It is not my first time to install Subversion, but it is worth to record what I did. My system is Ubuntu 9.0.4 and Eclipse 3.5 and Netbeans 6.5.
Following the official documentation, I got the error in Eclipse: “Incompatible JavaHL library loaded. 1.6.x or later required.”
The reason is clear: JavaHL is not properly install or might version is too old.
Try: “sudo apt-get install libsvn-java”, but no update.
I had to compile from source code now according to . The tricky part is to let Eclipse know where is JavaHL. I tried add “-Djava.library.path=/usr/local/lib” to “eclipse.ini”, but did not work. Only “export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH” works for me.
Since Eclipse works now, it is time to try Netbeans according to . Just figure out where is SVN using “which svn” and then following the instrunction.
