Please help upgrade subversion on Fedora 8


Dear All,

I'm using Fedora 8 and subversion 1.4.4.
I just want to upgrade subversion to version 1.6 and tried with rpmforge.
But rpmforge is used for Centos, not for Fedora

I ran 'yum --enablerepo=rpmforge update subversion' but it displayed error
Code:
Error: Missing Dependency: libneon.so.25()(64bit) is needed by package subversion-1.6.12-0.1.el5.rf.x86_64 (rpmforge)
Error: Missing Dependency: python(abi) = 2.4 is needed by package subversion-1.6.12-0.1.el5.rf.x86_64 (rpmforge)
I installed python 2.5 in my server, but it still displays errors.
Is there the way to upgrade subversion without a source?

Thanks and Best Regards

Why did you still use Fedora 8? Please give us the output of:
Code:
ls -l /usr/lib64 | grep libneon.so
rpm -q --provides python | grep abi

Make a symbolic link and try again:
Code:
cd /usr/lib64
ln -s libneon.so.27.0.2 libneon.so.25

Yes, I will try. Thanks for your advice...

Add the F13 repositories so that you can install svn via YUM, as F8 is so outdated that KDE is 4.0 and GNOME is 2.20! This is a much easier way to install Subversion, as building it from source is a real pain.

My question is why you didn't go with Rawhide:

Code:
su -c "yum install fedora-release-rawhide"
This will enable repositories to ensure that your software is up-to-date.

with rawhide
in fedora rawhide is THE STILL IN TESTING/ALPHA/BETA/not working
next version of fedora in this case fedora 14
the op is still using the dead fedora 8

-- to the OP --
if you LIKE running a server WITH KNOWN security holes and UNSUPPORTED software
and software that will NEVER be fixed . and the ONLY way to install anything new is to build from source ( and build every and ALL redundancies from source)
then stay with the DEAD and unsupported fedora 8

otherwise install the current fedora 13 then in about 5 months fedora 15 then 6 months later fedora 16 + 6months fedora 17

or install a LONG LIFE distro DESIGNED for a server like CentOS ( 5 year support VS fedora's 6 month/13month )

as to installing ANY new software on fedora 8

YOU DO NOT

you install fedora 13 FIRST

there is ZERO chance of fedora 13 repo working in fedora 8
there is also zero chance of "upgrading "fedora 8 to 13
and turnning on the rawhide repo is a VERY BIG NO-NO
EVERY fourm post on that states NEVER TURN FEDORA RAWHIDE repo
unless you are alpha and or beta testing the source build of THE NEXT FEDORA RELEASE
and yes i have been using fedora for MANY MANY years .
