Re: Question about Apache/svn server fink installation problem

From: Hamilton Link <helink_at_sandia.gov>

I just had a thought, so here's two questions for fink/svn people...

If I'm trying to install binaries of svn and apache2, which are
supposedly linked against stuff related to the binary fink 0.8.1, but
have updated fink from cvs, is it possible that therein lies a problem?
Or should that not matter.

Should I be building the unstable svn 1.4 stuff? Is that better than
the current stable svn 1.2 builds in any important ways?

thanks,
h
