I am using the subclipse package as well. For me it came prepackaged by
Mandriva. So my setup was limited to 'urpmi eclipse-subclipse' and of course
the eclipse-cdt and eclipse itself).
I don't remember having done any other configuration to get svn to work.
I heard that if you wish to install plugins manually, that can indeed be
challenging, due to some bugs in earlier version of Eclipse.
I had a short conversation on this a while ago with the Fedora Eclipse
maintainer. He claimed this was fixed in Fedora 12. But that's not my active
development environment, so I don't know.
