RE: Permission Denied

Neil, is this perhaps due to a case-mismatch in the repository name part
of the URL?

Subversion (we're still on 1.3.x) is inconsistent in enforcing
case-sensitivity of the repository name part of the URL. It will
successfully read the repository without regard to casing of the
repository name, however for writes (commits) to the repository, the
repository name in the URL *must* exactly match the name it has on the
server.

This has the confusing result of allowing a user to create a working
copy using an incorrect casing of the repository name, but then the user
will not be able to commit working copy changes back to the repository.
IIRC, an svn switch using the correctly cased repository name fixes the
broken working copy problem.

A faster test than using a working copy is to use the TSVN repository
browser: using an incorrect casing of the repository name, you'll be
able to successfully browse the repository. However, if you try to
(e.g.) add a folder (right-click, Add Folder) the operation will fail.

Subject: Permission Denied

Hi,

I am able to unable to commit my files to the SVN. I
can browse, see log, and do everything(absolutely
everything), except commit. The error shown is as
below:

Error: Commit failed (details follow):
Error: Can't create directory
'/var/lib/svn/some/db/transactions/173-1.txn':
Permission denied

Please Note : the commit works for my profile from
some other system with the same client installation..

I use a Windows XP professional version 2002 service
pack 2. My system is AMD Athlon XP 2200+ 1.81 GHz,
2.5GB RAM.

In the settings, -network-SSH client I have the link
C:\Program Files\TortoiseSVN\bin\TortoisePlink.exe
-|MyName

Please let me know the solution if any

Thanks in advance

Regards
Neil Bhasme
