apt-get install libxine1-ffmpeg

Subversion (SVN) server installation guide

Here comes a simple installation guide for Linux Debian servers. Most of the configuration should be the same for other Linux distributions but there could be some differences in the paths.

Configurations are different if you are using Apache 1 or Apache 2 and you won't be able to have the same functionalities and access methods.

Web server administrators are slow to move to Apache2 and most of us wish to keep Apache 1.3 on their production server. It is possible to use both Apache at the same time.

When running both version of apache, Apache 1.3 is the front-end server providing SSL encryption (https) and proxy server. Apache 2 become a dedicated SVN server listening on a specific port.
