Using Subclipse (Subversion Client) with Eclipse Ganymede on Mac OS X

I had some trouble with this (updated my Eclipse for my p300 development), however this works for me on 10.4.x:

  1. Install the CollabNet SVN package from http://www.collab.net/downloads/community/
  2. Install Eclipse Ganymede
  3. In Eclipse, in Help -> Software Updates -> Add Site http://subclipse.tigris.org/update_1.4.x
  4. Check the latest Version of Subclipse and JavaHL and have it installed
  5. Restart Eclipse.. and you don’t get “unable to load default SVN client” anymore :)

The svn binaries are now in /opt/subversion, so maybe you also have to adapt your PATH variable in $HOME/.profile
