 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
** Found 1 pre-existing rpmdb problem(s), 'yum check' output follows:
httpd-tools-2.2.15-15.sl6.1.x86_64 is a duplicate with httpd-tools-2.2.15-15.sl6.x86_64

Your installed packages (specifically httpd-tools) are out of sync with the distribution repositories. You need to get back into sync before you can move forward.

To resolve the issue:

  1. Use yum clean all to erase your local cache and metadata. It will get rebuilt the next time you run yum.
  2. Use yum distro-sync to bring your system into sync with the state of the repositories. This may both upgrade and downgrade packages, so inspect carefully what it intends to do before committing.

Once done, you should then be able to install further packages (such as subversion).

from http://tecadmin.net/install-subversion-1-8-on-centos-rhel/

create /etc/yum.repos.d/wandisco-svn.repo

For CentOS/RHEL 6 Users:

[WandiscoSVN]
name=Wandisco SVN Repo
baseurl=http://opensource.wandisco.com/centos/6/svn-1.8/RPMS/$basearch/
enabled=1
gpgcheck=0

For CentOS/RHEL 5 Users:

[WandiscoSVN]
name=Wandisco SVN Repo
baseurl=http://opensource.wandisco.com/centos/5/svn-1.8/RPMS/$basearch/
enabled=1
gpgcheck=0

then
# yum clean all
# yum install subversion
# svn --version


run `# yum remove subversion` to remove old version
