Subversion installation



Most modern Unix/Linux systems come with a package handling system and tools to use it like the yum on Redhat based system like Fedora or apt on Debian based systems like Ubuntu.

Usually the subversion tool is already installed by default, but installation of subversion with these tools is a rather simple task.

For Redhat/Fedora system open a terminal and type in this command as root:

yum install subversion

and for Debian based systems:

apt-get install subversion

Verify that the Subversion is installed with the command:

svn --version


To install the subversion on the Windows is not too hard of a job either. You should get things running by downloading the Subversion installer and next is just following the instructions.

You should then verify that the Subversion is found from the path by executing this command:

svn --version

Configuring the proxy

If you are behind a proxy server you have to configure the Subversion tool to use it. Proxy settings are set in ~/.subversion/servers file. At the end of the file there lines commented out which says:

http-proxy-host = yourproxyhost
http-proxy-port = proxyport

At least those lines has to be uncommented (remove the # character at front) and the values replaced with proper ones.
