Re: Sharing a repository between linux and win32

Hello,

There was a recent thread about this, and unfortunately, this is not
possible. Linux and Win32 version of BerkeleyDB store information
differently, and hence, are not compatible together. The only thing you
could do is to have two repositories, and exchange dumpfiles between
them.

Bye,
François
