If I'm understanding you correctly, there are 2 issues.

Getting new apache and subversion that 9.1 doesn't have.

Only one. Just getting subversion up to 1.1.3 and apache to 2.0.53

Letting YOU do the update.

I just wanted you to know I have tried a couple of ways to do it. I don't really care about YOU or YaST because they don't seem to do the job. If they worked for me I'd be moving on already.

Were you able to get the newer versions installed and working without YOU?
(configure, make, make install, etc.) and then having trouble making the new rpm's?

No. I wouldn't know where to start with configure, make, etc. I went down the rpm road after seeing Graham Smith's post. It seemed like it would contribute to getting YaST to ork for me.

I myself have never played with making rpm's, let alone update rpm's that YOU would recognize.

Now you tell me ...

If these are the case I would get it working first,

That is what I'd love to do. Where do I start?

so you can move on, and then see if 9.3 doesn't have the same versions that you wanted to goto anyway.

I'm sure 9.3 will be up to date with everything. I'm an optimist :)

Thanks Brad

This is not a top-post. It is a new thread which introduces an older
problem and copies parts of previous posts in an attempt to clarify the
situation so a generous SuSE guru can help me - and perhaps others?

I need to update subversion and apache2 on SuSE 9.1 and after
downloading patches YOU doesn't offer the current versions.

My plan A is to buy SuSE 9.3 and hope they are up to date in there.
Being in a hurry I don't want to wait for 9.3.

Plan B is to start again somehow. I tried a week or so ago and didn't
succeed following Graham Smith's advice (9 March 2005 - Re: [SLE] Make
yast repository)

Have a look at this article in the sdb.
Generating YaST Installation Sources

Any help gratefully received. As mentioned previously I'm new at all this.
