View Full Version : [ubuntu] apt-get: svn has no installation candidate

Hi All,

svn seems to be missing for my installation of Karmic. Google returned one hit for the message. Any help would be appreciated.


$ svn checkout https://svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/cryptopp/trunk/c5 cryptopp
Unknown command: 'svn'
$ sudo apt-get install svn
Package svn is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
