1) Is this "project" a Subversion repository or a Subversion working
copy? You need to point Subclipse URL at a repository.

2) Open preferences to Team -> SVN. Which adapter are you using? Given
that you are on Linux, odds are that you are using the JavaSVN adapter,
which does support the file:// protocol for repository access.

So you probably need to setup an svnserve process so that you can access
your repository via the svn:// protocol. The other option is to use SSH
and the svn+ssh:// protocol to access your repository.
