More svn problems - installed but not working (i think)

I’ve been struggling with installing svn, using a forum post on my
shared host (bluehost)'s forum:
http://www.bluehostforum.com/showthread.php?p=40515#post40515

I’m asking here because there’s not much traffic and not much replying
to my svn hassles on that forum…

I downloaded the tar file for svn (version 1.4.5), untarred it, then
entered the following:

./configure --prefix=$HOME --without-berkeley-db --with-zlib --with-ssl
–with-apr=/home/reeplies/src/apr-1.2.11
–with-apr-util=/home/reeplies/src/apr-util-1.2.10

(i’d already installed apr and apr-utils, assuming that it worked, i
don;t know much about this stuff but it looked like something was
happening)

The above generated a load of output. I then did “make” which generated
a bunch more output and “make install” which did some more. I thought
this would have installed svn but when i type

svn --version

i get
bash: svn: command not found

Does anyone know where i’m going wrong? I’m a newcomer to unix and have
only used svn locally in the windows shell before.

make install will need root permissions – so you could either su -
to log in as root with the root password, then make install; or, if
sudo is set up, use sudo make install and give your usual password.

Linux/Unix has a learning curve – if you’re deploying Rails apps to a
*nix server, you’ll probably need to get some reading done :slight_smile:

ah right…thanks!
Yep, it has been painful. Fortunately i have some friends with
experience who’ve very kindly helped me out :slight_smile:

This is all for my degree project - deployment’s got a whole chapter to
itself!

cheers
