Packages to get svn working on Hex 1.0.*

December 3, 2007

Trying to run svn on Hex 1.0.* you get the following error:

/libexec/ Shared object "" not found, required by "svn"

As geek00l pointed out, this can be fixed by issuing the following command:

cd /usr/ports/devel/apr-svn/ && make install clean

Assuming you have a ports tree downloaded into hex, but what if you don’t have access to the ports tree? (I can’t download the ports tree from my work) Well, I’ve created the packages you need to install in order to get svn to work properly.

First, download db42-4.2.52_5.tbz and apr-gdbm-db42-1.2.8_2.tbz to the same directory somewhere on the Hex machine. Then issue the following command:

sudo pkg_add -v ./apr-gdbm-db42-1.2.8_2.tbz

This will automatically install the db42 package as a dependency. After installing the apr package, svn should work without any problems.

You can see more packages on the Hex project page.
