Re: Question on building Subversion.

From: David Tyler <dtyler_at_justicesystems.com>

Upon closer inspection of the installation guide described below, it does mention that Berkeley DB is not needed if one is only using FSFS. May I suggest that the section "5. Berkeley DB 4.X " of the Quick start guide be modified to explain this a little more clearly for the uninitiated? At first blush, it appears to indicate that Berkeley DB is required for Subversion. This mistake was re-enforced by messages that are displayed by the configure script indicating that it was unable to find Berkeley DB.

Thank you,
David

I was following the INSTALL text document contained in the Subversion 1.4.3 tar file, the first few lines of which are:

               ======================================
                      INSTALLING SUBVERSION
                          A Quick Guide
               ======================================

$LastChangedDate: 2006-10-27 21:27:02 +0000 (Fri, 27 Oct 2006) $

If there is a better set of directions for installing and setting up a Subversion server, please point me to them. Also, if the INSTALL document contained in the Subversion distribution is outdated, may I submit a request to update/remove it?

Thank you,
David

PS: I am probably showing my ignorance here, but what does FSFS stand for?

Why are you using BDB? It's been deprecated - FSFS is the prefered and
recommended repository type (and is now the default).
