I need to install subversion client with version something like 1.8. But I need it for ubuntu 16.04. In current repos version is obviously higher.

I tried to to find some sources or repos with needed version but I can't found abything useful except for few someonse private repos. Where can I find and install svn 1.8 client for ubuntu?


Get the source package from a previous version (apt-get source subversion=<exact version number>), install required libraries ( apt-get build-dep subversion) then build yourself with dpkg-buildpackage. You'll get a subversion-xx.deb, so dpkg -i subversion*deb.

  • ubuntu says that I should place sorces URI into sources.list. Tried to add deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/svn/ppa/ubuntu precise main deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/svn/ppa/ubuntu precise main but there is no change. – user1858864 Nov 18 '16 at 15:59
