RE: Commit fails on OSX accessing windows repository

Here are a few more details as requested. Hope they can shed a little
more light on things :/

Access control for the repository is using the basic authentication
provided by svnserve.conf file and a password file. I have been using
svn://servername to access the repository only.

I cannot see any cached credentials in .subversion/auth or any sub
directories of it (svn.simple, svn.ssl.server, svn.username) I have
left the install on the mac in default config so it should be caching

I have used the OSX client to connect to another test repository that I
found online. Adding and commiting to this repository worked fine but
there was not authentication.

Disabling authentication on the svn server allows the mac client to
connect and commit with no errors. I would be happy enough with this
for now but it doesn't keep an author without authenticating (at least
it appears that way to me).

The full error from the mac client is:

subversion/libsvn_client/commit.c:832: (apr_err=170001)
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
subversion/libsvn_ra_svn/client.c:309: (apr_err=170001)
svn: Can't get password

Process finished with exit status 1.

I was hoping that someone more clueful would answer, but it looks like
you've got everyone stumped.

If I'm reading correctly, this error means Subversion doesn't know how
to handle the type of authentication requested. I don't see why it's
commit-specific, though. Just to be sure I'm not making bad
assumptions, could you let us know a few more details?

What's the access control for the repository?
Do you have cached credentials for this repository somewhere in
Will the OS X client access other repositories without problems?
