How do I install svn?

I'll assume then you've already changed your /etc/apt/sources.list file to the old-releases repositories, run


sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install subversion

If you still have errors please post the full terminal output of the above command.

I was frustrated, but didn't think I was rude. If so, I apologize. I just think that the state of learning and teaching could be improved by one rule: never obfuscate, never give irrelevant info, and don't state the obvious. However, it is not obvious, what the "obvious" obviously is. So obviously, that can be excused, if not obviated.

Now, I am pretty sure I have not "changed my /etc/apt/sources.list" to old release repo" Where do I get this list?

Subversion (SVN) is a version control system initiated in 2000 by CollabNet Inc. It is used to maintain current and historical versions of files such as source code, web pages, and documentation. Its goal is to be a mostly-compatible successor to the widely used Concurrent Versions System (CVS).

Subversion (software)


The svnserve program is a lightweight server, capable of speaking to clients over TCP/IP using a custom, stateful protocol. Clients contact an svnserve server by using URLs that begin with the svn:// or svn+ssh:// schema.

At the moment Subversion is not included in the firmware of the QNAP. Hopefully it soon will be avaible as a QPKG package so it easily could be installed through the webinterface. But until further notice it has to be installed through ipkg.

Subversion looks to be the new version control system of choice in the open source community, supplanting CVS which supplanted RCS. This article,

Why Subversion Over CVS

, gives some reasons to choose Subversion over CVS. Many people also choose subversion over commercial products such as ClearCase and Visual Source Safe. The authors of "Windows Developer Power Tools" (O'Reilly 2006) write:

Subversion is our favorite version-control system, and we definitely recommend it above all others (including commercial products) in most scenarios. There may be certain areas where commercial systems excel, but for overall version control, it's tough to beat Subversion.

Step by step instructions

Here are my notes for installing Subversion, TortoiseSVN (a Subversion client which integrates with Windows Explorer), and Subclipse (the plugin for Eclipse integration) on Windows. This assumes you already have Eclipse installed. Also, these notes are geared towards version control...

Installation & Upgrade:

When upgrading TortoiseSVN, do I have to uninstall the existing version first?

No. You can just install the new version over the old one. The installer will take care of uninstalling the old version first automatically. But you must reboot your computer after the installer finishes! Or at least you have to log off and log on again.

Do I need Admin privileges to install TortoiseSVN?

Yes, you need to have Admin privileges to install TortoiseSVN, or at least have the rights to install with Admin privileges.

But after TortoiseSVN has been installed, you can use it without having Admin privileges.

Do I need to install Subversion before I can use TortoiseSVN?

No. TortoiseSVN comes with everything you need to access a repository. Only if you want to set up a server then you will need the Subversion package.

How do I uninstall TortoiseSVN?

Simply uninstall from Add/Remove Programs in the...

Hi everyone, today in this tutorial we'll be installing Apache SVN also popular as Subversion on our CentOS 7 or RHEL 7 which is an awesome tool for version control system which is suitable from small project to large projects. So, here is some information on what really is Apache SVN (Subversion).

Apache Subversion (often abbreviated SVN, after the command name svn) is a software versioning and revision control system distributed as free software under the Apache License. Developers use Subversion to maintain current and historical versions of files such as source code, web pages, and documentation. Its goal is to be a mostly compatible successor to the widely used Concurrent Versions System (CVS).

The free software community has used Subversion widely: for example in projects such as Apache Software Foundation, Free Pascal, FreeBSD, GCC, Mono and SourceForge. Google Code also provides Subversion hosting for their free software projects. CodePlex offers access to...

When it comes to readily available, free source control, I don't think you can do better than Subversion at the moment. I'm not necessarily advocating Subversion; there are plenty of other great source control systems out there -- but few can match the ubiquity and relative simplicity of Subversion. Beyond that, source control is source control, as long as you're not using Visual SourceSafe. And did I mention that Subversion is ... free?

