  • Java error when installing uberSVN on Mac OS X Lion (10.7) or Mountain Lion (10.8)

    If you're trying to install uberSVN on a fresh install of Mountain Lion (or an upgrade from Lion) you may get an error saying that you need Java in order to continue.

    The reason for this is that Apple stopped including it's Java Runtime Environment (JRE) with the release of Lion.

    In order to use web pages or applications that use Java, including uberSVN, you'll need to install Java 1.6.

    To do this:
    - Open a terminal window and type "java - version" .
    -- OS X will then notice that Java is not installed and give you an option to download it

    - Java 1.6 will be automatically installed once the download is finished.
    --You can check that the install was successful by typing "java -version" again in the terminal window.

    Once this is complete run the uberSVN installer again and it will complete successfully.

    We'll get this in the official documentation shortly, and are looking at options to resolve this on the product side.

    We've updated our Mac OSX Installation Guide to reflect version 10.7. and include a section that about manually installing Apples Java JRE: Uber Guide - Installation 1.4 Mac OSX Installation Guide

      I've just upgraded a Mac mini running Mountain Lion and uberSVN to Mavericks. Lost uberSVN - wouldn't boot. Seems that Java was removed during upgrade. Can't find the Java 6 RE at Apple, they offer me 7 only.

      So unless there's a new version of uberSVN in the offing I'll have to install a plain vanilla svn.

      [Update] Just found out that installing Xcode on Mavericks automatically installs svn, so once I can get a launchd working and then work out how to extract the repos from the previous uberSVN install (no, I don't have a recent dump) I may be able to get some work done.

      [Update 2] Found the link to the Apple JRE 1.6 http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1572 and uberSVN installed successfully.
