Installation on RHEL/CentOS 6

  1. Enable the EPEL repository by following the instructions http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL/FAQ. As of Spring 2014, EPEL is enabled with:
    rpm -Uvh http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/i386/epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm
  2. Fix error in /etc/yum.repos.d/epel.repo. In the [epel] section uncomment the baseurl line. Per “Could not retrieve mirrorlist” during yum update using EPEL repo” https://access.redhat.com/site/solutions/196923.
  3. If behind a proxy,
    vi /etc/yum.conf
  4. Troubleshoot with URLGRABBER_DEBUG=1 yum check-update
  5. Follow the instructions found on the Fedora page which are currently:
    yum install rabbitvcs*

Installation on RHEL/CentOS 5

RHEL/CentOS 5 users have a couple options for installing RabbitVCS. You can install from our tarball archive, or directly from our Subversion repository. We're working on getting RabbitVCS packaged for CentOS 5 (via rpmforge).

NOTE: Our standard nautilus extension does not work with CentOS5/RHEL5, but we have a simpler, compatible extension (using the same dialogs) that does work.

1. Add the RPMForge Repositories. Instructions are at http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories/RPMForge

2. Install Packages:

yum install pygtk2 subversion subversion-devel gcc gcc-c++ neon-devel python-devel pygtk2-devel eel2 eel2-devel python-configobj nautilus-devel meld libX11-devel

3. Download nautilus-python bindings at http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sources/nautilus-python

  • Make sure you get v0.5.0, NOT v0.5.1
  • Build/install with: ./configure ; make; su -c 'make install'

5. Download and build the pysvn extension source kit. You'll need one built to work for subversion 1.4. Version 1.6.3 works well.

cd Source
python setup.py backport
python setup.py configure
mkdir /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/pysvn
cp pysvn/__init__.py /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/pysvn
cp pysvn/_pysvn_2_4.so /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/pysvn

6. Download the tarball and from the top folder type:

sudo python setup.py install

Once that is done working, look in the clients folder and read the README file for each client/plugin to learn how they are installed.

From our Subversion Repository

Installing from trunk or from a branch is relatively straight-forward. First, install the dependencies listed above, then follow our developer installation instructions.
