Re: [Trac] Best *nix for SVN?

        I use Subversion on a FreeBSD-4.10-p2 machine, using only svnserve to
check in/out and have had no problems with it since the installation.

        As Jacob said, FreeBSD is a very good server system, so it would be the
right choice. And if you've installed 'portupgrade' from the ports, you
can install Subversion and create a repository with just a single command:

        portinstall -m "WITH_REPOSITORY_CREATION=yes" subversion
