installing subversion on centos 3.6
I'm completely new to Linux and I would like to install subversion. I downloaded the subversion 1.4.4 package and read the INSTALL file there. It told me to run ./configure and I did, only to have it tell me that I don't have any c compilers installed. I then got a subversion rpm and a gcc rpm and trying to install either of them showed a big list of dependencies that I don't have installed. (I actually got an rpm for subversion 1.4.2, not 1.4.4) Is there some way to download a package that has everything I need to install subversion? Also, I would appreciate any links to specific files I should download and specific commands I should type to install stuff.
