Subject Re: Repo for latest 1.9 svn binaries for 32-bit RHEL 6?
Date Tue, 11 Apr 2017 13:17:08 GMT
Hi Doug:

The reason is pretty simple: we develop embedded software for a 32-bit platform and compile
for both the target (using a cross compiler) and also natively so we can run unit and integration
tests on our CentOS workstations.  Our application is not (yet) 64-bit compatible.  Now I
know I can run a 32-bit compiler on a 64-bit host OS, but we also need to support a bunch
of older projects on our 32-bit infrastructure and we haven’t taken the time to qualify
them all on x86_64.  I’m in the process of automating the CentOS 7 x86_64 installation but
have hit a few snags along the way.  Eventually (3-6 months) we will be moving to 64-bit CentOS
7 (or possibly 64-bit Ubuntu), but until then we will continue to use 32-bit CentOS 6.  So
if it’s not too much of a hassle, I would really appreciate if you can turn the 32-bit CentOS
6 builds back on.

(i686) Subversion binaries for RHEL 6?  I’ve been using the WANdisco SVN Repo 1.9 (
<>), but it only has version 1.9.5-1
for 64-bit (x86_64).  The latest 32-bit binaries in that repo are for version 1.9.4-1, which
are almost a year old.
