1. SVN client 1.4.6 can easily work with SVN server 1.4.2. There should be
no issues with that.
2. I assume you have root access to your server. Simply uninstall the svn
installation that came with the server (sudo rpm -e <rpm name>). You are not
using it anyway. It should not affect anything else.
3. If you don't want to uninstall the subversion rpm on the server, update
the PATH to have your subversion install path first (export
PATH=/usr/local/bin:$PATH). Assuming the default shell is bash, you could
update /etc/bashrc.
