I am getting a error while creating FSFS repository on network drive.
Here is the environment
MacBook Pro running bootcamp with the latest patch 2.1
OS: Windows XP Pro with Service Pack 3
Tortoise SVN version 1.5.2
Network Drive: 500 GB IOmega home network drive
What I did do:
Connected to the network drive using samba (installed by default on the network drive), connected using windows explorer and assigned drive z:. Now I create a folder using explorer and then right click on the folder and click "Create Repository Here" it come back with an error saying,
"Subversion reported an error while creating a repository!
Make sure the folder is empty and not write protected."
I know I have write permission, as I am able to create new folders to it.
Does anyone else have the same problem, if so can you please help, I need to get this up and running ASAP.
Thanks a million.
