Subversion packages in repo upgraded to 1.4.3

April 23, 2007 by · 10 Comments 

After taking a long weekend to enjoy my new FIOS TV service (by the way, if you haven't seen FIOS TV then you haven't actually watched TV, this is crystal clear), I decided to build Subversion 1.4.3 packages for my repo. These, as with the last batch, are based on DAG's spec file but have been compiled against newer versions of apr & httpd.

Questions and comments, leave them below. Otherwise, enjoy.

    This is really appreciated.

    I can confirm that mod_dav_svn and subversion installed fine.

    I am away for a couple of days now but will configure and test a repository and confirm all is well as soon as possible (most likely end of this week).

    I know you do not use Subversion yourself. With that in mind, do you intend to keep these packages up to date with new Subversion releases (like you do with your httpd, mysql and php packages) assuming DAG keeps up with new releases?

    Thanks as always for all the work you put in to this.

    Trac usually goes hand-in-hand with Subversion. I know that Jason doesn't use svn, so I'd like to ask the rest of Jason's fans: anyone have a good repo for Trac that is compatible with Jason's fine work here?


  3. Jason says:


    Yes, now that the packages are in my repo, I plan to keep then updated. Just know though that it may take me a few days to notice that a new version is available and a day or two more to actually build the packages.


    What is it about my packages that breaks trac? I was under the impression that it was just a web interface and that as long as you had Python support you were OK. Is that not true?

    Thanks Jason.

    It is great to hear that you plan to keep the packages up to date.

    When I get back at the end of the week I will get a repository configured and tested so I can report back as promsied.


    I don't use trac so I can't be 100% sure that Jason's packages don't break something but I thought the same as him - that as long as you had Python support you were OK. Details regarding trac's dependencies can be found here:

  5. Cassius says:

    Thanks Jason. I uninstalled svn and reinstalled from your repo, and then installed trac, which I believe pulled from DAG, and it all works together. I thought there was a problem with version dependencies, but unfortunately I did not keep track of everything that I installed and then removed. So I am under the impression that your rpms do work with trac, and it was my error.


  6. Ayourk says:

    I just recently upgraded my system to RHEL5 server and the subversion packages won't install due to a newer version of libneon being in the system than what these packages expect. Where can I find the SRPM or a list of SRPMs for all of the packages on here?

  7. Jason says:

    I am looking into building packages for EL5 but it is not currently a high priority for me since I'm not using it and you're actually the first to request it.

    To answer, I only distribute SRPMS for my MySQL, PHP, and httpd packages and those can be found linked to from my announcement posts. EL5 already has updated versions of the rest of the packages I use so there isn't much difference there.

  8. Ayourk says:

    Actually your version of subversion is newer than what is distributed with EL5. YUM keeps wanting to install your packages (yes I could override this), but fails due to missing when exists. If I could rebuild the SRPM on EL5, that would fix the problem. I have a similar problem with APR/httpd.

  9. Jason says:

    Yes, I believe it's 1.4.2, but that's still a lot closer than the version that ships with EL4. As I said, I'll get around to it eventually.

    Not that I'm totally impressed, but this is a lot more than I expected for when I stumpled upon a link on Furl telling that the info is quite decent. Thanks.
    p.s. Year One is already on the Internet and you can watch it for free.
