after an upgrade from subversion 1.1.3 to 1.2.0 on server side I'm running in some trouble with old repositories. I don't suceed to checkout a branch of the old repository to a new location (and new PC) using the new windows binaries for 1.2.0 which show the same revision number within "--version" commandline option. The following error apperas every time (it's a german installation!):
D:\werner\Abi84>svn co http://gomez/svn/Abi84/entw entw
All mentioned files exist in the repository and are not deleted. The mentioned file "SingleSchueler.template.svn-base" does exist on the disk! After the error appears the Directory "Templates" is locked. Removing the the directory, doing a cleanup and updating the workspace lead to the absout same result.
My installation is a server on Debian LINUX created from source tarball using Berkeley DB and the Java 1.4.2_04 SDK from Sun. The client is installed from the windows binaries.
The same action on the LINUX server using the client which was created from source tarball works fine when a checkout of this repository to a new loacation is done. The difference is beside the OS itself the type of filesystem of the destination. While LINUX was checking out to "ext2" fils system Windows XP must use a FAT32 partition. But I thought that the filesystem is only relevant for the server and here for the Berkeley DB.
Any help is welcome since I'm using a more important repository which must without discussion use exaktly this combination of srver version and OS and client version and OS!
Thanks in advance
