Re: "null argument to internal routine" using repos.svn_repos_open (Python bindings)

Hello everyone !

After a few more tests, I find that I have a few other problems. For
instance, I can't get tools/examples/getfile.py to run.

Details, and sample run below:

WinXP SP2, fsfs repository on FAT32, client and server on same physical

$ svn --version
svn, version 1.1.1 (r11581)
    compiled Oct 23 2004, 14:47:47

$ svn info getfile.py
URL: http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/tags/1.1.1/tools/examples/getfile.py

$ python
Python 2.3.3 (#51, Dec 18 2003, 20:22:39) [MSC v.1200 32 bit (Intel)] on

$ python getfile.py D:\svn\repos rac/leadmanagement/trunk/build.xml
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "getfile.py", line 52, in ?
   File "getfile.py", line 49, in main
     core.run_app(getfile, args[0], args[1], rev)
   File "C:\Python\lib\svn\core.py", line 33, in run_app
     return apply(func, (pool,) + args, kw)
   File "getfile.py", line 22, in getfile
     repos_ptr = repos.svn_repos_open(path, pool)
SystemError: null argument to internal routine

I have found a thread by tonal on 2004-05-19 describing the same
problem: http://svn.haxx.se/dev/archive-2004-05/0812.shtml

Quoting tonal:
> ===command line:

> ==output:
> Using youngest revision 155
> Traceback (most recent call last):

> File "C:\Lang\Subversion\tools\examples\getfile.py", line 30, in
> file = fs.file_contents(root, filename, pool)
> SystemError: null argument to internal routine

The major difference I can see is that in tonal's case, he can open the
repository, whereas I cannot. I tried using Python 2.4, but got an
import error instead:

ImportError: Module use of python23.dll conflicts with this version of

So, what else can I do at this point ?

Thanks !
