Re: access repository via samba

I presume you are trying to share a 'web folder' on the XP machine: - It
will probably never work (like most things on windows)

This is how to mount a drive using davfs (you need coda installed in
your kernel)
http://blog.akbkhome.com/blog/archives/19_subversion_and_davfs.html#extended

You could also have a look at lufs, someone also mentioned using
gnome-vfs to mount drives.

One of these days I might get round to hacking changedfiles
[http://www.bangstate.com/changedfiles/] to write via standard svn
commands to a repository - as davfs can be a little slow doing a large
number of file operations.

Regards
Alan
