I had a Windows only machine and I have now move to a Linux Machine
because of a requirement for 64bit VMWare etc.
To maintain work on old MS Documents for customers I am running
Windows in VMWare with mapped drives to the Linux machine. I have
migrated the repository from the windows machine to the Linux machine
(7GB). I am planning to use the Windows VM as a processing front-end
to the Linux box, to get access to the better tools in Windows than in
Linux - possibly having the best of both worlds ...
I could view the repository using Tortoise but could not check-in or
check-out any files. Any changes were detected, but could not manage
I configured svnserve on the Linux box and now I can do the
a) Browse the repository using svn://userID@host/project-in-repos/files
b) Import directory trees from the Windows VM into the Linux
repository - (wow)
c) I can check-in updates on modified files, successfully !!! (wow)
I cannot do the following:-
a) checkout any new projects or files into the mapped drive to the
- the top level directory is created + the .svn directory,
then I get an error message stating that the .svn directory cannot be
created as it already exists ==> tortoise just created it
b) I cannot add new/checkout files to the repository, using the
tortoise "+" submenu ....
TEST: I can checkout projects from the repository in a truly local
directory within the Windows VM Image.
I thought that I was doing so well.
Any hints on how to go forward ?
