So I had to upgrade subversion on Fedora because my WinXP TortoiseSVN client "upgraded" my repositories, obsoleting my Linux clients.
So I had to recompile subversion on Fedora myself because the latest svn for Fedora (yum) is still at 1.5.
So I had to recompile and install the Apache Portable Runtime (APR) libraries apr and apr-util because subversion needs them and the previous Fedora installations didn't have something subversion needed, whatever that was.
I downloaded apr-1.3.5, apr-util-1.3.7, and apr-iconv-1.2.1 from apr.apache.org. In apr-1.3.5 I used
and make and sudo make install.
In apr-util, I used
./configure --prefix=/usr --with-apr=/usr/bin
and make and sudo make install. I did the same with subversion.
Thought I was happy until I noticed my web server was down:
Starting httpd: httpd: Syntax error on line 161 of /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf: Cannot load /etc/httpd/modules/mod_ldap.so into server: /etc/httpd/modules/mod_ldap.so: undefined symbol: apr_ldap_ssl_init
So I recompiled apr-util with
./configure --prefix=/usr --with-apr=/usr/bin --with-ldap
And now both subversion and Apache seem to be happy.
Did I miss anything else?
Who's maintaining subversion for Fedora? I understand Ubuntu's even further behind.
