RE: contains unsupported hostname msg when importing

Ok,

I have tried installing cygwin and using it instead of the command
line tool. I still get the same errors. Just so you have an idea of
the things that I have tried, I listed a small subset of them. None of
them work as you can see. Any suggestions? Oh, and what is RFC 1738
and RFC 2396 anyway?

Thanks,

Lee

It seem that the url is wrong.

The general url syntax for file scheme is:

file:///<file <file:///\\%3cfile> system path>

On windows platform is:

file:///<drive <file:///\\%3cdrive> letter>:/dir1/dir2....

On unix

file:///dir1/dir2 <file:///\\dir1\dir2> ....

I have seen many post for troubles caused by incorrect url syntax..

I suggest the reading of RFC 1738 and RFC 2396.

Guido.

Hey,

I am new to subversion and I have only used cvs a
little in the past so sorry if the answer to my question is obvious. I
am using Win XP and I am working from the command line. I have read the
first two chapters in the book and I am trying to get through the Quick
Start part. This is what I have done so far:

I first created a \path\to directory in a Subversion folder on
my C: drive (note: The Quick Start page in the book does not say to do
this, but it needs to be done, so it might be a good idea to add that
step to the book)

I then typed:

I then created the directories (tmp\project\branches,
tmp\project\trunk, tmp\project\tags) and files that were suggested by
the Quick Start.

The problem happens when I type this:

C:\...\Subversion>svn import .\tmp\project
file://./path/to/repos -m "initial import"

I get this back:

svn: Unable to open an ra_local session to URL

svn: Local URL 'file://./path/to/repos' contains unsupported
hostname

Again, I apologize if this is an obvious question. I have tried
many ways to type that command but nothing seems to work.

Thanks,

Lee
