I've tried installing the newest version of SVN but nothing is working.

On yum there is 1.7. When downloading rpm/zip error occurs when trying to configure. Setting some additional repositories failed also.

Does anybody have a proven way on how to do it?

  • See this question and answer for reasons you should not compile source packages on binary systems. As such, does this post help? BTW, yum is not the package manager. – eyoung100 Dec 9 '14 at 17:24
  • Not really, installation of rpms fails. – Reeebuuk Dec 10 '14 at 15:52
  • Post the output of the failure. – eyoung100 Dec 10 '14 at 16:48

Step 0 : Remove old version of subversion (if already installed)

#yum remove subversion

Step 1: Setup Yum Repository

Create a new repo file /etc/yum.repos.d/wandisco-svn.repo and add following content

name=Wandisco SVN Repo

Step 2: Install Subversion Package

# yum clean all
# yum install subversion

Step 3: Verify Subversion Version

# svn --version

svn, version 1.8.13 (r1667537)
   compiled Apr  2 2015, 15:54:41 on i686-pc-linux-gnu

    Under CentOS 7, I also had to do a yum remove subversion-libs in order for the install to succeed. – sakra Dec 22 '17 at 13:25
  • Not a big deal, but the link is broken. Currently your only options are svn-1.10 and svn-1.11 where you have svn-1.8 – Jon McClung Feb 25 '19 at 21:21
