I need specific version of subversion 1.6.x on my SLE11 (SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 (x86_64)) but I do not know how to install it.

If I follow the instructions on http://software.opensuse.org/download.html?project=devel:tools:scm:svn&package=subversion I get subversion 1.7.x installed.

The best ways is to get source code from subversion official site and compile it manually.

In my own experience, If you compile it without berkeley db, there would be no problem with other dependencies. To do so, you should pass --without-berkeley-db option to ./configure command.
