Well i have only one version of SVN installed and that too from a source
tar.Will it be possible for someone to send me installation steps.My
requirement is listed below
Good morning again, Himanshu:
I'm happy if RPM reports that there's no Subversion package installed. That
will save you trouble. When I installed FC6, and chose the defaults, it was
installed automatically and was all set when installation was done. I
didn't have to do anything to get Subversion installed when FC6 was set up
-- and indeed I was surprised when I started to build from source and found
it all ready to go. So I take this to mean that either your installation
was different from the default, or someone removed the packaged Subversion.
But in any event, this is all to the good for you.
From memory, when building from source, I think all you need is
$ ./configure (with options as you indicated) #set up the makefile
$ make # build the
$ make install #set them up
in the right places on your system
I found that when building from source, the instructions in the Subversion
book and instructions that came with the tarball were all I needed to get
I don't use BDB, so I can't advise you if there's anything special you need
to do to verify that BDB works. After installing, I would create a test
repository and practice commits, checkouts, merges, and backup/restore if
you want complete confidence that everything is OK. Others, though, are
much smarter than I am and might have better advice.
Best regards, Erik
