I have an AWS Linux machine running Amazon Linux:

Linux XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX 4.4.30-32.54.amzn1.x86_64 #1 SMP Thu Nov 10 15:52:05 UTC 2016 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

And I am trying to install "svnmucc"

But "yum install subversion" does not install it and I don't find how to install it except by compiling the sources of subversion which I don't want to do.

It looks like it is available on some other Linux distributions so it should be possible on this distribution.

You can find out whether it is available at all by asking yum to provide information on what package contains a given pathname (which can contain wildcards). For example:

yum whatprovides */svnmucc

This is done this way so that it will match /usr/sbin/svnmucc and /usr/bin/svnmucc and any other possible dirname.

If the distribution provides it, this command will display information about which package contains it.

For AWS , it would give:

yum install subversion-tools
