Subject Re: Compile Subversion 1.6.5 on SLES 11.1
Date Thu, 24 Feb 2011 10:07:35 GMT
Hi Stefan,
Thanks for your many replies.
The Reason why i want to doit like that is because SLES 11.1 Subversion from the repository
is not available. (We use a company internal SLES repository which is under specific company
restrictions & security policies) but if you can confirm to me that the packages provided
in the email will work on 11.1 without an upgrade to 11.2 or 11.3 I would be very happy (it
would be awesome and safe worktime).

me a good Guide which has all the steps in it or tell me what i'am doing wrong? I have read
the "-fPIC" Error Site from Gentoo because this was the site google was spitting out but i
seem to have lack of understanding about the makefiles and where to place this -fPIC argument
if it is really required.

No idea.

Any reason you're not using the latest Subversion binaries from the
OpenSUSE/SLES buildservice (apart from the fact that it seems to be down at
the moment)? Those binaries are maintained by SUSE developers with help
from other people (including myself), have been automatically packaged and
tested and are ready to be installed via yast. They are of the same
quality as can be expected from the Subversion packages that ship on
the distribution media.

If you are going to go through the effort of building your own binaries,
1.6.5 seems like an odd choice. You might as well try to build 1.6.15
which is the current stable release.
