Re: svnserver on win xp home: is it started up?

Thanks sussman,

What ended up working for me was specifying the repository on startup like
so: svnserve -d -r c:\a\f_repos

Then I specified the repository when doing checkout like so:

The key piece of information that I didn't have was that you don't specify
the drive name when checking out, even though you do when starting up the
repository. Counterintuitive!

Below are my notes, for the benefit of anyone looking through the archives
a few months from now trying to do the same thing on a windows machine.

0)Start out with C:\a\f_codebase, the code you want to import
1)Install subversion and tortoiseSVN
2)Make new directory (C:\a\f_repos)
3)Right click "create repository here'

4)add password file (called password.txt). Looks like this:

5)modify svnserve.conf to point to it and have a realm. Looks like this:
password-db = passwords.txt
realm = My First Repository

6)start up svnserve -d -r c:\a\f_repos

7)Right-click f_codebase. select "import" (see the files import 1 by one
8)Right-click f_repos, select "repo browser". yup it is there

9)Make new directory (C:\a\f_clientdir)
10)Right click->checkout. Specify svn://localhost:3690/a/f_repos
