SUSE and subversion

by @ 7:07 am. Filed under General SUSE

I thought that it was cool that US retailer W.S. Badcock is switching to Suse for 320 stores. Keep it rockin’, baby.

I spent Friday installing subversion. THERE is some cool software. I spent half the day reading the subversion documentation. Then, when I felt the ADD kick in, I knew I couldn’t read anymore. I had to get started with the hands-on portion. I fired up YAST and installed subversion without a hitch. I got a repository created and edited the config and password files.

What’s cool is that subversion caches usernames and passwords so that you don’t have to type them in 10 thousand billion times everytime you want to check files out or in. I could check stuff out but I couldn’t check them in. After a few minutes, I discovered that the default configuration makes it so that repositories are read-only. After changing a config file to allow commits, I was crackin’.

Right on, subversion is the man, just like SUSE Linux.
