Re: Leopard + Samba permissions issue?

Hi
I have been looking at svn and samba recently, but only with the windows client.
 There are comments in the windows versions of apr_file_rename() regarding not
being able to rename when the destination file is R/O on windows, you can do this on
unix. The problem is probably in this area where the apr routines on a unix client
expect the rename() library call to be able to rename over a read-only file irrespective
of the file system referenced.
  You could create a patch to change the destination file to read/write before the
rename library call, like the windows version of the apr_file_rename does.
 I simpler idea for the user could be to add the configuration line force
"create mode 0200" to the smb.conf file on the Samba server, this keeps the .svn
files read/write and should work as long as you don't run the svn client on the server
machine ( which is why this isn't a solution for me)
