I'm currently trying to install GIT on an RHEL5 box. I've tried to both build from source and install via yum. In both instances I continue to receive the error message (full error stack at the end):

Error: Missing Dependency: subversion = 1.4.2-2.el5 is needed by package subversion-ruby

If I'm reading this correctly I'm seeing that svn version 1.4.2 is needed however I am running version 1.4.2 on the system:


$ svn --version
svn, version 1.4.2 (r22196)
compiled Nov 20 2006, 07:17:37

Copyright © 2000-2006 CollabNet.
Subversion is open source software, see
This product includes software developed by CollabNet (http://www.Collab.Net/).

The following repository access (RA) modules are available:

* ra_dav : Module for accessing a repository via WebDAV (DeltaV) protocol.
- handles 'http' scheme
- handles 'https' scheme
* ra_svn : Module for accessing a repository using the svn network protocol.
- handles 'svn' scheme
* ra_local : Module for accessing a repository on local disk.
- handles 'file' scheme

The system has been running for nearly four years and I've only come across this problem when trying to install yum. Subversion is running without any issues and I've several ruby apps that are having no difficulty at all using the bindings.

I have been searching everywhere and cannot find any references to how someone gets around the problem. I confess I'm no linux deity so any help would be appreciated. Thanks so much in advance for whatever help comes this way.
