When getting the error message that your subversion (svn) client is to old, e.g like this one in German:

Updating Java6 from u6 to u14 on Ubuntu powered Dell Mini 9

August 12, 2009

Sometimes a newer Java6 version must be installed, e.g. to get support of full screen applications. But updates for the Dell Mini 9 are not issued as regular as required to solve this problem. Therefore I have decided to install the required packages by hand using packages compiled for other Ubuntu Hardy powered LPIA systems.
