I have an odd little problem; certain directories in my svn repository can
not be checked out TO an nfs-mounted directory. I am not sure what causes
this problem, but it does not happen for everything in the repository. I
haven't been able to get any help on the users list or IRC, so hopefully
somebody here will have some ideas.
Here's an example:
The /home directory on my machine (rumble) is an NFS mount. In this
example, I create a new directory and import it:
rumble:/home/lcampagn$ mkdir test
rumble:/home/lcampagn$ svn import test svn+ssh://seca/test
Committed revision 124.
Now I check it back out to another location, add a file, and check it in
rumble:/home/lcampagn$ svn co svn+ssh://seca/test t
Checked out revision 124.
rumble:/home/lcampagn$ cd t
rumble:/home/lcampagn/t$ touch a
rumble:/home/lcampagn/t$ svn add a
rumble:/home/lcampagn/t$ svn ci
Transmitting file data .
Committed revision 125.
So far everything seems to be working, but if I check it out again and add
a directory instead, the commit fails:
rumble:/home/lcampagn/t$ cd ..
rumble:/home/lcampagn$ svn co svn+ssh://seca/test t2
Checked out revision 125.
rumble:/home/lcampagn$ cd t2
rumble:/home/lcampagn/t2$ mkdir b
rumble:/home/lcampagn/t2$ svn add b
rumble:/home/lcampagn/t2$ svn ci
svn: XML parser failed in '/home/lcampagn/t2'
svn: Malformed XML: not well-formed (invalid token) at line 27
Note that this does NOT happen if I am working out of a local filesystem
such as /tmp:
rumble:/tmp$ svn co svn+ssh://seca/test t2
Checked out revision 125.
rumble:/tmp$ cd t2
rumble:/tmp/t2$ mkdir b
rumble:/tmp/t2$ svn add b
rumble:/tmp/t2$ svn ci
Committed revision 126.
This problem does not only occur when I add directories to my data; I
can't find any specific trigger that causes the problem. I also have
trouble checking out directories onto NFS filesystems:
rumble:/home/lcampagn$ svn co http://seca.thunderlab/svn/vectormath v
svn: In directory 'v/DEBIAN'
svn: Can't copy 'v/DEBIAN/.svn/tmp/text-base/files.svn-base' to
'v/DEBIAN/files.tmp': No such file or directory
But again, this works fine on a local flesystem:
rumble:/home/lcampagn$ svn co http://seca.thunderlab/svn/vectormath /tmp/v
Checked out revision 127.
I have tried using both http and svn+ssh protocols, and I have also tried
using two different versions of svn (1.0.9 from Debian unstable and 1.0.6
from Ubuntu). What's even stranger to me is that I have not always had
this problem; it started recently for no particular reason (I can not
remember having changed anything that might have caused this).
Any help would be appreciated!
