I just upgraded subversion 1.6.11 to 1.9.4-1 on RH 6.8, and it's working okay by itself. But my Trac 1.0 application can no longer see my svn repos. According to http://www.wandisco.com/svnforum/forum/opensource-subversion-forums/apache-subversion-1-8-support/73237-importerror-usr-lib64-libsvn_swig_py-1-so-0-undefined-symbol-pycapsule_import the easiest solution to my problem is to downgrade to subversion 1.8.13-1. Since I didn't do an svnadmin upgrade, I think it should be okay to downgrade.
To do the upgrade to 1.9, I added a /etc/yum.repos.d/wandisco-svn.repo file that looked like this:
[WandiscoSVN] name=Wandisco SVN Repo baseurl=http://opensource.wandisco.com/rhel/$releasever/svn-1.9/RPMS/$basearch/ enabled=1 gpgcheck=0
and did this:
sudo yum upgrade subversion mod-dav-svn subversion-python
so to downgrade, I changed the baseurl line to svn-1.8 instead of svn-1.9
but when I do a
yum list subversion --showduplicates
all I see is this:
Installed Packages subversion-python.x86_64 1.9.4-1 @WandiscoSVN Available Packages subversion-python.x86_64 1.9.0-rc1 WandiscoSVN subversion-python.x86_64 1.9.0-rc2 WandiscoSVN subversion-python.x86_64 1.9.0-rc3 WandiscoSVN subversion-python.x86_64 1.9.0-1 WandiscoSVN subversion-python.x86_64 1.9.1-1 WandiscoSVN subversion-python.x86_64 1.9.2-1 WandiscoSVN subversion-python.x86_64 1.9.3-1 WandiscoSVN subversion-python.x86_64 1.9.4-1 WandiscoSVN
Even if I change the baseurl to svn-1.7, I still only see 1.9 choices, so I think it must not want to show me previous minor versions.
I took a guess and tried
sudo yum downgrade subversion-1.8.13-1
but I just got "No package subversion-1.8.13-1 available.
1) What to I have to do to downgrade to 1.8? I would really rather not uninstall and install (especially from binaries), because I tried that on an earlier attempt to upgrade to 1.9, and I ran into other dependency problems. Also, I'm not very good with Linux, and I'm afraid that would break the ldap authentication that someone who's since left the company set up for this.
2) Am I using the right baseurl for my wandisco-svn.repo? If not, how can I find the right one? On their site, I only see links to download the binaries, not how to configure a .repo. I found the .repo text I am using from various "how to install" examples, but none of the examples explain where they got the URL from.
