I’m trying to fix this bug:

Assertion `*path != ‘/’’ failed.

I was able to fix some stuff, and now I’m trying to use Alien::SVN. Awesome! It worked!

On a debian system, I used CPAN to install Alien::SVN, like this:

force install Alien::SVN

It took me a few times to figure out that when prompted to configure Subversion, I had to use /usr/lib as the libdir:

Run Subversion's configure now? [y ]
Would you like to pass any arguments to configure? [--libdir=/usr/local/lib/perl/5.10.0/Alien/SVN --prefix=/usr/local ]--libdir=/usr/lib
