, it appears you will also update httpd, apr-util, db42, etc.

  it's really bad form for a yum repository to have its own versions
of standard RPMs. i can't see any compelling reason for a subversion
update to simultaneously decide to update other RPMs on my system.
if a package can't work with the approved FC1 rpms, then it's simply
not well packaged.

  admittedly, i don't understand what the purpose is of those other
rpms, but if a package claims to be FC1-compatible, then it should
work with an FC1 system without wandering around, updating other
rpms it has no business touching.
