RE: Tortoise SVN setup on SAMBA share under Sun OS

Thankyou Jean-Marc. I **did** read the Tortoise SVN book. On page 31,
section 4.4.3, it says: "To access a repository located on a network share
you can either use drive mapping, or you can use the UNC path." Etc. This
contradicts your statement below. (Note that the documentation also
specifically states that one **must** create an FSFS repository and not a
Berkeley DB. Perhaps this was what you were referring to...).

Regards,
Bert Gunter

First read the SVN book (svnbook.red-bean.com) to understand SVN. Then
decide on which SVN server setup you want.

You will come to the conclusion that sharing a repository with
file:/// access is NOT the way to go. File:/// access is only intended
for single-user local-filesystem repositories.

TortoiseSVN is an SVN client, but to host a repository you need to use
an SVN server.
