  • On OSX using fink to install svn-ssl-* stuff (perl 5.8.6.)

    • Now i can see the front page (svnweb-server) but get the following error when selecting my repository

        svn, version 1.2.3 (r15833)

        I did not build svn myself but used the fink package system

        ~/src/svn-client> sudo fink apropos svn | grep ^.i
          i svn-client-ssl 1.2.3-1012 Subversion - Client (with SSL)
          i svn-ssl 1.2.3-1012 Subversion - svnserve, tools (with SSL)
        • Hmm. It's possible I've used stuff in the client libraries that's only available in later releases of Subversion.

          That would be useful information to have. Would it be possible for you to try with Subversion 1.3.x or 1.4, and see if that resolves the problem for you?
          • After a lot of difficulty i managed to install

                subversion @1.4.2_0 (active)
                subversion-perlbindings @1.4.0_0 (active)

            via the 'port' package system. Unfortunately it leaves me with broken perl bindings. Both 'perl -w /usr/local/bin/svnweb-server' and 'perl -MSVN::Client -e 'print'' fails with symbol not found

            $ perl -MSVN::Client -e 'print'
