    SuSE Linux 9.2 and earlier do not ship with any (up to date) version of Subversion. However, unofficial packages exist in the projects/apache/subversion directory of SuSE mirrors.

    So you either can get the sources or go to some of the mentioned mirrors.

    I've tried internet search and with no luck.  I read somewhere that SLES 9 is based of the 9.2 and I should look for 9.2 .rpms.  Problem is, the ones I have found are really early versions of subversion and they all have many dependencies for modules that could conflict with the OS.  Looking for assistance from someone who has successfully installed it by using .rpm or compiled it on Suse Linux Enterprise 9.

    So then just go for around self compiling. Install the proper development files e.g the libapr development files. Load the sources
    extract them run
    make install that should all what is needed.

    You can get the sources from:
