View Full Version : [ubuntu] How do I update my subversion client from 1.6.6 (r40053) on Lucid Lynx ?

September 19th, 2011, 10:38 AM
I am running on Lucid Lynx. 10.04 LTS

My subversion client is now at version 1.6.6 (r40053).
I want to upgrade it to a newer version like 1.6.16.

I have searched on http://packages.ubuntu.com/ and the latest is 1.6.6.
A few people like this (http://www.toosweettobesour.com/2008/09/04/svn-client-too-old-in-ubuntu), have suggested that it is a matter of finding repositories that provide compiled binaries.

I have enabled backports etc.. and nothing is available.

Do you recommend I compile from source or do you perhaps have links to other repositories for Lucid Lynx ?

Your help is much appreciated.

Lucid does not seem to be supported any more ...

but ...

You can update your system with unsupported packages from this untrusted PPA by adding ppa:anders-kaseorg/subversion-1.6 to your system's Software Sources.

Take a look at the source of that quote - here (https://launchpad.net/%7Eanders-kaseorg/+archive/subversion-1.6) or google a similar PPA for that.

I had upgrade my subversion from 1.6.x to 1.7.x from this (http://askubuntu.com/questions/65468/where-can-i-find-a-subversion-1-7-binary) guide.
Hope it can help.

$ sudo apt-add-repository ppa:dominik-stadler/subversion-1.7
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get upgrade
assume you had install subversion in you system, otherwise use

$ sudo apt-get install subversionfristly.
