Topic: anybody here have tried svn client on openwrt?

i cannot find one such ipk package on the download repository.
anyone could help?

openwrt@devel-env:~/wndr3700$ ./scripts/feeds search -r packages subversion
Search results in feed 'packages':
subversion-client               subversion client tools
subversion-libs                 subversion libs
subversion-server               subversion server

This (subversion) does not seem to exist anymore.
Any good reason not to try to build it myself?
Is there any super-lightweight alternative subversion-client (it is not the server I need on OpenWrt, and not the advanced client features either)?

I zoOok, I managed to compile svn (but for linksys wrt1200ac). are you insterested in the steps?

I sure am interested.

I am also interested. No hurry, but subversion would be nice.

Looks like the same SVN package from the OpenWRT old_packages git repository. To reactivate the old_packages, add the following line to your feeds.conf file.

src-git old_packages git://

Then, once you run scripts/feeds update old_packages; scripts/feeds install -a -p old_packages to update your OpenWRT, execute make menuconfig and enable the subversion package under Network --> Version Control Systems and then recompile your OpenWRT.

If you don't like to add the old_packages, then either port the subversion package from the old_repository to OpenWRT GitHUB or wait for someone else to do this for you.

OK I am new to openwrt. I was searching on how to compile "feed" package but without luck.... thanks for your info.

arrrr.. another trick that I tested in Barrier Braker 14.07 with my older router:

opkg update

Install the libc:
opkg install … ar71xx.ipk

export URL_1209=""
opkg install $URL_1209/libaprutil_1.3.12-2_ar71xx.ipk
opkg install $URL_1209/subversion-libs_1.6.17-3_ar71xx.ipk
opkg install $URL_1209/subversion-client_1.6.17-3_ar71xx.ipk
opkg install $URL_1209/subversion-server_1.6.17-3_ar71xx.ipk

Unfortunately I have not tested on CC as there is no build for "mvebu"

Subversion packages are now back in the main development trunk. Simply "make menuconfig" and enable Subversion in Network -> Version Control Systems.

The discussion might have continued from here.
