I have to install Subversion client 1.6.3 on a AIX machine. Is there a place I can get the pre compiled binaries and just install it?
Otherwise, where can I find the steps to compile the source code and install svn client.
Please do not post in HTML.
I have successfully built 1.6.9 on AIX 5.3 and 1.4.5 on AIX 4.3 (still working on 1.6.9 on AIX 4.3). This is what I did for AIX 5.3 (SVN 1.6.9)
Of course, before doing all this I tested it using the --prefix option to all configure to built it locally. When you do that you will have to adjust the --with-apr and --with-apr-util options to point to the locally installed apr and apr-util (I think I remember I had to add the bin directory at the end of the path, so something like /home/dev/local/apr/bin).
Give it a try. Maybe it won't work for you as is but it's a start.
