Re: unable to bump revision

Not that I am against Tortoise, but I wonder if you could use the svn
command line client to see what information you're getting? Do a "svn
checkout", see what version is checked out, do a comparison against
the files you have under Tortoise, make a minor in a file change in
the working copy you checked out using the Subversion command line
client, and commit.

Are you still getting an error?

Are you using bdb or fsfs as your repository database format? Sounds
like you're using bdb (it's what is used by default). It also sounds
like you manually removed a file that the bdb was using to track who
has access to the database. Only a single user at a time should be
committing changes into Subversion, and the lock file ensures that.

Fortunately, bdb logs its transactions. Try the "svnadmin list-dblogs"
command to see what the current bdb logfiles are and take a look at
them. Are there any error messages?

Also try the "svnadmin recover" command to see if you can recover from
your database errors.
