RE: Evaluating SVN software

Subversion is written in ANSI C and uses APR, the Apache Portable
Runtime library, as a portability layer. The Subversion client will run
anywhere APR runs, which is most places. The Subversion server (i.e.,
the repository side) is the same, except that it will not host a
Berkeley DB repository on Win9x platforms (Win95/Win98/WinME), because
Berkeley DB has shared-memory segment problems on Win9x. FSFS
repositories (introduced in version 1.1) do not have this restriction;
however, due to a limitation in Win9x's file-locking support, they also
don't work in Win9x.
To reiterate, the Subversion client can be run on any platform where APR
runs. The Subversion server can also be run on any platform where APR
runs, but cannot host a repository on Win95/Win98/WinMe.

If it works in Windows 2000, please send me instructions to setup server
& client

Subject: Evaluating SVN software

I am trying to evaluate SVN source control software package for our
internal use.
We are running file server on windows 2000 SP4
Based on FAQ, It seems like SVN can not host the repository on Windows
2000 server.
Please advise
