Today, the mediatemple (dv) 3.5 was released. To my pleasure, its php is compiled with the tokenizer module, which is required for the software I’m deploying, so I’ve decided to give the (dv) another try.
The developer tools now include svn! You don’t need to follow these instructions to install subversion – just create a support request with MediaTemple to install the developer tools. If you need yum, the command below should add it successfully.
Mysteriously, neither the default packages nor the “developer’s tools” include subversion, and how could we live without subversion? When I searched for handy instructions on how to go about installing it, I found only links to my previous post. This post serves as an update for the (dv) 3.5.
The 3.5 edition is running on CentOS 5, so we need the rpm for that version:
$ rpm -Uvh http://mirror.centos.org/centos/5/os/i386/CentOS/yum-3.0.5-1.el5.centos.5.noarch.rpm
[the above command is updated from yuri's comment that the dependencies are included in a stock (dv). thanks! yuri also says that subversion is now included in the developer tools. i haven't yet confirmed it, but it's wonderful if true! it's true, and wonderful.]
Check if it’s installed:
$ rpm -q yum
With yum installed successfully, we can use it to install Subversion.
$ yum install subversion
That should do it.
