I currently sell a program to admin the Subversion server on Windows. I had several customers ask me, if my program could admin a Linux box through a mapped Samba drive. I need to setup a test server in VMWare.
Linux is pretty easy to setup nowadays. My current issues come with not knowing how/where Linux program install to, and the permissions needed to run software there. I'm already very familiar with Subversion on Windows. The red book has been unhelpful (at least to me) on Linux. I have read several HOW-TO guides, but I haven't been able to find something that answers my questions. Mostly, it's because of the premise that most of the guides I've read that you already have to know Linux.
So here are my questions:
- Where do the Subversion binaries install to?
- Where do the Subversion command-line programs install to?
- What permissions are needed to run a program that calls the command-line programs? I was told that I needed to do a CHMOD 755 on the command-line program in question.
The main reason I chose OpenSuse and/or Ubuntu is because I need to run Mono binaries.
