Re: Trying to run subversion on Fedora Core 1

So.... I went and grabbed source RPMS and built and installed:

db4(-devel) 4.2.52-3.1
apr(-devel) 0.9.4-21
apr-util(-devel) 0.9.4-16
subversion 1.0.5-1

I still have db4-4.1.25-14 installed because I saw a mail in the archive
suggesting to do that because of it being required by so many things.

I run ldd /usr/bin/svn and it shows libdb-4.2.so

I still get the same error.
