    See this:
    III. Building A Subversion Server

    First problem:
    The compile_rules for apache.tazpkg are wrong for an apache subversion server.
    See here:

    In other words you have to compile apache from source. If you can do that you may be able to compile with mod_dav_svn.h which is in subversion-dev.tazpkg

    Try svnserve an alternative to apache is included in subversion.tazpkg

    Dear Mojo,

    Thank you very much for your reply. Its very sad that I have to do a lot of work for getting Subversion + Apache to work together. Even if I succeed, I have to again make PHP and MySQL work. I was quite thrilled to see SliTaz boot up so fast on the server, of a small Java Development Team that uses with WinXP as client.

    They are running FC5 as their Server Software for over some years now. Then the sysadmin left the company and they do not know how to add new users to the Apache+svn. So, I thought of  duplicating all the functionality on Slitaz. Now, it seems as an impossible task with my part-time efforts.

    Anyway thanks again for your time.

    SliTaz doesn't have a /usr/local/ directory so you'll need to use --prefix=/usr with ./configure.

    Anyway, do you have slitaz-toolchain, slitaz-dev-pkgs and the required *-dev packages of the stuff apache requires installed?

    No i dont have,

    best regards
