I'm trying to install svn and running into some problems The command I am running is sudo apt-get install svn . When i run this, i get the error "unable to locate package svn". Why is this? What should i do to fix it?

The package is called subversion (abbreviated svn ). You need to install it by running

sudo apt-get install subversion

This package contains the svnserve daemon too (not started by default). If you want to host a subversion server over HTTP, you must install apache2 and configure it accordingly.
