Hello List,

I tried to import my old project into a subversion repository.
But it fails always with the same error message.
If I type:
$ svn import svn svn://linuxserver/test3 -m "test entry"
I get the following message:

----
svn: Valid UTF-8 data
(hex:)
followed by invalid UTF-8 sequence
(hex: b0 33 06 08)
----
Used Version and setup:
My server is running on Suse 9.1 using the "svnserv -d -r <path>".
$rpm -q -v subversion
subversion-1.1.3-7.1
On my work pc running Suse9.2
$rpm -q -v subversion
subversion-1.1.3-7.1
I tried some files one by one which work fine, then I moved this files in
a newly created directory and tried to import the whole directory. And
get the same result as above.
It seems that only importing a directory cause this problem.
I tried this also directly on the server, with the same result. Single
file works, directory did not work.
I tried it also using TortoiseSVN on WinXP Home and it worked fine. So I
think my server setup is ok and working.
I also tried to use a local repository on my work pc running Suse9.2
$ svn import file://......
Same results.
It seems that there is a problem in the client libs of svn. At least in
the one I use.
I get these from 
ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/people/poeml/subversion/9.1-i386/subversion-1.1.3-7.1.i586.rpm
for the server running Sue9.1.
And the right packet for Suse9.2 of corse for my work pc.
Any idears why this happen ?!
Thanks
Juergen
PS: I am a subversion newbe. But I read almost the entire "subversion
book" and found no help about this, so I hope to find help here.
