Hi,
I am using redhat linux with a old svn client.
whenever i am trying to do the svn operations. i.e commit, update... i was told to update the svn client.
please let me know is there any command available that automatically update the svn client?

Thanks.
--Deepika.

First find out the package name by doing:

yum list | grep svn

Then update by running (replacing xxx by the package name):

yum update xxx

But there is a caveat - you might be running the latest svn client available for your version of RHEL. If that is the case, you might have to install the svn client manually from the subversion download site.

Actually, there's another caveat - yum isn't standard equipment until RHEL 5, I think. For older releases, you may just have to go to the RHEL updates site, download the RPM and update it manually (via the "rpm -Fvh" command). Actually, RPM can download and install directly, if you provide it with the package's URL.

There aren't separate client and server packages. According to my server, the latest-and-greatest subversion RPM is subversion-1.4.2-4.el5.
