Re: Subversion on RHEL v.3, httpd 2.0.48, apr 0.9.5, etc.

Ben,

Thank you for the word of warning regarding BDB 4.1. I was concerned
about it from the beginning, but installing and using 4.2 would force
us to install a non-RHEL APR/Apache which is not really an option for
us because of the added maintenance that would require. Sure enough,
it started giving us headaches last night when put under load for
testing. We are currently testing against 1.1 rc2 with FSFS, and so
far, so good.

Cheers,
-craig
