Hi Hari,

Thanks for the info. I agree with your statements but unable to get the
resolution for my issue. If the subversion contains both server and client
binaries/sources then how to compile *only *subversion client. In my case i
have got the subversion-1.5.2.tar.gz source code. Then how can i install
subversion client on my linux machine.

Thanks & Regards,
