I am trying to install pysvn on my CentOS server and it says that -lneon is gone.
After searching their mailing lists for a bit I found what neon means but it doesn't say how can I get it?

Here's my make command output:

Why not install the distro-packaged software, yum install neon-devel (not sure of the name)? Also, why not install the distro-packaged pysvn? –  Tshepang Nov 23 '10 at 19:56
    
Because at the time of posting I didn't know what yum does, also it does not work. Config Error: Error accessing file for config file://///etc/yum.repos.d/WebFacti on.repo –  the_drow Nov 23 '10 at 20:06
    
Can you please ask here (new Question) for help with troubleshooting that yum error you are getting. You really got to use distro-supplied tools, unless you have a very good reason not to (EG, you want bleeding-edge software not yet packaged by the distro). –  Tshepang Nov 24 '10 at 9:28
    
It's simple, I don't have root access and yum is not allowed without root access. –  the_drow Nov 24 '10 at 9:41
    
Can you use @username next time: meta.stackoverflow.com/q/43019. –  Tshepang Nov 24 '10 at 10:23

Removing -lneon solves this for me.

How did you remove -lneon? –  Tshepang Nov 23 '10 at 22:27
    
@Tshepang He probably meant removing it from the makefile. It's rather odd that it would be included if the project didn't actually depend on it though –  Michael Mrozek Nov 24 '10 at 2:15

I removed it from the makefile. Turns out you only need it to connect through http and my script runs locally. –  the_drow Nov 24 '10 at 6:05
