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.
