    Subversion and HTTPS bug in Intrepid 8.10 - workaround

    I wanted to post this in the open forum so other users could report success and/or updates as the other thread is closed.

    The original thread is here:

    Issue 1:

    svn: OPTIONS of 'https://xxxxxxxxxx.xxxx.xx/svn/repo': SSL negotiation failed: SSL error: Key usage violation in certificate has been detected. (https://xxxxxxxxxxx.xxxx.xx)

    This is because in Intrepid, the neon HTTP library, which Subversion uses to talk to HTTP(S) servers, has been built with GNU TLS instead of OpenSSL.

    Issue 2:

    You want to upgrade your subversion to 1.5.x.


    By running this script and/or following the steps: (script also attached)

    echo "This script will reconfigure subversion to work with certs correctly."
    echo "Steps outlined by dcrooke and compiled into this script by Kalosaurusrex"
    echo "Please see the thread for more information, questions or help."
    echo ""
    echo ""
    echo ""
    echo "Please run this script as USER ONLY."
    echo ""
    echo "Press control-c to quit..else the script will start in 5 seconds."
    sleep 5
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get autoremove
    sudo apt-get install build-essential openssl ssh expat libxyssl-dev libssl-dev libexpat1-dev
    cp ~/.subversion/servers ~/servers
    sudo apt-get remove subversion
    sudo dpkg --purge subversion
    tar xvfz subversion-1.5.4.tar.gz
    tar xvfz subversion-deps-1.5.4.tar.gz
    cd subversion-1.5.4/neon/
    ./configure --prefix=/usr/local --with-ssl --with-pic
    sudo make install
    cd ..
    rm -rf neon
    ./configure --prefix=/usr/local --with-ssl --with-neon=/usr/local
    sudo make install
    cd ..
    rm -rf subversion-1.5.4
    rm subversion-1.5.4.tar.gz
    rm subversion-deps-1.5.4.tar.gz
    cp ~/servers ~/.subversion/servers
    exit 0
    Verify your subversion version:


    svn --help

    usage: svn <subcommand> [options] [args]
    Subversion command-line client, version 1.5.4.
    I have used this script several times and it works great for me.

    Hope this helps!
