Tutorial :Installing JavaHL 1.6 on CentOS


I'm looking to install the 1.6 version of JavaHL on CentOS, which proves to be more tricky then expected.

Has someone succeed doing so and can point a repo for this?

Thanks in advance.


I resolved that issue on rhel5u5 64 bit, but doing a ckeckout from the latest stable tag and doing a full build of subversion and the javahl binding svn co http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/subversion/tags/1.6.11 svn-1-6-11

./configure --prefix=/opt/subversion --enable-javahl --with-jdk=/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.6.0-sun.x86_64  make   make install  make javahl  make install-javahl  

You will need to get many dependencies from the repositories though.


On my CentOS 5 machine, the following worked like a charm:

yum install subversion-javahl

It pulled the rpm from the dries repo. If you don't have yum configured to pull from dries: http://dries.ulyssis.org/rpm/clientconfig.html

Remember, as has been said by others here, that JavaHL is pretty version-sensitive - I'm running subclipse 1.6 / subversion 1.6, so I installed JavaHL 1.6. Make sure you're installing the right version.


CollabNet provides an RHEL/CentOS RPM that includes JavaHL.



To do this for JavaHL 1.7 on centos5.8:

svn co http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/subversion/tags/1.7.5/ svn-1-7-5  cd svn-1-7-5/  ./get-deps.sh  #<---- not sure if that one's necessary.  . autogen.sh  ./configure --prefix=/opt/subversion --enable-javahl --with-jdk=/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.6.0  make  make install  make javahl  make install-javahl  


on Centos 6.3:

yum install subversion-javahl.x86_64
