Re: Can't convert string from native encoding to 'UTF-8' with Tortoise SVN and Apache server on Ubuntu 8.04

Right, this was a server problem...
I couldn't find apr-iconv in Ubuntu repository, and I try not to
interfere with the repositories while compiling and installing manually.

But I found what caused the problem. It was because of a pre-commit
script, asking for a comment when commiting. The script is in UTF-8 and
contains text with accented characters. I removed them and it works. Not
the perfect solution, but it works...

Thanks !
