Subject RE: Transmitting file data .svn: Commit failed
Date Wed, 10 Aug 2011 17:48:13 GMT
Hello again,

In hopes of fixing an error on apache server crashing every time a commit is done, I upgraded
my svn to:
svnadmin, version 1.6.17 (r1128011)

My openssl version is:
OpenSSL 0.9.7f 22 Mar 2005

And apache server:
Server version: Apache/2.0.54

So I downloaded the source for subversion and subversion-deps and compiled them:

./configure --with-ssl --with-libs=/usr/lib --prefix=/usr/local/src/subversion-1.6.17
make install

and now I get this error when I commit or svn list:
svn: SSL is not supported

any suggestion is highly appreciated.

Best regards,

The segmentation fault message means the server is crashing.
The client connection gets dropped when the crash happens.

You were saying you're using version 1.5.0 on Linux Fedora release 4.
That is very old, so I assume your setup was working for quite some
time. You should try to pinpoint which change on the server caused
this problem. Something must have changed recently.

As an aside, I'd highly recommend to upgrade your server to
Subversion 1.6.17 as soon as possible. The 1.5.x release series
will stop being supported soon (when 1.7.0 is released).
