I’ve been having problems recently with SVN not being kept up to date on a company repo. So I installed SVN from source so that I could use a modern GUI.
(smartsvn has a free version which I opted to use but once it had upgraded my repos they no longer worked with the command line client – so that needed updating)
Installing from source
yum update yum groupinstall "Development tools" yum groupinstall "Additional Development" wget https://archive.apache.org/dist/subversion/subversion-1.8.9.tar.gz tar zxvf subversion-1.8.9.tar.gz cd subversion-1.8.9 ./get-deps.sh ./configure make make check sudo make install
If APR and APRUTIL cannot be found
If you find that it complains about APR and APRUTIL missing during the configure command then run this line instead:
./configure --with-apr=/usr/local/apr/ --with-apr-util=/usr/local/apr/
