RE: Problem using SVN

Kevin,

The first time I started with Subversion in Windows, I was up and
running in half an hour. So it can be done, don't worry :)

Reading some documentation is mandatory though, if you're in a hurry,
just read the quick start guide:
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/svn.intro.quickstart.html
( just replace all unix paths with your normal windows directories )

If you have a problem with the command-line commands, install
TortoiseSVN, a nice GUI integrated with explorer:

You know that Subversion is not plainly copying files to its repository
like SourceSafe does do you? Your files are stored in revision files in
the c:\svn\yourrepos\db\revs folder. What list do you refer to?
You need to 'svn checkout' again to create your local working copy.

regards,

Lieven.

Subject: Problem using SVN

Hello. New to subversion. Very confusion program -- easy to see why there
are ten pages of FAQs. Half a day to try and install/get everything to
work, still trying. Confused by the directories and where to put things --
seems like the old DOS3.1, need to make a special c:\SVN directory to make
it work. I imported a bunch of files, then tried to import another, and not
much happened. Tried to add it from command line, and it accepted the
command. It does not show up in the list, but trying to add it again
results in a failure - already added.
 
Yargh. Back to the old CM tool. I was hopeful, too. Maybe next year?.?
