Clarkconnect Subversion

For some reason Clark connect comes with subversion 1.1.2 and this older version of subversion doesn’t allow 2gb commits so we need to upgrade ..not as easy as it seems

installing subversion 1.4.4

grab the rpm files for RHEL 4 from this mirror

apt-get install neon

we then need to update apr (this probably has caused something else to break)

rpm -U apr-0.9.12-2.i386.rpm
rpm -U apr-util-0.9.12-1.i386.rpm

finally we install subversion

rpm -i subversion-1.4.4-1.i386.rpm

and any extra tools we need

rpm -i subversion-python-1.4.4-1.i386.rpm
rpm -i subversion-perl-1.4.4-1.i386.rpm
rpm -i subversion-tools-1.4.4-1.i386.rpm

now it’s time to test.

seems that apr 0.9.x doesn’t support 2gb or larger repos so we download apr from here
OK this hit a wall Clark connect doesn’t allow me to update apr
