FYI: Using subversion under FreeBSD 4.9-STABLE

I'd like to use subversion under FreeBSD 4.9-STABLE. I ran into some
problems creating the repository using svnadmin create: executing

  svnadmin create /path/to/repository

caused the svnadmin process to hang. So I used truss (a tool like strace
for FreeBSD) to check what happens. The output of truss showed me, that
subversion stopped at a read call at file descriptor 14, which was, in
this case, a file descriptor pointing to /dev/random. So I did a 'cat
/dev/random' to check, if there is really no output from the /dev/random

user@srv001:~ > cat /dev/random
user@srv001:~ >

The positive effekt of this action was, that svnadmin returned from the
read() call (and stepped into the next read() call on /dev/random after
closing the handle and opening a new one). I did this three times and
after that, svnadmin exited with EXIT_SUCCESS. Now, everything works

Just for your information.


Coming soon: Visual Edlin for Windows.