Allow me to illustrate how straightforward it is to get a small Subversion server and client going on Windows. It'll take all of 30 minutes, tops, I promise. And that's assuming you read slowly.

The first thing we'll do is download the latest Subversion Windows binary installer. At the time of writing, that's 1.46. I recommend overriding the default install path and going with something shorter:


Note that the installer adds c:svnbin to your path, so you can launch a command prompt and start working with it...

sbopkg how to install svn versions of x264, ffmpeg, mplayer and why?

location: - date: January 29, 2010
I read with interest how ubuntu forums guide users to install the latest svn versions of x264, ffmpeg and mplayer. Primarily, this is important for users who rip movies from dvds. How do I perform the same tasks using sbopkg? I believe some compilation options must be changed to reflect the svn changes. Has anyone done this before? Are the steps important when using slackware 13 x86_64?

If the issue is case sensitivity (which can be a problem when checking out to a Mac, as well as windows) and you don't have the option of checking out onto a *nix system, the following should work. Here's the process from the beginning:

% svn co http://[domain]/svn/mortgages mortgages

[checkout ensues… then…]

svn: In directory 'mortgages/trunk/images/rates'

svn: Can't open file 'mortgages/trunk/images/rates/.svn/tmp/text-base/Header_3_nobookmark.gif.svn-base': No such file or directory

What's happening here is that svn is trying to check out two files with similar names that differ only by case - Header_3_noBookmark.gif and Header_3_nobookmark.gif. Mac filesystems default to case insensitivity in a way that causes svn to choke in situations like this. So...

% cd mortgages/trunk/images/rates/

% svn up

svn: Working copy '.' locked

svn: run 'svn cleanup' to remove locks (type 'svn help cleanup' for details)

The purpose of this tutorial is to install and get started using TortoiseSVN, a popular Subversion client for Windows.

Why do I want SVN and what are we going to do with it?

There are many reasons why you may want to use SVN (Note: I may use SVN and Subversion interchangeably throughout this tutorial) in WordPress applications:

to contribute to WordPress you need access to the code you develop themes and plugins and want to test the latest changes to interact with your theme provider’s updates (i.e. “checkout” themes) to keep track of your own changes to themes probably a lot more I can’t think of right now

Personally, I’m playing around with Justin Tadlock’s Hybrid Core and need to keep track of what I am doing myself in my theme files.

So today we are going to install TortoiseSVN and also perform a couple basic tasks that you may use. This tutorial only scratches the surface of what you can do using Subversion, and is meant to just get us...

Thanks to Wandisco, which is maintaining the rpm packages for latest Subversion version. This article will help you to Install Subversion 1.8.15 ( SVN Client ) on CentOS/RHEL 7/6/5 Systems. If you want to configure Subversion server visit this article.

Step 1: Setup Yum Repository

Firstly we need to configure yum repository in our system. Create a new repo file /etc/yum.repos.d/wandisco-svn.repo and add following content as per your operating system version.

[WandiscoSVN] name=Wandisco SVN Repo baseurl=$releasever/svn-1.8/RPMS/$basearch/ enabled=1 gpgcheck=0

Step 2: Install Subversion Package

Before installing latest package remove existing subversion packages from system to remove conflict.

# yum remove subversion*

Now install latest available Subversion package using yum command line package manager utility.

# yum clean all # yum install subversion

Step 3: Verify Subversion Version

You can install Subversion by compiling its source code release directly, or you can install one of the prepackaged binaries if there is one for your operating system. Unless a release has "alpha", "beta", or "rc" in its name, it is tested and considered stable for production use.

When upgrading, just install "on top of" the older release. Subversion 1.x is forward-compatible with any newer 1.y. No repository upgrade is required. As long as client and server both have the same major release number (1), olders clients will work with newer servers and newer clients will work with older servers. The only caveat is that if the client and server minor release numbers don't match (e.g., 1.0 and 1.1), then some of the features of the newer release may not be activated.

Source Release ¶

To build Subversion from a source code release:

Download the latest source code distribution or checkout the source code from version control. Build and...
