Which subversion rpm should I download?

I know almost nothing about SUSE. And not much more about Linux. I’m not a sysadmin. However, I’m going to be handed a SUSE box (looks like probably 10.x, but not entirely sure) in the next week or two. On this box, I need to install a subversion 1.6.6 server. This box will not have internet access (it’s behind a firewall managed by corporate drone types).

I went here to download an rpm.

I narrowed the search to SLES/SLED 10. I don’t know what SLES/SLED stands for, but I recall seeing SLES on the document I got listing what OS was going to be installed on this box.

Anyway, there are 7 pages of results. And many of those are 1.6.6. I know I need the 64-bit version. But … which one? Why is there 1.6.6-3.1 and 1.6.6-3.2 and 1.6.6-1.1, etc? How do I know which one I’m supposed to download?

I’m sorry if this is a stupid question, or the answer is obvious. This isn’t my area of expertise in any way. I just need to get a 1.6.6 subversion server installed on this box once I get access to it. Thanks for any help.

Hi
Can you confirm your using SLE?


lsb_release -d

If your running SLE, then I would use the the one from;
http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/devel:/tools:/scm:/svn/SLE_10

It won’t be supported as such if you have issues either, if you could
live with 1.5.7 from the SLE SDK, then I recommend that.

Also these forums are for openSUSE (the free community
edition), in the future, please ask any questions at
http://forums.novell.com

Hi Malcolm,

Thanks. No, I don’t have access to the machine yet. I don’t even know if it’s been built.

Anyway, at least I have something to start with now, and knowledge that SLES is Novell’s implementation of SUSE. Thanks again.

Well, SUSE is a Novell company - SLES (and SLED) are the enterprise
versions, which are derived from the openSUSE project.
