Using with Subversion 1.4.3

Asked by Björn Schneider


is there any way/patch to use the bzr-svn (0.3.3) plugin with Subversion 1.4.3?

I already tried the patch listed on the homepage at (, but of no avail. It still reports "Installed Subversion version does not have updated Python bindings. See the bzr-svn README for details." (the check doesn't find the "svn_delta_invoke_txdelta_window_handler" in

Commentig-out the check doesn't help either, as then another component isn't found later on.

The only working version (below trunk/1.5, which I haven't tested yet) is 1.3.2 using the patch of (actually I've used the Gentoo Linux portage overlay of his to be able to install bazaar, bzr-gtk and bzr-svn using the package management).

Did I miss anything? Or is there currently really no way to use the 1.4 branch of subversion?

It works ok with that patch and subversion 1.4.3. Are you sure the patch was applied ok and there are no old installations of subversion hanging around?

The patch was supplied ok. and there was no other svn command lurking around. The problem was, some swig files had to be re-created manually (as the 1.3.2 ebuild does). Maybe the subversion-packages of Gentoo have them prebuilt, while the original source tarball hasn't.

I've branched it at and contacted 'Malevolent' so he can merge it - maybe it could start as new project on, so it's more easily to find for Gentoo enthusiasts :)

Thanks again,
