Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

Setting up a Subversion server is quite complicated. Setting up a Subversion server that runs through Apache is not trivil either. Setting up a Subversion server that runs through Apache, on a Windows machine that authenticates through a Windows domain is quite a piece of work. And to in addition install Python, Python bindings for Subversion, mod_python and ViewVC, then we are talking about a couple of hours work… The actual moving of data from the old server to the new one was at least easy to do.

I much prefer Debian, there I could have installed everything through Aptitude (even if I would still have had to configure it). But for private use, I prefer Git, here you do not need any complicated server at all.

Takk, har fikset den engelske versjonen nå. Ett klipp&lim-feil.
