Hi All,

Has anyone compiled Subversion for Sharp ROMs (I'm using Watapon 1.4.1 on 5600)? I didn't find it in elsix or in google, and it'd be pretty handy to have on my Z I think.

Thanks!

I tried to cross-compile it, but haven't succeeded, because it needs to run some generated programs during the build. It should be possible to compile it natively on the Zaurus, but currently I haven't installed the development stuff.

I assume you talk about the client only?
Dave Kessler from Kopsis Engineering has put a svn client for pdaXrom:

http://kopsisengineering.com/rc11/

He used to be (or perhaps still is) active in the Sharp ROMs as well, so you might try to ask him... he posts regularly on this forum.

At one point I tried doing Subversion for Cacko but ran into a variety of problems. At the time it wasn't worth struggling through ... instead I installed Debian pocket workstation and just used the standard Debian subversion package that way.

Now that I'm running pdaXrom, I no longer have a native environment to compile for Sharp ROMs. My x-dev environment works great for some things, but large projects with complex build systems like Subversion can be mighty difficult to x-compile.

The package from kopsis works on the Cacko ROM as well. I have stripped the libraries (reduced size from 3.5 MB to 1.3 MB), put them into /opt/QtPalmtop instead of /usr (don't know if that's better, it's just where I put all programs) and added a dependancy on libiconv.

The resulting packages are attached for those interested.

One small problem: If you have LANG set, it doesn't work - use "LANG=C svn" then. I guess it's a problem with missing locale stuff, perhaps someone else knows a better solution?

Just a quick thanks for compiling it.

I also note that the link to Dave Kessler / Kopsis Engineering svn client is dead:

http://kopsisengineering.com/rc11/

Has there been any further movement on a more official subversion client compile?

I'm actually after the svn server to run on the Z if it's practical. Seeing as this is the device I'll have all the time it makes sense to have it as the server (providing I sync the database of course). I'd be interested in a pdaXrom version.

Yes, but it's a hack wink.gif
You can comment the LANG-related code in subversion/libsvn_subr/cmdline.c
Like that svn will always work in LANG=C, ignoring any specific locale you may have set.
Since I didn't find subversion in elsix, I've gone ahead and compiled it too... At least it is in elsix now.

I'm also interested in a pdaXrom version of svn, whether kopsis' version or anything newer. I can't find svn in pdaXrom's official/contrib feed.

Yeah, well, as I said, I couldn't compile it myself. And better a hack than a program that fails in some cases.

Nice. Can you do a 1.4 version as well? With that version a checked out repository needs less space.
gojira
Does anyone have svn version 1.4.2 for sharp rom?

Thanks!

Didn't know about that, good to know... I'm currently very low on spare time, but I'll msg if I do get to it...

There we are: subversion 1.4.4 on Elsix:
http://www.elsix.org/index.php?w=project&p=subversion

It was nasty to build with the default zaurus toolchain. You'll need the following to try for yourself:
http://subversion.tigris.org/downloads/sub...n-1.4.4.tar.bz2
http://subversion.tigris.org/downloads/sub...s-1.4.4.tar.bz2
http://ssel.vub.ac.be/Members/DennisWagela...g-1.4.4.tar.bz2

The last file contains some scripts and instructions to make the build work...
