Netbeans Profile/nbm - PATH problems hindering access to remote repository

Hi All,

Many thanks for all the useful posts to this list.

I'm having some trouble getting the subversion profile to work within
Netbeans v3.6 when running on Mac OS X v10.3.4 ("Panther"). I've
searched the list but not found any posts discussing the problem I'm

I've created a local repository into which I imported an existing
project. I could then check out a copy of the project from the command
line. From within NetBeans, I could also checkout the project, if I
copied my command-line svn parameters into the SVN Netbeans Profile.

I then created a remote repository on another machine and imported the
same project into it. I could switch to using "svn+ssh://<remote IP
number>" instead of "file://" - all other info was the same as for the
local repository and could via the svn command-line program easily
checkout the project from the remote machine. When I took the same svn
parameters and placed them in the SVN Netbeans Profile fields, I could
no longer use the svn 'checkout' command, as I could with the local
repository. I had mounted a 'Version Control' entry in the Netbeans
Filesystem window, as I had for the project in the local repository,
but no svn commands worked.

The error I kept getting - "svn: No such file or directory" - indicated
to me the SVN Netbeans Profile wasn't able to locate my svn
command-line client; possibly, there was a problem with the PATH
environmental variable Netbeans was using. In fact, for both the local
and the remote 'Version Control' mount, I needed to use the
'Versioning' --> 'Customize filesystem' command and add a PATH variable
to their environments. I defined that variable to be "/sw/bin:$PATH".
This seemed to enable the SVN Profile to successfully find the svn
client program for access to the project in the local repository, but
not to the project in the remote repository.

I should add I'm using the svn binaries built by Fink. That means they
are located at "/sw/bin". This had been added to the PATH variable in
my User environment, which makes it possible for me to access the svn
binaries from the command line.

Has anyone experienced a problem like this?

Does anyone know how to explicitly define (or even just view) the PATH
env variable being used by Netbeans v3.6 when run on Mac OS X v10.3.4?
I've tried to send it to the JVM running the Netbeans application via
Netbeans 'ide.cfg' file, but doing that didn't change anything. I
still got the same error when running svn commands with Netbeans
against the svn remote repository project I had in my 'Filesystem'

Many thanks for any help you can offer.
