    problems in compiling svn from source...

    while compiling svn from source i faced a problem

    it might sound trivial as i m a beginner :

    ./configure worked fine
    but while making:

    linux-awa5:~/Desktop/subversion-1.4.6 # make
    cd subversion/libsvn_subr && /bin/sh /root/Desktop/subversion-1.4.6/libtool --tag=CC --silent --mode=link gcc -g -O2 -pthread -L/usr/lib -rpath /usr/local/lib -o auth.lo cmdline.lo compat.lo config.lo config_auth.lo config_file.lo config_win.lo constructors.lo ctype.lo date.lo dso.lo error.lo hash.lo io.lo kitchensink.lo lock.lo md5.lo nls.lo opt.lo path.lo pool.lo prompt.lo quoprint.lo simple_providers.lo sorts.lo ssl_client_cert_providers.lo ssl_client_cert_pw_providers.lo ssl_server_trust_providers.lo stream.lo subst.lo svn_base64.lo svn_string.lo target.lo time.lo user.lo username_providers.lo utf.lo utf_validate.lo validate.lo version.lo xml.lo /usr/lib/ -lldap -llber -ldb-4.5 -lexpat /usr/lib/ -lrt -lcrypt -lpthread -ldl -lz
    /usr/lib/gcc/i586-suse-linux/4.2.1/../../../../i586-suse-linux/bin/ld: cannot find -lldap
    collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
    make: *** [subversion/libsvn_subr/] Error 1

    what is this -lldap and where 2 get it from

    One of the moderators probably should split this off the original thread, as you are not supposed to "wake" really old threads.

    Perhaps this link will help:

    Compilers can produce warnings - make the compiler programmers happy: Use them!
    Please don't PM me for help - and no, I don't do help over instant messengers.

If they do, I ask them to find the smallest example that exhibits the problem and send me that. Mostly, they then find the error themselves. "Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.

    Just out of curiosity, why are you building SVN from source? Usually, you can get a binary that's already compiled for you.

    There's nothing wrong with compiling from source, it's just difficult sometimes, as you have seen.

    What Linux system are you using? Is it a 32-bit or a 64-bit one?
