Fwd: Re: Fwd: Berkeley DB error - URGENT!!!

From: Rachael Russell <rachael.russel_at_flightcentre.co.uk>
Date: 2005-05-04 14:57:16 CEST

Ok yet another error!!!

Following steps below, have got as far as dumping out the repostory only
to have it fail:

svnadmin dump /var/svnrepos_backup/ > /var/recovered.svndump
* Dumped revision 0.
* Dumped revision 1.
...
* Dumped revision 26.
svn: No copy with id '1' in filesystem '/var/svnrepos_backup/db'

!!!!!! Please does anyone have any ideas on this?! Nothing in google....

thx
 Rachael

Have seen this fix suggested in some forums -- anyone know if it's safe or
releavent to this issue??!
-------------------------------
I'm getting the error "svn: bdb: call implies an access method which is
inconsistent with previous calls". How do I fix this?

Berkeley DB 4.1 has shown itself to be rather unstable - both 4.0 and 4.2
are better. This error message is a symptom of one unique way in which 4.1
will sometimes break.

The problem is that the database format field for one of the tables that
make up a Subversion BDB-type repository has become corrupted. For unknown
reasons, this is almost always the 'copies' table, which switches from the
'btree' type to the 'recno' type. Simple recovery procedures are outlined
below - if they do not succeed, you should contact the Subversion Users
mailing list.

    * Ensure that no other processes will attempt to access your
repository.
    * Now, back up your repository to a tar or zip file or similar.
    * Change to the db subdirectory of your repository.
    * rm __db.* log.*
    * db_dump -p -r copies > copies.dump
    * Now edit copies.dump. In the section near the top, change
"type=recno" to "type=btree", and delete the line beginning "re_len=".
    * rm copies
    * db_load copies < copies.dump
    * svnadmin dump .. > ../../my-recovered.svndump
    * Now create a new repository, reload the dump file just produced, and
copy across any custom hooks or configuration. Verify that the highest
revision number in the new repository is what you think it should be.
